It may seem crazy but is one of Marvel's biggest stars looking to lessen his load at the studio juggernaut and help to create a brand new franchise built on a video game? Crazy, but it could be where this 'Iron Man' star is headed.
The Iron Man franchise not only started the current Marvel brand but also was its most consistent big player due to the popularity of star Robert Downey Jr. and the anti-hero that everyone wanted to root for. But the star is now saying that the standalone movies have hit the end of the road.
While Mark Ruffalo has been well-received in the role of Bruce Banner/Hulk since taking over for Edward Norton in 'The Avengers,' but the actor has yet to earn his own standalone movie and is set to reprise the role again the movie's sequel. But could a team-up happen to possibly help Hulk gain a movie of his own?
While Marvel has always teased the possibility of giving Black Widow her own movie, the actual thing has yet to happen. Even with directors like Neil Marshall throwing his name in the ring to direct, it seems like Marvel may still be waiting. But now one of their biggest stars is advocating for a solo movie for the heroine.
While it is sometimes hard to separate the personalities of Robert Downey Jr. and his alter-ego Tony Stark, it seems like the star can have humbling moments and admit that his work isn't the best out there right now.
While the Iron Man films have become one of Marvel's staple franchises, a changing field and fans shown interest in other properties could shift the paradigm to merging franchising rather than just rehashing old standalone movies.
The 39th Toronto International Film Festival will feature a host of Hollywood favorites when it opens next month, with actors including Robert Downey Jr. and Al Pacino expected to attend.
With the massive popularity and money coming from the brand, it was tough to see star Robert Downey Jr. walking away from Iron Man anytime soon. But could the wait for the next standalone featuring the hero be a relatively long one?
Despite rumors that Robert Downey Jr. was done with the Iron Man franchise, the actor is now saying he's open to staying with the role of Tony Stark.
There is a whole generation of moviegoers who only know Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and as a supreme movie star.

With talk of a smaller role for Iron Man in the new Avengers film and actor Robert Downey Jr.'s personal issues, a new Iron Man 4 film is looking less likely by the day.
Iron Man 4 is looking less and less likely, at least with Robert Downey, Jr. as the title character. After saying he might be getting too old for to play Tony Stark, now it seems likely his role may have been reduced in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Rumors have been going viral that Robert Downey, Jr. will be done with the 'Iron Man' franchise before 'Iron Man 4' can even be made. Although Downey, Jr. hasn't confirmed giving up the suit, could the iconic actor really be done with Tony Stark?
Could 'Iron Man' have been made without Robert Downey, Jr.? Although fans can hardly imagine 'Iron Man' without the actor, director Jon Favreau has recently revealed that he had to fight for Downey, Jr. to get the role.
'Iron Man' fans may have to wait even longer for the next installment of the film.
Robert Downey Jr. posted a photo with a teaser for his latest role in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' which left some speculation if he'll be reprising that same role again.

Rumors are continuing to circulate on who is set to star in 'Iron Man 4' if Robert Downey, Jr. doesn't come back, assuming the movie even gets made at all.
The possibility of 'Iron Man 4' to ever take place seems unclear the moment although after a recent rumor that another actor or character could replace Robert Downey, Jr., it ooks like that character could be Ultron, the villain.
It's been recently speculated that if another 'Iron Man' film were to take place, then Robert Downey, Jr. could be replaced with another actor or character; now it appears that there might be a theory on who the character would be for the replacement- Black Widow.
