Apparently there’s a rumor going on that Marvel wants Robert Downey Jr. to reprise his role as Iron Man in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This interesting news came first from comicbook.com, but that’s it, and it’s still a rumor without confirmation.
Another hint is that during the New York Comic Con Marvel revealed the cover of the new Guardians of the Galaxy graphic novel, and Iron Man was seen as part of the group. Needless to say that many people started to especulate that the flamboyant billionaire Tony Stark (RDJ) could be in the deep space film. However Robert Downey Jr. still has to sign a new contract with Marvel, Iron Man 3 is his last film under contract.
Here is a tease of Iron Man meeting with the Guardians… you be the judge.
This is what the revealing article of comicbook.com had to say:
“While we’re unsure if this connects, a twitter account with the handle Roger Wardell has been known to tweet some Marvel Studios new before it has been actually announced. Before the New York Comic Con revelation of Iron Man appearing in the new Guardians of the Galaxy comic book, Wardell tweeted, “Inside News: Remember that the Guardians of the Galaxy banner was only concept art, so that may not be the final roster of the team.”
“In other tweets, Wardell has suggested that Iron Man 3 underwent a last minute rewrite particularly in the film’s third act and that Iron Man 3 will feature a mid credits scene and a post credits scene. Our sources aren’t familiar with a rewrite or how many in credits scenes there are in Iron Man 3, but if Wardell is correct, then here’s a little bit of speculation.”
