Yesterday, Robert Downey Jr. made an appearance on ‘The Ellen Show’ to promote his new film The Judge, and told the host that an Iron Man 4 is in the works.
“We’re in the middle of negotiations,” he told the daytime show host. “Ok, yes.”
The media went into a flurry with speculation and reports about the new film.
However, we must have gotten a bit ahead of ourselves, because not long after, we were hit with some bad news.
The actor appeared on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ saying something completely different.
“No there’s no script for Iron Man 4, ” Downey said. “But they do have a plan and I think they’re going to announce it. They’re secretive about it.” He continues to dodge the question a bit, but later, when Letterman asks him directly if there will be another Iron Man film, he says, “No. But there will be other stuff [with Marvel].”
So will the film happen? Who knows. Downey is an exceptional actor—maybe he has been messing with us this whole time.
