Avengers: Endgame star Robert Downey Jr. seemed open to the possibility of returning as Iron Man.
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame concluded with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man sacrificing himself to defeat Thanos and protect the universe from a second decimation. Of course, many were saddened to see Robert Downey Jr. retire from the role of Iron Man after more than ten years, but the actor noted that all things come to an end when asked about his reaction to the Avengers hero’s fate during an interview with Today:
“You know, now that I’m middle-aged, to be honest, you start looking at the back nine and you go, ‘oh, this is part of the journey. That things end. You know, everyone’s going somewhere.”
While Robert Downey Jr.’s time as Iron Man seems to have come to an end, the actor was asked if he was keeping the door open for a possible Iron Man return down the line. In response, Robert Downey Jr. indicated that he is at least open to idea of playing Iron Man again after Avengers: Endgame:
“I am so pleased just that I wound up where I have. You know, I’m very fortunate. So, I’m not the kind of guy who… I want to try to keep it classy. We’ll see.”
