IRON MAN 4: IronMan released its first part in 2008 based on one of the Marvel comics’ characters of the same name. We saw Robert Downey Jr play the role for the longest time and kept on wanting more. it became one of the most financially successful films of all time. After 22 movies, we saw all of our favorite superheroes in one film (Avengers: Endgame) which became the biggest finale of any superhero film ever made.
Iron-Man started as a franchise and at the time, Robert Dawney Jr was struggling with his career. Although the studios were far from handing over the franchise, still Downey managed to make Tony Stark his own, and studios quickly got IronMan 4 to the table. This is exactly when Avengers blew up and Stark was the base character of the Avengers. From there on, Dawney reprised his roles and appeared in different Marvel movies.
Will there be a Iron Man 4 (release date)? When will it premeire?
As much as we would like to have it back, Marvels announced that there won’t be a new part of IronMan. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely said that some things have to end, otherwise, it loses the meaning. And, that is true. They made sure to give a proper ending to an era we grew up watching. However, fans really wanted to see another movie led by Dawney, but sadly it had come to an end.
Avengers came up with a two-part movie to give an end to the character. When Avengers Infinity war came out audience had hoped that maybe in the second part the superheroes will win and make it to the other side. However, in Avengers End game we saw Tony Stark sacrificing himself for the betterment of mankind.
The studio is already on verge of making four films each year starting 2021. Marvel had to think longterm or else it would have risked alienating the audience. Markus said if Tony would have made it to the other side you would probably end up thinking it is one of those many films. It might have seemed unrealistic. (check: Sex Education Season 3.)
Who will be the new Tony Stark aka Iron Man after Robert Downey Jr?
MCU is planning on making numerous films in the coming years. It is hard to say if we will see Dawney again or not. However, fans are hoping that there might be some possibility and they will see him again with a suit on. It is also said that Dawney will be the voice of Tony Stark in a Disney+ show’s episode.
However, as of now, it is unlikely for Downey to make a proper return in MCU. We can surely hope that he comes back to Marvels but chances of that happening are slim at the moment. (check: The Matrix 4 Release Date, Cast, Title, Trailer, Plot: Will Keanu Reeves Return? Everything To Know.)
As per some reports, Tony Stark will be featured in the next movie of MCU – Black Widow. It won’t probably be a full return. As you know, this is comic book movies, so anything is possible. Maybe when Tony snapped, he somehow saved himself? Maybe, he will be an alternate version of himself from the multiverse?
