Robert Downey Jr is back as Tony Stark!
Most of the MCU characters are expected to feature in some shape or form, but with Infinity War promising to bring about the death of a hero or two, fans have been furiously speculating as to who’s going to make it out alive and who won’t. Downey Jr. has revealed a lot by posting a picture on Instagram (below) yesterday showcasing his chair (named after his character) along with three others, Scott Lang, Natasha Romanoff, and Steve Rogers, thus confirming his return as well as the return of Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans. What’s more, the photo also expressly confirms Paul Rudd’s addition, making Avengers 4 his first Avengers movie (he and Evangeline Lilly aren’t confirmed to appear in Avengers: Infinity War).
The news comes after it was announced by IMDB that Iron Man 3 actor Ty Simpkins would be joining the fourth Avengers installment, with details surrounding his involvement remaining sparse for the moment. Speculation at the time suggested Simpkins was being brought back by Marvel to mourn the death of Stark who served as a mentor for his character, Harley Keener. And with the Russo brothers having previously teased potential deaths, something a casting call has seemingly confirmed, that speculation could very well prove to be true, however, it’s also entirely possible Stark may simply retire and pass the mantle on to someone else. For now, we can at least celebrate knowing Downey Jr. will don the Iron Man suit for at least two more Avengers films.
Downey Jr. will be appearing next in Avengers: Infinity War. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Danai Gurira and Josh Brolin.
Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters on May 4, 2018. The untitled fourth Avengers film will be released on May 3, 2019.
