Kevin Feige Says “Iron Man Is A Big Part Of The Avengers 2”

IRON MAN 3Iron Man 3 is now on general release in North America and I expect that there will be those reading this story who caught a midnight screening. I certainly hope it’s going down as well over there as it is over here in the UK.

On the occasion of this big release, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige shared a call with Superhero Hype.

Now, Robert Downey Jr. is still to negotiate a new contract to appear in any more movies for Marvel, but plans are certainly pressing ahead as though the parties will be able to make an agreement. Feige said:

Currently, as you may imagine, Iron Man is a big part of Avengers 2 and that’s what we’re focusing on and what Joss [Whedon] is focusing on. So where we go after that remains to be seen, but certainly, Avengers 2 being the next appearance, the next storyline for Iron Man.

Do I think there will be another Iron Man movie? Of course I do. Who will be in that movie and who will be a part of that movie? Who knows? And how far down the line will it be? Will it be right after Avengers 2, will it be a few years after Avengers 2? Who knows?

That would seem to be a very candid assessment of the state of business.

Though there’s no pay-off at the end of Iron Man 3 that would preclude the return of Tony Stark, and the credit roll even ends with a promise that he will return, the film does leave the character in an entirely new place. It’s a more subtle piece of set-up for an Avengers sequel than the tease of an infinity gem or a shadowy intergalactic overlord, but there’s definitely some threads here that Whedon will have to weave into his tapestry.

While we’re here, I want to flag something else up. The Superhero Hype interview was carried out by Ed Douglas. I’ve never met Ed, and I don’t think we’ve ever exchanged more than a couple of tweets, and those were hardly idle or just social, but I do know that he’s unfortunately having to fight leukemia right now, that he has no health insurance and that there’s ongoing crowdfunding campaign to assist in paying for his treatment.
