Robert Downey Jr. has officially given life to Marvel fanboys and fangirls who were heartbroken when he seemed to put the kibosh on an Iron Man 4 movie. According to sources, he stopped by the Ellen show where, after some prodding on her part, he admitted that he was in negotiations for a fourth Iron Man movie.
“I know there’s going to be a bunch more Marvel movies,” he said. “And they have big ideas of how to do it best and we’re in the middle of negotiation…” Ellen quickly prompted, “So, yes?” leading Downey to reply “Okay, yes!”
Some time ago, RDJ voiced his wishes to have
racist fuckhole Mel “Pack of N-words” Gibson direct an Iron Man sequel in order for him to participate. Mind you, this was before he confirmed negotiations. Anyway, this is where I tell him to have a seat. People don’t fuck with Mel Gibson because he’s a jackass. His presence certainly didn’t help The Expendables 3, which bombed, at all. You can’t force people to work with a guy who might go off on a racist tirade at any moment. It’s also bad for Marvel’s brand.
Anyway, let’s see what happens. I knew it was about the money game all along. Who the hell walks away from a sure thing?
