Whedon Has No Intention Of Making Avengers 2 Without Robert Downey Jr.

IRON MAN 3I doubt this is really going to matter at all, but a new Joss Whedon interview with The Daily Beast has made his position on Robert Downey Jr, and his apparently ongoing contract negotiations, abundantly clear:

I have no intention of making Avengers 2 without him, nor do I think I’ll be called upon to do that. I don’t think it’s in my interest, Marvel’s interest, or his interest, and I think everything will be fine. But I know that this is Hollywood and you roll with things. You have to be ready for the unexpected.

Okay, maybe that got less clear as it went on. Scratch “abundantly.”

Having no intention to make the film without Downey isn’t the same as having the intention to bail if he fails to sign up, but they do still come across as strong words.

What I take away from this is that Downey still doesn’t seem to have struck up a deal. I’m starting to feel like I’m sitting in the dentist’s waiting room…

This is the first of two Joss Whedon stories I’m publishing more or less back-to-back. They’re each a different talking point. Check out the other, and join in on the forum…
