It took a little while longer than fans may have hoped but Robert Downey Jr has confirmed that he will be appearing in both ‘The Avenger 2’ and ‘The Avengers 3’.
There was some question of whether or not Marvel would be able to secure Robert Downey Jr for the two films, but the actor has officially signed on to both of the Disney/Marvel projects. Marvel officially announced the news on their website stating:
“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.
Downey, Jr.’s last two Marvel films, 2012’s “Marvel’s The Avengers” and this year’s “Iron Man 3,” rank as two of the top five grossing films of all time, collectively earning over $2.7 billion worldwide to date.”
“Marvel’s The Avengers 2” is being written and directed by Joss Whedon. Featuring favorites from the first Avengers film and new Marvel characters never before seen on the big screen, “Marvel’s The Avengers 2” is slated to begin production in March 2014 and open in theaters May 1, 2015.
