It’s been reported that talks between Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios have been put on hold because Downey Jr. demanded too much money.
There has been talk that Robert Downey Jr. might end up returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
However, it’s now being suggested the two sides haven’t been able to reach an agreement.
Why, you ask? It’s being reported by We Got This Covered that Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios weren’t able to agree on how much money he should get to return.
However, according to WGTC’s source, this doesn’t mean the talks between Marvel and Downey Jr. are over.
They’ve just been put on hold, which means we still might get to see him return as Iron Man, a.k.a. Tony Stark.
That said, there are rumours that the actor might appear in Black Widow.
The Black Widow movie is going to feature Scarlett Johansson as the lead.
Will Robert Downey Jr. return to the MCU?
It could see Tony Stark make a cameo because the movie takes place before the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
Personally, I think it’s about time we move away from Robert Downey Jr. and the MCU of old.
Marvel Studios needs to focus on bringing in new talent in order to keep things fresh, interesting and relevant.
That’s what they doing with the likes of Florence Pugh being brought into the MCU.
What do you think of this news? Would you like to see Robert Downey Jr. return to the MCU as Tony Stark?
