I'm sure he isn't the only person getting tired of Iron Man. wink.gif

The problem is that Tony Stark *IS* RDJ. He really made this character his own by adding his own wit and humor. It will be very hard for someone else to fill these shoes. Charming, sometimes arrogant, self-aware, funny, flawed, very smart... This is not just Tony Stark, it's RDJ too. For now I think he just said it to tease Marvel and Disney, as his contract ends with Iron Man 3...Time to negociate the new one! wink.gif ...Having said that, it's understandable that he doesn't want to be associated with this character for the rest of his career. But I'm sure Disney won't let him go that easily, after all he's in large part responsible for the whole Avengers success. We'll see... smile.gif

Yes, I'm a very lucky man. I'm still not happy about North America getting this movie a week later than the rest of the world. We have to hold our review until the day of release. It's ridiculous.

He's not going to let go of this character anytime soon. Trust me on this.

Even if this is his last "Iron Man" film, I'm sure that he's contractually obligated to return for Avengers 2.

Actually, his contract with Marvel ends with this film. It was for four, so Irons 1-3 and Avengers fulfills it.

It's likely though they'll throw enough money to get him back for the Avengers sequel, since they seem committed to it. Any more Iron Mans, though, is probably still up in the air, though I can't imagine it won't be another multi-film deal.

No question Disney will throw a very large pile of $$$ at him.wink.gif
post #73 of 437
I actually want him to soak them for as much as he can. He pretty much made the Avengers.
post #74 of 437
He'll sign a deal. Well, I hope he does. Re-casting will completely kill it for me. it just won't work. But all sides will have to be reasonable.
post #75 of 437
Frankly, I think it's rather difficult to imagine that there hasn't been a deal penned already or at least one in principle, particularly after The Avengers. There's too much identity at stake for Disney and too much dough at stake for RDJ. The thing is how much does RDJ want to continue to be involved and how much cash does he want to command? If he's reasonable then the deal will get done (if not already) no problem because the studio clearly understands the circumstances and still stands to make a boat load of cash. However, Disney does have the option of how they want to tell the story and albeit risky can simply develop an Avengers 2 screenplay that is "Stark-light".

An Avengers story could definitely be written that focuses more on the the other characters with Iron Man making an appearance during the climatic battle sequence. Granted, there is a certain amount of risk to this but IMO there would be greater preservation than injecting a new actor to play Stark. Of course, IMO, the critical factor or factors in making this scenario work would be How are things left story-wise at the end of Iron Man 3? How good is Thor 2? What happens with the Thor storyline? And same two questions for Captain America 2. And I think we all feel a Hulk story with Rufalo would be welcomed.

Don't get me wrong, RDJ is a big part of Iron Man as well as The Avengers. And it is definitely my preference to see him continue at least through the 2nd Avengers movie. But there are alternatives should negotiations prove to be too demanding on his part. And with that in mind, assuming done well like the end of Dark Knight Rises (IMO), I wouldn't have a problem seeing the studio transition to a different direction.

I'd like to see RDJ continue on as Tony Stark for awhile. He's still young enough to sell a superhero and Bobby needs to eat. But I wish he'd leave Sherlock Holmes alone. Never really bought into him as the iconic English detective. Besides, Benedict Cumberbatch owns that character for me for now.
post #77 of 437
If Downey doesn't want to do more Iron Man movies, I'd be fine with him limiting himself to that role in just the Avengers movies every few years. Who knows, it might be more of a treat to see him in the part when he hasn't done a couple of Iron Man movies and Hulk cameo before each Avenger movie.

I hope so

Wow. With quite a few reviews in, up to 93% @ RottenTomatoes.

Of course it will probably drop once it has a US release, but that's pretty impressive.

Finished work, napped, showered, and on my way to see if Robert Downey Jr. and Co. can work movie magic again.

I agree that without Robert Downey Jr. the Iron Man franchise wouldn't work. Although I didn't hate either of Downey's Sherlock Holmes films, they are a pale imitation of both of the TV shows based on a 21st Century Holmes, Sherlock and Elementary.

Downey has always been a great actor, but he breathes so much life and energy into Stark, it takes my breath away. My wife could live without seeing a comic book movie, any comic book movie, ever again. Yet when it comes to Downey, she will be first in line. SHE actually said, "Are we going opening night?" Seriously?!

He owns that character and I hope he signs a deal. but I also think Marvel needs to be smart and not wear out its welcome. They need a good 3 to 4 years breather between now and the next Iron Man film.

You and I are not the only ones who think Downey's presence is vital to the Iron Man franchise. Get a load of what the chief critic for the London Daily Telegraph had to say:
Quote:
At this point, Downey is as important to the franchise as Sean Connery was to Bond: you wouldn’t want to be the producer in charge of finding Iron Man’s George Lazenby.
Read the whole thing, it's fun.

Who’s Who in Iron Man 3: The Arc Reactor Infographic

That's a pretty neat little interactive graphic-thingy on Wired's site that links all the characters in the Iron Man flicks. Give it a shot.
