Marvel's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is nearing its premiere next year and news about the cast is spreading all over the web. The latest scoop is about Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., and the possible solo franchises for his fellow 'Avengers' co-stars.
Downey Jr. recently had an interview with Variety and said that he does not see any possibility for an 'Iron Man 4' production in the near future.
"There isn't one in the pipe," said Downey Jr., "No, there's no plan for a fourth 'Iron Man.'"
In a different interview, he shared that he would like to see standalone Marvel films for his fellow superheroes, like Hulk and Hawkeye.
"The funny thing is honestly at this point everyone deserves a franchise. I think Jeremy Renner is - when folks see the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' he's just a rock star, a bad***. And [Mark] Ruffalo is pumped," said Downey told USA Today.
He went on to say, "He [Ruffalo] does great (work). I'd like to hear them talk even more seriously about a 'Hulk' franchise, because that's been one of the toughest ones to get right. But I'm sure that my parent company is feeling expansive and bold after the summer they've had."
Downey Jr. also said that the female roles are becoming more interesting, much like Gwyneth Paltrow's role in 'Iron Man' and how it became more substantial during the subsequent films.
Downey Jr. also mentioned that having a Black Widow movie would be interesting and said, "Doesn't Scarlett deserve a break?"
'Avengers: Age of Ultron' will hit the big screen on May 1, 2015.
