Robert Downey Jr. has no idea what he wants. Despite previously rejecting the idea of more Iron Man as something extremely unlikely to happen, Downey has now walked all of that back by giving the purely hypothetical Iron Man 4 a firm vote of confidence. Is this guy trolling? Did he have a genuine change of heart about (even more) profitable sequels? Where can one purchase this suit?
"I feel like I could do one more," Downey said during a recent Nightline special centered on the forthcoming Captain America: Civil War, as spotted by ComicBook.com. Though that's certainly a compelling update for anyone still clamoring for more Iron Man, Marvel's already crowded schedule shows that even Downey's enthusiasm may not necessarily lead to a fourth Iron Man anytime soon.
Downey, however, has a history of faking everyone out about this kind of thing. After previously suggesting to Jimmy Kimmel that his involvement in Spider-Man: Homecoming may not happen, news broke that he had just inked a deal to make an appearance in the reboot.
