Marvel Reports that Robert Downey Jr. Will Not Return to the MCU

It would seem that it is certain that Robert Downey Jr. won’t make another appearance in a Marvel film in the future. Despite the fact that Tony Stark lost his heroic battle in Avengers: Endgame, many people had hoped that he may somehow make a comeback in upcoming films. Deaths no longer have to have any significance because Marvel has been experimenting more and more with the multiverse theory.

Moving Forward

Marvel executive Stephen Broussard indicated that Phase Five will put a lot more of an emphasis on fresh characters that were initially introduced in Phase Four in an interview with io9 (via Gizmodo). That also entails permanently saying goodbye to certain long-time favorites, most notably Iron Man. “Well, I think one of the meta-narratives of Phase Four was about new characters. It was about new people stepping into mantles.” is what he had to say regarding the matter.

A Huge Addition

Harrison Ford is reportedly joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so this news is timely. The 80-year-old star, who has starred in some of the greatest movie franchises ever, including Star Wars and Indiana Jones, will reportedly have some pretty big shoes to fill. Hot Mic with John Rocha and Jeff Snider reported that Harrison will reportedly take over for William Hurt, who passed away in March at the age of 71, in the Marvel films as General Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross.

Now, Florence Pugh and Sebastian Stan will star in a standalone Thunderbolts film. A crew of supervillains are enlisted to carry out government objectives, according to the synopsis. A fan page claims that the release date is scheduled for July 26, 2024. Ford has since inked a contract with Marvel, and, according to journalist Sneider, he will star in the next Captain America: New World Order.
