Robert Downey Jr confirms he’s ‘done’ with Marvel amid Black Widow rumours

Robert Downey Jr has splashed ice cold water on the possibility of him returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just in case anyone was still holding out hope. 

As you *should* all know by now, Robert, 55, bowed out of the MCU in Avengers: Endgame last year after his OG character Iron Man sacrificed himself to save his fellow superheroes. 

However recent rumours have swirled that perhaps Tony Stark could make a cameo in the upcoming standalone Black Widow movie alongside Scarlett Johansson. 

Well, either Robert is truly over starring in the MCU or he’s taking us for a ride because he’s pretty much shut that possibility down. 

RDJ caught up with actors Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes for their SmartLess podcast this week and set the record straight on the comeback rumours. 

Ozark star Jason asked: ‘I’m assuming that the Marvel thing is at a slower speed now, or are you done with that now?’ 

Robert then stated: ‘That’s all done.’ 

He doesn’t mince his words does he? 

It comes after Robert explained there was no coming back for Iron Man in January. Speaking to Extra, he said: ‘As far as I’m concerned, I hung up my guns and I’m good to let it go. 

‘I also think that Marvel is on this journey now, they’re trying a bunch of other stuff and you know, I’m excited for them to see how all that goes.’ 

It’s widely speculated that RDJ could appear in the prequel movie Black Widow, which will centre on Johansson’s heroine Natasha Romanoff who, like Iron Man, was also killed off in Endgame. 

Marvel fans are speculating that Robert could appear in flashbacks and honestly, we’re not taking his word for it. 

It’s a devastating time for the MCU family after the shocking death of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who had secretly battled colon cancer. 

Robert paid tribute to his Avengers co-star and tweeted: ‘Mr. Boseman leveled the playing field while fighting for his life… That’s heroism. I’ll remember the good times, the laughter, and the way he changed the game… #chadwickforever.’
