Don Cheadle And Gwyneth Paltrow Unsure Whether ‘Iron Man’ Series Will Continue

Two stars of the hugely successful Iron Man franchise are unsure whether there will be any more films in the series.

Iron Man 3 looks set to dominate the box office over the oncoming weeks, and so far it has grossed almost $200 million across the world, toppling The Avenger’s total from last year which was just $181.1million.

Industry experts have stated that the film’s success is because audiences view it as a sequel to The Avengers, which feature Iron Man’s Tony Stark as part of an ensemble cast that included Captain America, Thor, and The Hulk.

Iron Man 3 also kick started Marvel’s “Phase Two” films, and it is hoped that these movies will double the efforts of the previous “Phase One” endeavours.

But will Iron Man continue in this series? Various actors from these films have been discussing his future and they have different views.

Don Cheadle, who stars as James Rhodes, remarked, “It’s to be determined definitely by Marvel, and if they think there’s another aspect of the story that needs to be told that wasn’t covered in the trilogy. If there’s another way in that’s interesting.”

Cheadle then added, “I think if people like you make enough noise about it there’ll be an Iron Man 4.”

Meanwhile, Gwyneth Paltrow, who played Pepper Potts in the trilogy, wasn’t as enthusiastic, stating, “I don’t think there’s going to be [an Iron Man 4]. I think we’re done with Iron Man.”

Previously, Robert Downey Jr. also talked about the character’s future, stating that he thinks his time is up. “How may genre movies can I do?,” said the actor. “How many follow-ups to a successful follow-up are actually fun?”

He added, “Because, as quiet as it’s kept, I come from a family of very innovative writers and directors and actors and artists, and the circle of friends they were in were the people I heard having pun-offs playing poker at two in the morning, and it was just the most comforting aspect of my childhood.”

The Chaplin star then added, “So there’s this kind of legacy of souls from what I consider to be a very particular time in entertainment, and I’m sensing a return to that – it’s what me and the missus are doing next.”

Do you think there will be an Iron Man 4?
