Jon Favreau Says Marvel’s Not Planning An ‘Iron Man 4’ Anytime Soon

While promoting his upcoming film Spider-Man: Far From Home, Happy Hogan actor and Iron Man Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau revealed that he and Marvel Studios have not had discussions for an Iron Man 4. 

Jon Favreau revealed such information during a set visit for the new Spider-Man film:

“We haven’t talked about 4. I’ve talked to Kevin about it to see what they’re up to, but we definitely love working together and we love these characters. So we talk about what it would be, and we always joke about the ‘Freak’ storyline, which is a Happy Hogan storyline when he turns into a Hulk-like character. We joke about that, though, no plans as of yet.”

Given how Avengers: Endgame definitively sends off Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, it isn’t surprising that Marvel Studios and Jon Favreau seem ready to give the Iron Man title a rest after over a decade of dominating the big screen. If Iron Man were to return for a fourth outing, it is likely that someone new will have to take on the mantle that Tony leaves behind to carry on his legacy.

The newest trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home teases that Peter Parker (Tom Holland) feels that he should be the next Iron Man in a post-Endgame world, but given that he should focus more on being a Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, perhaps someone else will don the Iron Man suit. Perhaps Tony’s old friend Harley Keener (Ty Simpkins) from Iron Man 3 is a good candidate.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion King stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.

The Lion King will be released in theaters on July 19, 2019.
