Although it has been a dream for fans of Iron Man to see Robert Downey Jr. continue his journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some way, the veteran actor has recently confirmed his time as a superhero has come to an end.

Robert Downey Jr. Confirms His Time At Marvel Is Officially Over

Without a doubt, 2019 was an intense year for Marvel fans. On April 25 that year, Avengers: Endgame, the climax of the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe finally reached the theaters.

In this film, we had to say goodbye to several of the original Avengers, such as Black Widow, Captain America, and Iron Man. The latter was sent off with honors, closing his story with a funeral in which almost no character from the MCU was missing and gave the perfect closure to Robert Downey Jr's character.

But fans didn't give up hope of seeing him again somehow in some future MCU movie or series. However, Robert Downey Jr. has been blunt on the SmartLess podcast. On the podcast, Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, and Sean Hayes asked him how he can balance family life with his work at Marvel and he just said, "It's all over. "

It was something to be expected, and it is probably the best decision for a character who has had such a long journey and such a special farewell. But never say never…The greatest possibility of a comeback is in the Disney + animated series 'Marvel's What If…?' in which we will be shown alternative realities of events in the MCU and that has confirmed a large part of the cast of Marvel films to give voice to their characters ... but we do not know anything about Robert Downey Jr. yet. The series will premiere next year.

After Marvel, What's Next For Robert Downey Jr.?

The actor at the moment has a fairly empty schedule. Right now he only has the premiere of 'All-Star Weekend', directed by Jamie Foxx, and at some point, he should be shooting 'Sherlock Holmes 3'. His next appearance within the MCU might very well be 'Black Widow', which premieres on October 30 and of which there were rumors of a cameo by Tony Stark.

However, despite the fact that Robert Downey Jr. may still make cameo appearances in future MCU projects, it looks like the actor will no longer be starring in any of the films.
