The third film in the "Iron Man" series made Marvel Studios over $1 billion worldwide, yet the studio has been in no hurry to get moving on a fourth film.
This is believed to be due to Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., who has wrapped his work on "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and is only committed to doing one more Marvel film which will almost certainly be the third "Avengers" movie.
Appearing at the Toronto Film Festival this week, Downey Jr. confirms to Variety there are still no plans for another "Iron Man" instalment saying "There isn't one in the pipe. No, there's no plan for a fourth 'Iron Man'."
He was also asked if he'd "let" anyone take over the role to which he said: "I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I'm casting director for Marvel."
