Jon Favreau hopes Robert Downey, Jr. suits up in 'Iron Man 4'

According to ComicBook.com on Tuesday, during an interview with Jon Favreau for his new "Chef" movie, he had given his opinion on being hopeful that Robert Downey, Jr. would wear suit for "Iron Man 4." It's up to speculation now that Downey, Jr. has decided on whether or not he'll be moving forward with the Marvel Studios franchise as he's already been in "Iron Man", "Iron Man 2", "Iron Man 3", and Joss Whedon's "The Avengers."

Now with "Avengers: Age of Ultron" on the horizon, there's no telling what is in store for Iron Man's future actor and Favreau did his fair share of directing for "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2." He also had partaken as a character and main muscle Happy Hogan as he makes sure that people don't get too close. He's already been bested by Black Widow in a squared circle fight and joined her on taking on Hammer's guards at his facility. There's no doubt that Hogan has the great skills to be a boxer, on the other hand, he's likely not S.H.I.E.L.D. material. In "Iron Man 3" he is seen severely injured as he enjoys his favorite PBS TV show "Downton Abbey."

Favreau talked briefly about his history in film making such as "Swingers" that didn't require much of a budget as "Chef" where he traveled the United States to real kitchens filming at different cooking venues. Favreau also stated that since he's taken some time off from the Marvel Studio franchise to do his own thing, he finds it rather easier to state that he hopes Downey, Jr. continues on with the Iron Man character.

He's also pretty sure fans would like to see him move forward with it as well. One may stand to think there's no reason he shouldn't continue to be Iron Man. As of now, fans can look forward to seeing Downey, Jr. in Whedon's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" movie coming out on May 1, 2015.
