>Reports said that Marvel is trying to negotiate with Downey Jr. for playing Iron Man in "Iron Man 4" and is even willing to pay the actor $100 million to reprise his role. However, Downey Jr. is said to have grown weary and tired of the franchise already and thinks that he will be too old for the Iron Man role.

They think they can throw money at him to keep him going as Iron Man, but they don't understand is that they've already given him infinite money to play Iron Man already. What's the difference between 20 million and 100 million when you already have half a billion dollars in the bank?

Cape movies should do what James Bond does and just replace actors and have them play the same characters. That way we don't get a fucking reboot every 3 years.

They gave him too much too quickly.

At some point, all the numbers just kind of blend together.

I only have like 50k in the bank and I already don't know what else to buy that I really really want.

Imagine being RDJ with all his millions and having already bought all the Ashton Martins and coke party whores he could ever want.

At that point, you just want to be challenged again.

As an actor who wants to leave behind a legacy I seriously doubt he wants to be remembered as a fucking comic book character.
>>
>>64893651
He can't buy leg extensions like in Gattaca
>>
>>64893651
Sorry, but no. He defined that character for a generation. Before this, noone knew who the fuck Iron Man was without the armor. Now they immediately think of charismatic Downey Jr.

he's probably sick of doing promotional shit for capeshit and the money is just not worth it anymore

he's an adult. he doesn't give a fuck.

He's made the exact same movie five times in a decade. I'd want off that ride too.

>I seriously doubt he wants to be remembered as a fucking comic book character.

considering he was previously remembered as a drug addict, i'de say that's a step up

He was hired because of his work in Zodiac

>>64893849

"I'l do it if they let Mel direct it"

They'll hire someone else, someone with a comedy background. Probably Chris Pratt or something

So, they either have to end the MCU at some point(probably after Infinity War) or just not make another Iron Man movie.

I'm sick of Iron Man they should just stop making movies

>>
>>64893651
Pretty much this.
You see this happen pretty consistently with actors once they reach a certain age.
They simply realize that they are running out of time to use their talent to make something worthwhile. Something they can be proud of.

Even though they are rich they are still people who want for meaning and validation.

Look at Matt Mcanaughey, went from date night movie pretty boy to a freaking icon.

RDJ had to fight back into the light and used Iron man as his rebound chick to remind he can still fuck.

Now that he is settled and stupid rich he is starting to want something with more substance

I swear to God he posted here a week or so ago fishing opinion about another Iron Man. This is great.

He's 100% gonna die or retire in Infinity War anyways. They all will.

The only one I can see sticking around is Hawkeye. Everyone else will just fuck off
>>
>>64894078
it doesn't matter what he wants to do. He hasn't proved himself capable of playing anything with substance. His entire career is being a guy who spouts witty one liners. He'll probably be shitty in whatever else he does but it doesn't matter because he could live luxuriously for a a hundred lifetimes with all the money he has.

Matthew hadn't proved himself before he put out amazing performances either.

The point is that if RDJ has some amazing piece of work somewhere deep inside him then losing out on him as Iron man is a extremely small price to pay for him to explore that possibility.

All of them end with the good guys defeating the bad guy in a giant CGI fight though. The MCU movies have become painfully predictable.

Spider-Man will probably be the flagship. Also, I'm 99% sure that it's going to be:

Claim how much he hates it and won't come back, tease the fans so Hollywood has even more pressure to ante up, appease him, be "creative" so when Downey accepts he'll say it's cause of this wonderful vision someone had for the movie, suddenly he's getting paid 120 million plus a nice percentage of the revenue

He doesn't want his legacy to be destroying what ever the film medium could have been without capeshit saturation. I don't know why he doesn't take the money and run with it because it's too late, he elevated capeshit so high that no normie will ever watch something before the year 2005 ever again.
>>
>>64894802
The problem is the Marvel cinematic universe has had over 10 movies now and all of them have the same ending. They need to take risks. Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back has a very dark ending with the bad guys winning but that didn't stop it from making a shitload of money and it's now widely considered to be the best Star Wars movie.

They aren't gonna reboot or recast, they'll just continue the MCU with all the B tier characters they have and maybe have some of them take the roles of the A tier characters just like in the comics.
MCU makes way too much money for them to throw it all away on a reboot just cause an actor or two have to be killed off.

>>64893293
Kind of bothers me if they set up the entire extremis arc, only for them to not give Tony the extremis suit.
Such wasted potential. I guess there is a chance of him wearing it Civil War for a bit but it would still be a waste if that's all. And that's if we even get that.

Do kids still even watch Iron Man and Marvelshit?

Lots of people my generation didn't even watch the Star Wars prequels because they were born too early to see the first one. That's missing one fucking movie. This is a series of 15 or so to catch up with when they'd much rather marathon cartoons or anime.

I can't imagine my 5 year old nephew having much interest in bucky and cap resolving emotional problems he wasn't aware of.

Maby if the MCU did what DC is doing and making cape film that are cape films SECOND but other types of films first.

DC loves those neo noire crime thrillers, and i think thats whats gonna have them be king of the hill sooner or later.
Tone variation, art style variation, each movie isnt the same as the last, ect.

Hell its gonna happen to star wars as well.

Really if there is anythign to replace cape, its going to be giant monsters.

coverfield 2, godzilla (japan reboot) , Godzilla vs king kong, pacific rim 2, the possible pacific rim/godzilla cross over. Gamera, maby.
>>
Disney rep here. Off the record, RDJ says he's willing to IM4, but only if we can guarantee that none of the cast and crew make fun of his height, like has happened in prior movies. We can't really control that and so it can't be a contractual obligation on Disney's part. That's all I can say for now.

>>64897792
it think its not capeshit itself....but marvels brand fo cape shit.

RDJ is sick of Iron man because he's played him for 6 fucking movies and then some.

However Bale and Hardy, despite being fucking HUGE names in stuff other than cape still wanted to be in the new DCEU to a degree.

And i think its because the MCU.....is assembly line bullshit.
its shallow soulless marketing.

sure all films are for moeny to a degree, but lets look at another superhero movie coming out soon.

Deadpool.
Deadpool, despite all of /tv/s faggotry and memeing, is a project that the director, actors, ect had to BEG fox for, got shelved, and only got their measly 20 million after they leaked test footage which everyone liked.
Deadpool, whether or not its stupid, is breaking the MCU estblished mold by going ultra violent, having new gimmicks, not having the standard MCU storyline, being meta, along other things including fan involvment and having fun.

Hell Karl urban is STILL working to get Dredd 2 or a netflix sequel lifted off.

And suicide squad is doing what Nolan did and letting its director be the artist and making a crime thriller with bits of psycological horror thrown in directed by david ayer and professional highly prased editors and cinematographers.


Its less everyone is tired fo capeshit, and more people are tired of SAFE and forgettable capeshit.

>>64898548
ooohh two people with above average skills, always translates into a great all time classic movie.

who cares what their rep is? just judge the movie by the movie itself, not how auteur the director is supposed to be, or how professional the editor is supposed to be. good talented people have made shitty movies many, many times before.

>ooohh two people with above average skills, always translates into a great all time classic movie.
It sure as fuck doesnt hurt. its usually a good fucking sign. At the very least the film wont look or be paced like shit.

>who cares what their rep is? just judge the movie by the movie itself,
are you aware of what the director and his crew do to a movie?
Is it not a better to bet on people with acclaim, experience, and talent for their job as opposed to no named yes men?

>good talented people have made shitty movies many, many times before.
Well if it isnt out yet, then shouldnt i do some research into the production to see my CHANCES of liking it?
I could go in blind, or i could consider saving my 10 bucks and watching it when its on rental.
or if i like the cast and crew and they have a history of doing films similar to these well i could go see it in theaters knowing my chances of being satisfied are high.

its like betting on two roulette tables.
one table is perfectly even and has no bias.
one tends to have the ball land on or within 10 spaces of the number 15.

which one is more likely to get you money knowing that information?

it comes out in like 6 months.

Also why are you so butthurt?

Looking up the production crews pretty much told me star wars 7 was guaranteed shit.

maby if you tried to recognize patterns you would see more movie you liked as opposed to walking out of a theater bored and pissed you wasted 2 hours and 10 bucks.


And why cant we appreciate the editors and cinematographers? Or the gaphers, lighting crews, ect?
they're the ones who make or break a film.

i saw it because it was star wars and i had to know HOW BAD it was gonna be.

and as i predicted, editing, pacing and cinematography was fucking awful as well as the rest of the film.

same thing happened during jurassic world, but i went because i just fucking had to know how bad.

On the flip side i went to see into the heart of the sea for its director, crew and source material/historical basis, and while it wasnt a master piece it was a very enjoyable sit.

and i just recently saw Revenant and it was awesome.

And its why i think BVS will be decent at least, and suicide squad is likely to be very enjoyable or at least look and be made very well.

Here's what's gonna happen guys, I'm gonna guess:

Infinity War part 2 ends with some of the A-lister heroes sacrificing themselves to beat Thanos. This being Marvel, they obviously don't want to kill their heroes for good. So at least Iron Man, maybe someone else as well (possibly Cap, Evans says he likes doing the movies but wants to direct more, he might want to do that) do the ultimate sacrifice. It'll be something like them taking Thanos down with them, dragging him with the Infinity Gauntlet into some Space Dimension XYEYA like in comic books. With Cap you don't need to recast, they can use Bucky or even the black dude like in the comics to take his place as the new Cap. With Iron Man, they can essentially soft reboot. He "dies" in this alternative dimension but somehow miraculously survives and like Dr Strange or some cosmic hero manages to find Iron Man. They drag him out. But because it's cosmic space dimension and shit, his face, height, voice, age, everything has changed. This is how they can keep the old continuity and essentially soft reboot the character with a younger actor. This also takes some pressure off from the new guy. He went through some cosmic dimension shit so he's a changed man and not a carbon copy of Downey Jr's performance.

My explanation might sound shitty because I'm not a native speaker but I wouldn't be surprised if they pull a stunt like this in case they need to recast.
>>

>>64893293
This is an issue that I feel studios have overlooked when planning these ongoing movie series with indefinite installments and solo character movies, most actors will get tired of playing the same characters in the same story over and over agin for years, sure they can replace the odd actor with another one, but when a number of them all decide to start jumping ship replacing them all with different actors is just going to be jarring as fuck and mess with the cohesion of the series.

It was rumored a couple years ago that Marvel Studios wants to establish Doctor Strange as their new Iron Man figure in the MCU after Downey leaves, which would explain why they picked Cumberbatch for the whole - built-in audience from his fans.
