Iron Man No More – Gwyneth Paltrow Says There Won’t Be A Part Four

My good friend Kevin McCarthy sat down to speak with the stars of Iron Man 3 at the US junket last weekend, and while there’s a lot of highpoints in his video package – including an awkward bit about Gwyneth Paltrow‘s boobs and Robert Downey Jr. admitting to nerd tears – there’s also a very surprising bit of news.

Paltrow dropped the bombshell pretty nonchalantly:

I don’t think there’s going to be [an Iron Man 4]. I think we’re done with Iron Man.

Check it out for yourself in the video at the foot of this page to see just how sincere she’s being. It seems clear to me that she really believes this.

There has been an assumption that Downey will sign on for more Marvel movies, but we don’t know – yet – that he has done. It’s possible that he’s officially declined Iron Man sequels already, and that Paltrow knows about this. In this case, she may get a few frowns for leaking the info, and denials would be likely to follow.

And while it seems a little cynical to think this, it’s also a possibility that Paltrow’s comments are just her lending a hand in the ongoing – and pretty public – negotiations between the actor and studio.

Seeing as the next Avengers already has a script draft completed, and apparently without Downey having signed, perhaps Whedon and Marvel decided not to gamble and left Tony Stark out of the frame for once. Perhaps they really are done with the character – for now, at least – and don’t want to say so, for whatever reason, while Iron Man 3 is on release.

The US release is coming next week but Iron Man 3 is in UK cinemas now. As I was saying, I do think it’s a fitting conclusion to the big-screen Tony Stark story.

Now, here’s Kevin’s video, as hosted by Geek Nation. Get ready to hear the words “nerd tears” an awful lot…
