Even long after he has decided to call it quits as Iron Man, Hollywood star Robert Downey Jr. is forever going to be remembered for playing the Marvel superhero. Robert has been talking about his future playing Iron Man, hinting that he could be ready to quit the franchise.
Downey Jr. told GQ Magazine, "It got me thinking about how big the message from your cosmic sponsor needs to be before you pick it up. How many genre movies can I do? How many follow-ups to a successful follow-up are actually fun?"
He added, "Right now, I don't have a contract to do anything, and I did for the last five years. Fortunately I've been around the block enough - I'm not ill-prepared. And I love change."
Robert continued, "At whatever point I'm done with this, I'm going to have a bit of a crisis, because I probably haven't even fully ingested how much I've enjoyed it, how much it's meant."
Robert Downey Jr. appears on the big screen as Tony Stark aka Iron Man for the fourth time, when the movie Iron Man 3 is released. Iron Man 3 hits the big screen on April 26 in the UK, before then opening on May 3 in the US.
