Nearly a decade ago, Iron Man hit theaters, Tony Stark stood behind the lectern during a press conference at the end of the film and said the eternal words, “I am Iron Man.”

This kickstarted the Marvel Cinematic Universe — a world that continues to unravel to this very day. With Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 on the horizon, we are reaching the oft-rumored and oft-feared day that the likes of Thor, Cap, and Stark could meet their end. So with that day nearing, it’s only fitting that we’d wonder what Robert Downey Jr. would do once he was done with the MCU.

“You know what, I’ve learned a lot from the missus. You know how what or how you’re gonna end until it is. That takes a lot of the edge off. She’s learned how to be like, ‘You won’t know until you’re there so you’re wasting your time on that equation. That’s not on the test.'”

Um…okay, what? So does that mean that he has currently no idea what the future holds for his character, or whether or not he’d be up to renew it when the time comes?

“I could project all kinds of stuff. I could get into the black dog. Whatever you want. Or I could stay, spiking it in the end zone until I have to be carried off. I’m looking forward to whatever resolution is in the cards.”

Okay, then. Sounds like we won’t be getting a direct answer from Downey anytime soon. Considering he’s the most senior cast member in the entire franchise, it makes sense that he’d be this much of a pro at dodging the question.

Do you think the end is approaching for Stark? Sound off down below!
