I like Robert Downey Jr. and stuff.
“It’s down to Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios president] and Ike [Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment] and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” Downey said. “When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement.” …
Until his bosses decide he’s too rich for their blood, Downey says he’s happy to hold on to the iron mask. “It’s that thing of: why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?” he says — then adds a caveat. “Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out.”
He shrugs, and until Marvel says otherwise, Downey leaves us with points of ellipses and a grin: “The future is, as usual, uncertain.”
"When EW visited the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, we asked Downey point-blank: Does he want to star in an Iron Man 4?
His answer wasn’t so point-blank. In fact, he starts to sound a little like a Magic 8-Ball as he tries to keep it vague. But the answer we gleaned was: Signs point to yes.”
I would like a drink, please.
Got it. Okay.
“Robert and I go back almost 10 years to the day when we sorta locked eyes across a Whole Foods market and sorta said, ‘We should work together.’ It’s almost been like a romance with Robert, over a period of time. He knows how to push my buttons and I know how to push his, and I think that’s what makes it such a joy. I owe a great deal of thanks to this man who will be gracious enough to say I’ve helped him with his career and comeback, but it’s every bit the opposite.”
Why is no one talking about this? I’m getting excited!
Where will you be watching the world consume me from? Oh, that’s right, a prison cell. I’ll send you a bar of soap.
