Robert Downey Jr. says he’s “surprisingly open to the idea” of returning to play IRON MAN in the MCU

Five years have passed since then Robert Downey Junior. ended his reign as Tony Star/Iron Man in the MCU. For over a decade, we got to see the character’s arc unfold, where he fought bad guys, made lifelong friends, had a family, and ultimately sacrificed himself for the fate of the world.

His death was felt deeply by fans, and while some said a return would detract from the ending of his story, there are rumors that Marvel boss Kevin Feige may turn to the original Avengers cast in the coming stages to give fans a great meeting.

Tony Stark and Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow would likely have variants due to their deaths on Earth-616.

When asked by his friend and fellow actor Jodie Foster in an interview with Variety Actors on Actors how he felt about returning to the role, RDJ explained:

“It’s just crazy in my DNA. He’s probably the most similar character to me that he’s ever played, even though he’s a lot cooler than me. I became surprisingly open to the idea.”

He went on to joke that he still seems good enough to do it, and paid the same compliment to Foster, saying:

“Between Nyad and [True Detective: Night Country] and, for me, Oppenheimer and then Sympathizer, it’s really crazy because we’re pretty good. I was actually looking at the photos we were taking, making sure, “Do we still look okay?” I say, ‘We’re doing pretty good.'”

They both look amazing! Downey and Foster are two of the best actors around and I love the projects they star in. We don’t know for sure if RDJ will return to the MCU, but I’d be happy to see him again. What do you think? What, it will probably show up Deadpool and Wolverine.
