Robert Downey Jr. on 'Iron Man 4': 'Why give up the belt?'

Are we going to get another Iron Man movie?

Marvel Studios has been unequivocal: Yes, someday. They see Tony Stark as being just as evergreen as James Bond. But the unanswered follow-up is: Will a fourth movie be with Robert Downey Jr., the star who helped launch this entire universe of interlocked superhero films?

Everyone is playing coy on that front, but we may find out more this weekend when Marvel starts filling in the blanks on all those untitled movies that have been dated through 2019.

On the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, EW asked Downey point-blank: Does he want to star in an Iron Man 4?

His answer wasn’t so point-blank. In fact, he starts to sound a little like a Magic 8-Ball as he tries to keep it vague. But the answer I gleaned was: Signs point to yes.

Inside Marvel's Top Secret Weapons Warehouse -- VIDEO

Marvel’s secret weapon is the man who makes them: propmaster Russell Bobbitt.

Now at work on his sixth film for Marvel Studios, Bobbitt builds the objects that save (and sometimes threaten to destroy) the world: Thor’s hammer. Iron Man’s glowing ARC reactor. Captain America’s vibranium shield.

Among the countless objects he supplied for this Friday’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Bobbitt crafted 46 different shields of various levels of flexibility and style, constantly refreshing and repainting those that were damaged in stunts or fight scenes throughout the three-month production. He has previously worked on all three Iron Man films, Thor, and is currently assembling gear for Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man.

Best of 2013 (Behind the Scenes): 'Iron Man 3' VFX artists on the Mark 42 suit design

Tony Stark is invincible — at least when it comes to the numbers for Iron Man 3, that is. A whopping $174 million at the box office opening weekend. A staggering $409 million domestically. More than $1.2 billion grossed worldwide.

But the genius/billionaire/playboy/philanthropist character who’s appeared in five Marvel films so far was fallible in his third standalone feature, spending much of his post-Avengers time in his basement, designing prototype after prototype of his Iron Man suits to keep his mind off his near-death experience.

The most eye-popping one he built: The Mark 42 (below), which he can summon remotely in individual pieces to his body via sensors he injected under his skin.

Of course, “Tony Stark” didn’t build the suit at all; instead, 1500 visual effects artists worked on the film, and according to Chris Townsend, the film’s visual effects supervisor, at least half of them worked on the Mark 42.

“We ended up having eight [visual effects] companies throughout the world working on that particular suit,” he tells EW. “Hopefully in the end, for the audience, if we’ve done our jobs right, they’ll think from shot to shot, it looks like it’s all created by Tony Stark.”

EW talked to the minds who spearheaded the suit’s concept — the real Tony Starks, if you will — to get a breakdown of the process, from the initial idea to adding Robert Downey Jr.

Big things happen in threes.

With Iron Man 3 heading into its third weekend, now is the perfect time to look ahead to what Marvel Studios may be planning for its own third act — the evolving multi-movie slate known as Phase Three.

The question that still hasn’t been resolved, even internally at the studio… What comes next?

From Stark … to Savage.
Shane Black, who is hot off the massive success of Iron Man 3, will co-write and direct an adventure film based on the 1930s and ’40s pulp her Doc Savage, Sony Pictures has announced.
The studio said Black, whose previous films include Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and writing Lethal Weapon, is considering it as his next project.
But generations of genre fans might be forgiven for asking: Who is Doc Savage???

How did 'Downton Abbey' end up getting a shout-out in 'Iron Man 3'? It's quite simple, really...

Downton Abbey might be on hiatus but Hollywood certainly hasn’t taken a break from nodding to the ever-growing phenomenon.

But while Modern FamilyThe OfficeSuits30 Rock and even How I Met Your Mother (in its own way) have all recently given nods to Abbey, Iron Man 3, which made $680 million globally in the box office this weekend, could end up being one of the show’s most significant pieces of exposure yet.

'Iron Man 3' does WHAT to The Mandarin? -- SPOILER ANALYSIS

Ben-Kingsley_612x380.jpg

SPOILER ALERT! Here’s fair warning: Don’t read this unless you’ve already seen Iron Man 3.

Winston Churchill famously described Russia as “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” Swaddle those things one more time in a green, gold-fringed robe and you can also apply that phrase to Ben Kingsley’s villain The Mandarin in Iron Man 3.

Except … when the core of the character finally comes to light, we get a revelation that few could have expected from such an iconic comic-book badass.

EW spoke with the filmmakers and can now peel back the four layers of this super-villain twist to show how — and why — it all happened this way …

Marvel's Phase Two: 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Cap 2: Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Avengers 2' -- EXCLUSIVE

Marvel-Phase-2.jpg

Even heroes need a master plan.

When Marvel Studios began producing its own movies in 2008 with the original Iron Man, the film ended with Samuel L. Jackson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. spymaster Nick Fury telling Robert Downey Jr.: “Mr. Stark, you’ve become part of a bigger universe … “

That was the start of Phase One, in which The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America each linked up and laid the groundwork for what would become 2012’s biggest movie – the billion-and-a-half dollar blockbuster The Avengers.

With Iron Man 3 opening Friday, Marvel launches Phase Two – another ambitious expansion of its superheroes’ cinematic universe. Though much of it remains secret, producer and studio president Kevin Feige talked to EW to declassify a few new details.

CapeTown Film Festival: Rare 'Iron Man 3' poster will go home with EW subscriber

iron-man-poster.jpg

This year is the golden anniversary of the gleaming hero called Iron Man and the past five of those 50 years have been a turbo-charged ride to the heights of American pop culture. Before Iron Man (2008) the armored avenger was a second-tier Marvel character with a clunky name. Now he’s the world’s favorite canned ham and the bright knight of the box office.

On Tuesday night, Entertainment Weekly and Disney’s Marvel Studios will mark the anniversary with a free and early screening of Iron Man 3 for 600 fans, all of them either local EW subscribers (who were contacted via email with a special RSVP link) or members of the American Cinematheque, the Los Angeles non-profits arts center with a focus on film arts, Hollywood heritage, and the creative community linking them.

The screening takes place during the first night of the inaugural Entertainment Weekly CapeTown Film Festival, the festival with quirky name and a densely packed week of sci-fi, fantasy, comics, video games, horror and animation — the same vivid districts covered by EW.com’s record-breaking new CapeTown sub-site.

One fan in the room will also get rare souvenir to take home. Marvel’s president Kevin Feige will bring along the limited edition poster shown above, which was made especially for cast and crew and is not available for purchase. It looks even better in hi-res. The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew vibe is perfect for a movie that involves the knotty mystery of the location and intentions of a terrorist calling himself the Mandarin (played by Ben Kingsley).
