DOWNEY DOESN’T HAVE AN IRON-CLAD DEAL YET

Robert Downey Jr. may be hitting the talk-show circuit to promote his new movie The Judge, but the hosts of those shows appear more interested in another film, Iron Man 4. It is after all, the current ruling blockbuster franchise. But there has been no word so far about whether Downey will be donning the Iron Man supersuit for the next installment of the series. When David Letterman asked him about whether he would play the character again in Iron Man 4, Downey hesitated. "They do have a plan, and I think they’re going to announce — they’re very secretive about it," he told Letterman. When Letterman followed up by asking him whether he would play the Marvel character, Downey responded, "Just between us, no — but I’m going to do other stuff with Marvel. I’m still going to be involved with Marvel and there’s going to be plenty of other fun stuff." On another talk show, the daytimer hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, Downey replied "yes" to a question about whether there would be another Iron Man movie but "no" to the question, "Are you going to make another one of those Iron Man movies."
