A recent report claims that the Iron Man actor is willing to come back if two of his conditions are met. Now that Robert Downey Jr has decided to pull Iron Man out of retirement, how will MCU bring him back to his Iron Man suit?
Ever since his character died on-screen, fans have wanted Robert Downey Jr to come back to MCU and the Avengers. There have been various conspiracy theories placing him in various Marvel Phase 4 and 5 movies. But all these theories had no meaning unless the actor says yes to the role. Well, reportedly, he has. But he has two conditions.
- Robert Downey Jr is willing to put on the Iron Man suit but on two conditions
- Marvel Comics give a cue on how to bring back Iron Man
- Robert Dowey Jr will be back to MCU with a set of prehistoric superheroes called the Ancient Avengers of 1,000,000 BC
The two conditions of Iron Man
A recent report by We Got This Covered claims that Robert Downey Jr will return to MCU to lead the Avengers on two conditions. Here are those conditions-
- More pay
- Gwyneth Paltrow’s return as Tony Stark’s wife, Pepper Potts
If Kevin Feige agrees to increase his pay, and Gwyneth Paltrow agrees to come back to MCU, Robert Dowey Jr might return to Marvel. Whether the report is true or not, only time will tell. But with such immense demands from fans asking Robert Downey Jr to revive his role, it is highly likely that he might end up joining the MCU and the Avengers too. (Somehow.)
The real challenge for Marvel Studios would be to pick up the perfect story from the comics that would explain Iron Man’s revival without forcing it. There is one story that is the perfect recipe for such an occasion.
Robert Downey Jr will be back to MCU with the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC
A May 2019 Marvel comic narrates the story of Robert Downey Jr’s character, Iron Man, as he travels through time to a prehistoric Earth. This could easily be turned into an interesting audience-magnet cinematic adaptation. Iron Man is thrown into an unknown world a million years back in time and has no way of returning home. This prehistoric Marvel Universe is filled with threats that Iron Man is no match for. It would be a great treat for fans to watch Robert Downey Jr with the Ancient Avengers of 1,000,000 BC.
The Avengers of 1,000,000 BC are so far back in time that young Odin owns the Mjolnir and he doesn’t even know who Thor is.
Apart from Odin, these Ancient Avengers consist of-
- a version of Ghost Rider
- a Hulk-like caveman
- Black Panther
- a cavewoman who is possessed by Phoenix Force
- the first female Iron Fist, and
- the original Sorcerer Supreme, Agamotto.
Such a team would be a good place to bring in fresh talent to the MCU screen along with bringing back Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man.
What do you think? Would Avengers of 1,000,000 BC make a good story for Robert Dowey’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
