Robert Downey Jr. & Chris Evans Talk About Passing on The Mantles

Robert Downey Jr recently spoke with Variety in Toronto for his most recent film The Judge. But of course the questions changed and he was asked about if Marvel was considering another Iron Man film since they have several untitled films yet to be announced through 2020 "There isn’t one in the pipe. No, there’s no plan for a fourth ‘Iron Man.'"When asked if he would allow another play Tony Stark much like Batman or James Bond he laughs off the idea:“I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I’m casting director for Marvel,” People seem to think that because an Iron Man film isn't coming out every several  years that he will cease to exist in the marvel Cinematic Universe. But no one ever said that Robert can't pop up as Tony Stark in future Marvel films in a simple cameo? Now before you think that would go against his final "appearance" clause in his Marvel contract before or after Avengers 3 keep in mind Chris Evans did a cameo in Thor: The Dark World as Captain America and it didn't count on his contract obligations.

Speaking of Chris Evans he was also asked by MTV News if he would allow another to take up the shield of Captain America like Bucky Barns or even Falcon in which he replied
“Who’s handing off the shield? Don’t take my job from me prematurely dude. I’m sure it’ll happen at some point, all good things have to come to an end. But I’m really happy playing the character.”

Robert Downey Jr & Chris Evans cane be seen in next summers Avengers: Age of Ultron
