Robert Downey Jr talks ‘Iron Man 4’ ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’ and appearing on ‘SHIELD’

Robert Downey Jr. previewed some of his other projects while promoting his new film, The Judge. From Iron Man 4 to returning for another Sherlock Holmes film and playing Perry Mason, the Chaplin star covered a lot of ground in some new interviews.

iron-man-3-robert-downey-jr“I know there’s going to be more Marvel movies, and they have big ideas of how to do it best. We’re in the middle of negotiations, blah blah blah., he said on The Ellen Show to returning for another Iron Man film.

Ellen pressed further by asking, “So yes?”, to which Downey Jr. replied “Okay, yes.”  Marvel Studios has yet to confirm that Iron Man 4 is on its schedule.

During his reddit AMA, Downey joked about the notion of Mel Gibson directing the film, but added a bit of clarity on the prospect of the film itself: “It was an offhanded remark to a journalist and friend. I have other projects in mind for Mel and I – sooner than later the Marvel Roster will be made public and all questions will be answered.

In the meantime, is it possible Downey Jr. could pop up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “Nothing is impossible. But there might be a fair amount of red tape involved in something like that. I love Clark Gregg, and am pleased the show is doing so well.

Downey also made mention of Avengers: Age of Ultron in discussing how Joss Whedon reacted to the notion of topping the Avengers post-credits scene.

“I remember shooting that shawarma post-credit scene, and having just finished Avengers: Age of Ultron, wondered how we’d beat it. Joss says “The way to win is to not try.”

With regards to Sherlock Holmes 3, the answer appears to remain the same one it’s been for the past couple of years:

“Yes, we have a Sherlock 3 in development. We want it to be the best of the series, so that’s a pretty tall order. Also, Perry Mason is a property I’m looking forward to developing further, going back to the 1931 book series…similarly to what we did with the first 2 Sherlocks, mining the original material for things that are “new.”

Downey also elaborated on the Perry Mason project when someone asked him if he’d considering delving back into noir territory after the brilliant Kiss Kiss Bang Bang: “The Perry Mason project we’re developing is kind of a pre-”Chinatown” gumshoe thriller with some courtroom stakes, and action sequences.”

The Judge opens October 10, 2014 while Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to theaters on May 1, 2015.
