The actor, best known for playing Tony Stark, nicknamed Iron Man, was photographed on the set of the upcoming Marvel superhero flick Captain America: Brave New World.
For the past few months, Anthony Mackie, who is heading the cast alongside Harrison Ford, has been photographed filming the fourth installment of the Captain America franchise. Several familiar faces appear in the film. Liv Tyler will also return as Betty Ross, the character she played in The Incredible Hulk.
After novelist Nawar Shora shared a sneak peek from the film’s sets in Washington, D.C. on his Facebook page, word spread regarding Downey Jr.’s comeback as Iron Man. Along with the photos, he offered a comprehensive description of his interaction with one of the project’s security guards.
While Brave New World is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, it is unknown whether it will include a flashback scene. The return of RDJ to the MCU has generated a lot of excitement. Fans are still expecting to see the superstar on the big screen, despite prior claims indicating his return.
His character, Iron Man, dies in the events of Endgame, and while other characters in the MCU have handed the baton to other actors, no confirmation of another actor taking on the role of Iron Man has been made.
