    Robert Downey Jr Returning for Avengers Sequels

    Hello, your friendly roving Micechat Marvel roving reporter here (not really, of course. I just seem to be the only one catching these online & reporting them.) here with another Marvel update.....

    Downey Jr. Returning for 2 More 'Avengers' Sequels - Yahoo! TV

    Downey Jr. Returning for 2 More 'Avengers' Sequels

    Following the stellar success of Iron Man 3 and The Avengers before it, there has been a lot of nervous anxiety in Hollywood and among the superhero fan audience over whether or not Robert Downey Jr. would return to play Tony Stark/Iron Man again, since his contract with Marvel was up for renegotiation.


    Now, all can rest easy, as Downey Jr. will be back for Marvel’s The Avengers 2 and Marvel’s The Avengers 3. Phew! Marvel announced today on its website that it is "pleased to announce the signing of Robert Downey, Jr. to reprise the role of the 'billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist.' Under the two-picture agreement, Downey will star as Tony Stark/Iron Man in Marvel’s The Avengers 2 and Marvel’s The Avengers 3."


    The site made sure to point out that Downey Jr.'s last two Marvel films, 2012’s Marvel’s The Avengers and Iron Man 3 "rank as two of the top five grossing films of all time, collectively earning over $2.7 billion worldwide to date."


    Marvel’s The Avengers 2, once again being written and directed by Joss Whedon, is slated to begin production in March 2014 and open in theaters May 1, 2015.
    All I can say is Yay, because RDJ is what makes these films watchable and enjoyable.

    RDJr: "OK, Done with the Iron Man suit, let's move on."

    Marvel: "Aw, c'mon, we really want you."

    RDJr: "No, really. No."

    Marvel: "How about this life size model of your house made out of hundred dollar bills?"

    RDJr: "Add in the summer home."

    Marvel: "DONE!"
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    Robert is for Iron Man, the same way Christopher Reeve was for Superman, or Hugh Jackman is for Wolverine. Nobody else could fill his shoes(or suit). I'm glad to see him return for the Avengers sequels.

    I think he'll be back for more than two sequels. It's evident that he loves the role. He's not going to be another Batman of many faces.

    Great news! I never had a doubt he wouldn't return. The money is just too good.
