Godfather of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Robert Downey Jr. confirmed his presence in the upcoming Avengers 4 with a behind the scenes picture from the set.
While it was assumed Iron Man would return for the sequel, contracts in the MCU have been tough to pin down. Plus the rumors swirling about impending deaths and the next two Avengers films being a reboot of sorts for the MCU, it is nice to have the man behind the suit confirm he will, in fact, be appearing.

Downey previously extended his Marvel contract to appear in Captain America: Civil War and last appeared in this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Thor has a rich group of supporting characters that have either gone on adventures with him or faced him on the battlefield.
