Iron Man lives again

Robert Downey Jnr in Iron ManMarvel have ended the speculation surrounding Robert Downey Jr.’s future as Iron Man by securing him to a two picture deal. Don’t expect Iron Man 4 however as the star has signed up for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3.

The last two Marvel films Downey Jr has starred in (The Avengers and Iron Man 3) have collectively made over 2.7 billion USD. With The Avengers 2 not even began filming yet, the news echoes Sony announcing two additional The Amazing Spider-Man films to be released (not counting the second one) in 2016 and 2018.

Are the studios getting too ahead of themselves or do you think the superhero genre has enough life in it to take us to the end, or even into the next, decade?

One thought on “Iron Man lives again

  1. Super hero films have and will always be popular, give or take a few flops here and there largely due to studios chasing dollars. With the effects at the studios disposal possibilitys are endless. As well as stand alone single character movies the avengers series gives you more heroes and action for your buck add to that the often hinted at DC / MARVEL combo (will it happen?) and all the other heroes yet to see the big screen i believe there is plenty off superheroe movies to come.
