Robert Downey Jr. Confirms Whether He Could Play Iron Man Again (And Why)

It makes sense Robert Downey Jr. would be interested in an Iron Man return. It was probably a very fun role to play, and he undoubtedly made a boatload of money from it. There’s still the matter of whether bringing Tony Stark back is a good move from a story perspective. The character’s death in “Avengers: Endgame” was a powerful moment, and bringing him back for the sake of fan service could come across as cheap. Then again, Hugh Jackman is back in his famous Marvel role in “Deadpool & Wolverine” after the mutant met a heartbreaking end in “Logan.” So truly, nothing is sacred.

There has been ample speculation that an Iron Man comeback is imminent within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rumors suggest Marvel wants to resurrect Iron Man and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) for a future Avengers movie, and with the Multiverse now at play, that could be feasible. It’s possible they wouldn’t be playing the versions from the Infinity Saga, but instead variants from other realities. It would basically be Marvel’s way of having its cake and eating it too. These major stars appear in a milestone Avengers flick while keeping their characters’ emotional deaths intact. 

Downey can pretty much do whatever he wants these days. From starring in Oscar-worthy fare to hosting his own reality show with “Downey’s Dream Cars,” the world is his oyster. If he wants to return as Tony Stark and Marvel has a part for him, there’s really nothing stopping an MCU Iron Man comeback.
