'Iron Man 4' Movie News: Robert Downey Jr. To Be Replaced With Another Character Or Actor? [VIDEO]

It appears that the rumors of Iron Man 4 ever making its way to the screen might need to be laid to rest at least for a while since Robert Downey, Jr. May not go through with it.
On Saturday, IGN posted a live video with Chris Tilly and Daniel Krupa, the hosts of "The Superhero Show" where they reveal superhero news. The hosts talked about the possibility of a new Iron Man movie after Tilly mentioned a recent interview with Iron Man 3 co-writer Drew Pearce.
It looks like Pearce didn't seem too hopeful about a new movie mainly because there appears to be a good chance that Downey Jr. won't be a part of it.
"I think a lot depends on the character. It was quite interesting interviewing Drew Pearce the other day- the screenwriter of Iron Man 3- he almost had to stop himself," Tilly said. "I said 'Would you direct an Iron Man film in the future and he almost had to stop himself, I felt like he was saying that Downey Jr. doesn't want to do another one in which case he doesn't think there'll be another one or certainly not for a long time."
The question on whether Downey Jr. would star or not came from a fan who wrote to the hosts who asked if the character Iron Man would be replaced by someone else- one potential choice being the Black Panther- or if the character would stay, but the actor would be replaced in the same way James Bond gets replaced with different actors.
