Robert Downey Jr signs up for Avengers sequels

Jun 20 2013, 2:36pm CDT | by

Robert Downey Jr. has signed up for two more 'Avengers' movies.

While the actor's role in the sequels were in doubt as Marvel were reportedly unwilling to agree to his pay demands, Robert and the studio have come to an agreement which will see him reprise the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in 'Marvel's The Avengers 2' and 'Marvel's The Avengers 3', according to Marvel.com.

A statement on the website said: '''I am Iron Man.'

''Tony Stark's famous closing line to the very first 'Iron Man' film takes on new life today as Marvel is pleased to announce the signing of Robert Downey, Jr. to reprise the role of the 'billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist'.

''Under the two-picture agreement, Downey will star as Tony Stark/Iron Man in 'Marvel's The Avengers 2' and 'Marvel's The Avengers 3' Downey is represented at CAA by Bryan Lourd, Jim Toth and Matt Leaf and by his attorneys Tom Hansen and Stewart Brookman of the firm Hansen Jacobson.''

The sequel will start production on March 2014 and is being written and directed Joss Whedon.

Avengers Line-Up Will Be “Altered” By End of Avengers: Age of Ultron

Oct 27 2014 4:52pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

In the Marvel comic books, The Avengers were an ever-changing group of superheroes where sometimes individuals would come and go to deal with their own personal storylines and return for a huge Avengers adventure. But, there was always an Avengers unit doing something, and that appears to be the model with the cinematic world too. Given what we saw in the Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer, some of our favorite heroe ...

POTD: The One Thing That Never Changes for Tony Stark

Oct 24 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Over the past six years, we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark go through all sorts of crap. He’s been captured and imprisoned, fallen in love, made new superpowered friends, struggled with booze, battled aliens, developed PTSD, removed his arc reactor, and through it all become a slightly better person than he was in the first Iron Man. But some things about the character will never change. He’ll always mouth off the first ch ...

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Trailer Is Ready: When Can We See It?

Oct 24 2014 12:01pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

It if appears that Marvel and DC Comics are going tit for tat in the movie wars of late, you’d be right. As soon as it was announced that Robert Downey Jr. would be in Captain America 3, Warner’s and DC responded and released their full superhero slate through 2020. And it’s one that includes solo movies for Wonder Woman, Aquaman and a Green Lantern reboot. And now merely days after Marvel released the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer, we’ve got news tha ...

The Insane 'Avengers' Prop Marvel Let Robert Downey Jr. Bring Home

Oct 21 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: movies.com

If you were an actor starring in some big, flashy superhero movie, of course you're gonna want to take something home with you--if only to prove to your grandchildren (and great-grandchildren) that you were, like, totally cool back in the day. When it comes to Marvel, though, they don't like props leaving the set. I've personally been on the set of four Marvel movies, and when the taking-home-souve ...

Marvel Gave Robert Downey Jr. the 'A' from Stark Tower in 'Avengers'

Oct 20 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Many lead stars of the big screen have taken mementos from the sets of various films they've worked on. It's a nice token to remember that specific time in your life. Sometimes they steal them, other times they pay for them, but sometimes the production company just decides to give them to the stars. However, we're betting that no one has a movie memento as cool as what Robert Downey Jr. received from the set of The Avengers, courtes ...

Robert Downey Jr. Says CAPTAIN AMERICA 3 Is “Gonna Be Huge” Thus Putting Hugeness Doubts to Rest

Oct 20 2014 3:23pm CDT | Source: Collider

I enjoy Marvel’s constant change-ups with fan expectations.  Immediately following Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was looking like Captain America 3 would be driven by the hunt for Bucky.  That could still be the case in terms of a baseline or prologue, but what Marvel is really going for is setting up a big plot arc with Civil War (a.k.a “Thanos Who?”), and they managed to nab Robert Downey Jr. as a co-lead.  There are plenty of reasons to be excited for the third Capta ...

This week in "Robert Downey Jr. is incredible" news, the actor received a grand-scale gift from Marvel last week: the 30-foot-tall 'A' that was left on the ruins of Stark Enterprises at the end of The Avengers, to signal the coming of the Avengers Tower. RDJ, like many Hollywood actors and actresses, collects set pieces as memoirs from his films. Unlike Ben Affleck, who was told that taking home the Batsuit from Batman v.
