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.

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-souvenirs question inevitably comes up (it always ...

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, courtesy of Ma ...

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 ...

Robert Downey Jr. Took Home the ‘Avengers’ ‘A’ After Asking For It as a Joke

Oct 20 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: slash film

It’s not unheard of for actors to take home souvenirs from their projects — whether by stealing props from the set, buying them from the production company, or receiving them as gifts. But Robert Downey Jr.‘s memento from The Avengers definitely ranks up there in terms of uniqueness. Downey reportedly received the 30-foot-tall “A” from the Stark Tower shot at the end of the 2012 movie, after asking for it as a joke. ...
