Robert Downey Jr. chats about a Tony Stark recast after Avengers 2
February 28, 2013 By Holly Clarkson
During an interview with the Empire Magazine, Robert Downey Jr., known around the world for his role as Tony Stark as Marvel’s Iron Man, confessed his feelings about being recast for future Marvel films that include the character, espcially after Avengers 2. Which means we may see a different actor play Tony in Phase Three.
“Let’s just say that the only thing I ever let go of had claw marks in it. There’s a little bit of soul reclamation going on. I feel that the first time I played Tony, I did it best. Sorry! The affinity with Tony now is: How do you sustain something? I’m not stupid, I like to play ball, I love the company, I love the character, and the business side of things, I’m not too picky about that either.” – Robert Downey Jr.
“[Recasting] would probably be the best thing in the world for me. You know, ego…but sometimes ego just has to be smashed. Let’s see what happens. I take the audience very seriously – I feel bad when I see folks doing movies and the audience is like, ‘Don’t do that anymore.’ I don’t have to overstay my welcome…” – Robert Downey Jr.
“Tony’s going to carry on. ‘Avengers 2′ already has a release date!” – Robert Downey Jr.
