Last night Robert Downey, Jr. completely contradicted a statement he made earlier in the day on Ellen in which he made it sound like an Iron Man 4 movie was indeed going to be made.
Appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman, Downey said, “There’s no plans for an ‘Iron Man 4.’ There’s no script for ‘Iron Man 4,’ but they do have a plan and I think they’re gonna announce it. You know, [Marvel’s] very secretive about it.”
The good news is that he went on to say, “I’m gonna do other stuff with Marvel. I’m still going to be involved with Marvel and there’s gonna be plenty of fun stuff to happen.”
Downey WILL of course be appearing in the next two Avengers films, and as we’ve reported before it still seems like a good bet that Downey is just creating all of this buzz as part of a negotiating ploy to get what he wants before finally committing to one final Iron Man film.
