So it seems this week is shaping up to be a rough one…Today while surfing the World Wide Web I stumbled upon some very disheartening news – rumour has it that Robert Downey Jr will be leaving the Iron Man franchise when he reaches the grand old age of 50.
50?! But he’s already 48! I hear you scream – yes it does seem very young to be throwing in the iron helmet, but let’s face it, if RDJ doesn’t think he can do the role justice do we really want to see him and our beloved Tony Stark suffer? I think not. As much as I love Iron Man and RDJ, as he said in his interview things can’t last forever.
No they can’t – no matter how many sequels we may want some things are better left when in their prime (producers of the Saw franchise TAKE NOTE).
RDJ is a sensational actor but I don’t want to see a half hearted attempt – if he’s ready to leave I’ll stand and give the ovation he deserves.
I’m Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, got a great girl, occasionally save the world. – Tony Stark, Iron Man 3.
