Robert Downey Jr returns as Iron Man?

Many fans were upset when Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr died at the end of Avengers: Endgame.

After playing it for a decade, the actor has since explained why he agreed to kill off his beloved character.

But there are rumours that he might reprise his role as Iron Man for one last time in the upcoming Black Widow movie. Disney hasn’t commented on this so it still remains a speculation.

Downey has been outspoken against portraying the genius billionaire, playboy and philanthropist Tony Stark after the last Avengers film.

“I had an incredible ten-year run that was creatively satisfying,” he said in July.

“It was very, very, very hard work and I dug very deep, but I have not been forced to explore the new frontier of what is my creative and personal life after this.”

“First thing you learn in theater arts. Aesthetic distance. I am not in this play I’m doing. I’m not a character in The Fantasticks. I’m not Will from Oklahoma. Aesthetic distance. It’s job one. I’m not my work. I’m not what I did with that studio. I’m not that period of time that I spent playing this character.”

“And it sucks because the kid in all of us wants to be like, ‘No! It’s always gonna be summer camp and we’re all holding hands and singing kumbaya. Isn’t it?’ It’s like, ‘no! Snap out of it.’” To check if the rumours are true, wait until Black Widow hits the theatres on May 1, 2020.
