Despite saying that super-hero films are becoming “old,” Robert Downey Jr. is in final negotiations to play Iron Man/Tony Stark in “Captain America 3.”
According to Variety, “The new pact is significant for the Marvel cinematic universe considering the plot will pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities.”
Robert Downey Jr. will portray Iron Man in the film that sees a Civil War storyline straight from the comic books to the big screen, which will link up to the new new phase of superhero movies from Marvel Studios.
Captain America 3 begins production in the Spring of 2015. Downey most recently signed on to make his Iron Man appearance in “The Avengers: Age of Ultron and “The Avengers 3.” “Age of Ultron” will hit theaters May 1, 2015. “Avengers 3” is slated for release in 2018.
