So some good news and possible bad news for Iron Man fans. “Iron Man 3” has earned more than a billion dollars worldwide already. But Robert Downey Jr. was in the middle of negotiations with Disney/Marvel to return as Tony Stark. Now comes news that he has a deal in place that will ensure his return in “The Avengers 2” and “The Avengers 3”. But back before IM3 came out Gwyneth Paltrow said she wasn’t sure there would be another stand alone Iron Man film. This news seems to support that cause as the contract is only for the Avengers sequels, not another Iron Man film. Are you OK with “Iron Man 3” from Shane Black being the send off to Tony’s stand alone films?
