No word yet on a potential fourth Iron Man film, but it doesn't currently seem to be a popular idea with Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. He has, however, signed up to reprise the role in the forthcoming two sequels to last year's blockbuster of blockbusters, The Avengers. It's no wonder - can you imagine the paycheque? Iron Man 3 is sitting at fifth on the all-time worldwide box office chart as I type, and writer / director Joss Whedon recently stated that he wouldn't consider making the films without Downey Jr, which is pretty much the worst negotiating position he could have put Disney in. The Avengers 2 is set for the first weekend of Summer 2015, opening on the 1st of May in both the US and the UK.
