Robert Downey Jr. Teases His Exit From Marvel


Already four years have passed since Iron Man 3, and since there has been story after story about Robert Downey Jr.'s potential exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Instead he's continued to stick around, after a couple of huge paydays from Marvel, and when he appears in this week's Spider-Man: Homecoming it will be his eighth time suiting up as Iron Man, with at least a couple more to go in Avengers: Infinity War and (presumably) Avengers 4.  

It is starting to look like the end is near for ol' Shellhead, and Downey has some thoughts on his potential exit and how he'd like to go out. He tells  News.com.au...

"It’s this cyclical thing. I could have said when the first ‘Avengers’ came out: ‘It’s never going to get any better than that. Everybody stop’. But to me it’s always about people and opportunities, like the Russos, who I adore. Everyone says to me it’s like a glove that fits so well. I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base. I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven [MCU movies] I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it’s embarrassing.”

I think Iron Man bites it in Infinity War, but what do you think? Watch Iron Man next in Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7th.
