Phew! Robert Downey Jr. Returning for ‘The Avengers 2’ and ‘The Avengers 3’
Let out a sigh of relief Iron Man fans. Although it’s still up-in-the-air if he’ll return for another Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr. isn’t done as the millionaire-by-day-superhero-by-night. Downey, Jr. will be returning for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3.
To nobody’s surprise (I’d think), the biggest roadblock involved finances. Marvel and the Downey, Jr. camp were having some issues (to put it nicely) coming up with the right dollar number. It appears those issues have been resolved.
The Avengers 2, which will return Joss Whedon (another sigh of relief) will release May 1, 2015 (start your countdown now) and should start production next March. Less details are known about The Avengers 3, and it’ll probably depend on how they sort out all the different franchises.
No matter how it all comes together, I’m glad they found a way to include the face of the franchise (arguably) in Robert Downey, Jr. Your thoughts?
