Currently, Disney is planning 3 Star Wars movies and the actor who started with Iron Man (2008), one of the most profitable franchises of all time, could soon join another popular cinematic universe which has proven very profitable for the company, and could prove to be the same case for the actor as well.

He would have to choose his upcoming roles well since The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle (2020) was not quite successful since it only raised $245 million worldwide on a budget of $175 million. And if in the end Robert Downey signed for Star Wars, it would be a major breakthrough.

A Major Leap for Robert Downey Jr.

According to the latest reports, Disney would create a specific character for Robert Downey Jr. to fit in as well as possible, although it has not yet been revealed which project it will be.
