Iron Man aka. Tony Stark was portrayed by Hollywood superstar Robert Downey Jr. in all the three Iron Man films that have come out including the 4 Avengers films, who also starred in extensive supporting roles in Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming and, also made an uncredited cameo in The Incredible Hulk.
With Iron Man/Tony Stark eventually sacrificing himself during the massive battle between the Avengers and Thanos, the Mad Titan for the fate of the universe in Avengers: Endgame, there have been many wondering if the character will ever make an appearance again or anybody else will go on to eventually take on the mantle.
During the promotions for Spider-Man: Far From Home coming out on July 2, director and actor Jon Favreau, who stars as the character Harold "Happy" Hogan was queried on the possibility for an Iron Man 4 film. He went on to state saying, “We haven’t talked about 4. I’ve talked to Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios) about it to see what they’re up to, but we definitely love working together and we love these characters. So we talk about what it would be, and we always joke about the ‘Freak’ storyline, which is a Happy Hogan storyline when he turns into a Hulk-like character. We joke about that, though, no plans as of yet.”
As of now, the Iron Man character will be referenced in detail in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is the 23rd film in the MCU and is set in the aftermath of the events of Avengers: Endgame.
