Robert Downey Jr signs up for Avengers sequels

Jun 20 2013, 2:28pm CDT | by

Robert Downey Jr. has signed up for two more 'Avengers' movies.

While the actor's role in the sequels were in doubt as Marvel were reportedly unwilling to agree to his pay demands, Robert and the studio have come to an agreement which will see him reprise the role of Tony Stark/Iron Man in 'Marvel's The Avengers 2' and 'Marvel's The Avengers 3', according to Marvel.com.

A statement on the website said: "'I am Iron Man.'

"Tony Stark's famous closing line to the very first 'Iron Man' film takes on new life today as Marvel is pleased to announce the signing of Robert Downey, Jr. to reprise the role of the 'billionaire, genius, playboy, philanthropist'.

"Under the two-picture agreement, Downey will star as Tony Stark/Iron Man in 'Marvel's The Avengers 2' and 'Marvel's The Avengers 3' Downey is represented at CAA by Bryan Lourd, Jim Toth and Matt Leaf and by his attorneys Tom Hansen and Stewart Brookman of the firm Hansen Jacobson."

The sequel will start production on March 2014 and is being written and directed Joss Whedon.

And if you’re wondering how to tell the two apart in the gallery, one has people sitting there with no clue what they’re doing because the director quit and they still haven’t seen a script yet while the other has ...

Jeff Bridges' Best AMA Answers: On 'The Big Lebowski,' 'Iron Man,' Bagels and Love

Jul 25 2014 2:42pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Reddit AMAs with actors can be a mixed bag: The quick-response format can reveal some satisfying answers, but leave you desperate for a follow-up answer that never comes. And sometimes the subject does not play ball at all, failing to give even the illusion of caring. (Witness the great Woody Harrelson AMA debacle of 2012.) But it is rare that you get a session as rewarding as yesterday’s back and forth with Jeff Bridges, there to promote his upcoming adaptation of the ...
