Robert Downey Jr: No Iron Man 4 plans,
but he’s involved in upcoming Marvel Films
Yesterday on Ellen, Robert Downey Jr. said he and Marvel were in the middle of negotiations for Iron Man 4. However, later that night, he went on The Late Show, and told David Letterman that not only is there no script, but when pressed to give a definitive answer on whether he would do the movie, Downey responded:
“Just between us, no — but I’m going to do other stuff with Marvel. I’m still going to be involved with Marvel and there’s going to be plenty of other fun stuff.”
He also said that Marvel does “have a plan, and I think they’re going to announce — they’re very secretive about it,” which is a statement one could say about Marvel Studios at any point in time. Downey will next be seen as Iron Man in Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens on May 1, 2015 and is contractually obliged to appear in a third Avengers film.
Jeff Goldblum is returning for Independence Day 2!
It might disappoint you that Dr. Ian Malcolm will not be featured in Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming sequel Jurassic World, but don’t take that to mean that Jeff Goldblum is done reprising characters he played back in the 1990s. In fact, it turns out that he may be doing one very soon, as director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin have already approached him about returning as David Levinson in the in-development Independence Day 2.
