Iron Man 4 Rumors Swirl As Some Say It's Not Happening at All, With Others Claiming Robert Downey Jr Will Be Dropped

Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr.) is one of the most-loved characters in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. That said, many are wondering if "Iron Man 4" is happening. Well, it does not seem like it.

In 2014, Marvel Comics unveiled its future plans on its cinematic universe. In its list, all the movies from 2015 up to 2019 are all lined up. "Guardians of the Galaxy" (which is slated to premiere next month), "Thor: Ragnarok" (which is set to debut on July), "Black Panther" (November), "Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1" (May, 2018), "Captain Marvel" (July, 2018),"Inhumans" (November 2018) and "Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2" (May, 2019) are all that is left on the list. Yet, Marvel did not mention any "Iron Man" film.

Will "Iron Man" ever return for another sequel? That is still unknown, and details are scarce.

Fans should be worried about Downey's recent comments on the possibility of an "Iron Man" sequel. In an interview with USA Today, he admitted that a fourth "Iron Man" film is unlikely to happen. He still thinks it is a good idea, though.

Speculation also suggests that "Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1" will conclude Iron Man's story. In spite of that, there are opposing rumors that claim that an Iron Man 4 movie is a dead cert. as the character is simply one of the most popular among Marvel fans, and that should all but guarantee that somewhere down the line there will be at least one more Iron Man movie to bring a clean conclusion to the character.

Some reports even suggest that the upcoming film is slated to hit the big screens some time in 2019.

However, if other rumors are to be believed then Downey may not portray the much-loved character anymore. "Iron Man 4" will require more action stunts; hence, rumors say that Downey will be replaced by Ty Simpkins. But again, Marvel is yet to comment on this, and it would be quite a shocking move if it were decided to drop Downey Jr from the role given just how popular he has been in the first three movies, as well as the Avengers series.
