Who will be in Iron Man 4?


Back in October, Marvel Studios announced their massive Phase Three line up which includes Avengers: Infinity Part 2 along with the other nine movies. There were rumors that the studio is developing Iron Man 4 for 2019 release however it wasn’t clear if Robert Downy Jr. will be starring in it, but during his interview in The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen asked RDJ if there’s gonna be a Iron Man 4 and RDJ answered:

“I know there’s gonna be a bunch more of Marvel movies and they have big ideas of how to do it best and we are in the middle of negotiation”

then Ellen ask him directly and RDJ said”Yes”, But if you pause for a second and think about his answer, RDJ might only had said “yes” to appease his host because if he wasn’t so sure he could’ve answered “Maybe” or “We’ll see” but then again he answered straight up “YES” but we aren’t sure if he will be in it.


There are also speculations that Ty Simpkins, who portrayed the youngster Harley Keener in Iron Man 3 will be the new protagonist in Iron Man 4(This news hasn’t been confirmed yet by Marvel or Disney at the moment).


During Iron Man 3 director Jon Favreau actually wanted the character to be the main villain of the first Iron Man. Favreau had the Mandarin penciled in as the original film’s main antagonist, but shifted focus to Obadiah Stane once Jeff Bridges took the role. Favreau believed that introducing the Mandarin “seemed too ambitious in the first one,” and thought the more fantastic elements of the character would be better off introduced in a sequel.

The authentic Mandarin was actually talk about but not yet expose in the Marvel-One Shot: All hail the king where Trevor Slattery was placed in Seagate Prison for his involvement with Aldrich Killian’s War. Slattery is a celebrity there, and even has a “butler” He was then interviewed by Jackson Norriss, who is ostensibly creating a documentary about Slattery. During Norriss’ final session with Slattery, Norriss is revealed to be a member of the Ten Rings, and attempts to kill Slattery. Norriss says that the real Mandarin is mad at Slattery for making a mockery of his name.
