Gwyneth Paltrow is making the Iron Man III publicity rounds and casually dropped a bombshell about the possibility of future Iron Man movies. Paltrow says:
I don’t think there’s going to be [an Iron Man 4]. I think we’re done with Iron Man.
Watch the video below and let us know how sincere you think she is about it. Could this be a negotiation tactic? Everyone has assumed that Robert Downey Jr. will sign on for more Marvel movies, but we don’t really know that, not for sure. Could he have declined any Iron Man sequels in private, and perhaps Paltrow knows this, but was she supposed to let it out of the bag now? Are quick denials from Downey and producers likely to follow?
Would they recast or leave Iron Man out of future Marvel movies, or at least the next couple of years worth? Downey is so intertwined with the character, much like Christopher Reeves was with Superman, that many fans just can’t imagine another taking on that role.
What do you think? Was this a slip of the tongue, a negotiation tactic, or is this the end?
