I've long had a sneaking suspicion that Robert Downey Jr and Tony Stark are basically the same person. So naturally, I was disappointed when an interview with GQ revealed that Robert Downey Jr that his days as Tony Stark might be nearing an end. But some new info from Marvel head Kevin Feige is telling a different tale. Kevin Feige spoke with the Huffington Post about his "Iron Man" plans and when asked about whether or not a new actor could ever step into RDJ's shoes, he said that although he sees Tony Stark as a James Bond character who could be reprised by different actors, he hopes to bring RDJ back as Iron Man a few more times. He went on to say he thinks Tony Stark is an interesting enough and rich enough character that we might be seeing him as main movie character for the next 30 years, and quote, "It certainly is our plan to continue to have Robert Downey in the persona of Tony Stark for many, many years to come." RDJ is obviously very valuable to the franchise and it sounds like the studio want him around to play Tony Stark as long as he'll be willing to do it. On a recent interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, RDJ mentioned that he's had a long contract and now they're going to renegotiate but no word on how that's going or when that will be finalized. Would you want to see Tony Stark played by any other actor? I'm hoping not, but leave a comment and tell us what you think! I'm Erin Darling, thanks for watching Clevver Movies!
