Marvel Offer All The Money And Probably Their Sons For More Downey Stark
Two more Avengers films. That’s how much more of Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark that we can expect.
It’s no exaggeration to suggest that Downey Jr is a huge part of the reason we even got The Avengers in the first place. I don’t know how much money he will end making from this new deal but it would probably be enough to save Greece.
This is actually probably more than we should have expected. Downey seemed satisfied that Iron Man 3 wrapped up Stark’s story (it didn’t) so I expect Stark will appear in The Avengers sequels being hysterical and badass but not as the main thrust of either.
What’s intriguing is what Marvel will do after he departs. It will be 2018 by then, it’s such a long way off and they will have such a huge cast of characters, will they even need to recast Stark? I’m sure if they were desperate enough they could convince him to pop in for half a day and stuff his face into a CGI suit. Time will tell.
