Get ready Marvel fans, because an iconic hero is reportedly set to make a comeback in the highly anticipated finale of the Multiverse Saga. According to a Hollywood insider known as “MyTimeToShineHello” on Twitter, it seems that Robert Downey Jr. has already signed on to reprise his role as Iron Man for ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’.
It comes as no surprise that Downey Jr., who portrayed Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), would make an appearance in the upcoming movie. Rumors suggest that ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ aims to unite the most prominent characters from throughout Marvel Studios’ history, and no one better symbolizes the MCU than Downey Jr. as the beloved Iron Man.
Looking to the Future of the Avengers Franchise
‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ serves as the first installment in a two-part finale for Marvel’s Multiverse Saga. This will be followed by ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’, which marks the conclusion of Phase 6 of the Marvel Studios’ lineup. Both films are scheduled to hit theaters in 2025.
The talented Destin Daniel Cretton is set to direct ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’, with Jeff Loveness taking on the writing duties. On the other hand, the writer of ‘Loki’ and ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, Michael Waldron, will pen ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’, although no director has been attached to the project yet.
If the rumors prove true and Robert Downey Jr. returns as Iron Man in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’, we can expect him to play a pivotal role in the film. Fans would undoubtedly prefer to see Downey in the iconic suit rather than the previously rumored Tom Cruise.
‘Secret Wars’ promises to be an epic crossover event, bringing together characters from all corners of the Marvel multiverse. Iron Man’s experience and leadership will undoubtedly be invaluable to the Avengers as they face this extraordinary challenge. While Michael Waldron is set to write the highly anticipated Marvel Studios film ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’, the search for a director is still ongoing.
