OFFICIAL: Robert Downey Jr. Joins the Cast of CAPTAIN AMERICA 3!


After seemingly playing coy with the press regarding the future of the Iron Man series, Variety reports that Robert Downey Jr. is now attached to play his iconic role in the next Captain America movie.

The move brings Downey, who has been teasing more work with Marvel beyond his current contract, back into the solo superhero movie business, where he’s made more money by a wide margin than anybody else in Marvel’s stable.

Downey’s existing deal had him on for only two more films: Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has already wrapped filming for release next year, and Avengers 3, which is expected in 2018.

Interestingly, the story also indicates that it will be based on the events of the Civil War comic book arc, in which the Marvel community got divided over the enactment of the Superhuman Registration Act, and saw Captain America in conflict against Tony Stark. Sources also purport that Cap 3 might be subtitled as Civil War or Fallen Son.

Captain America 3 is due on theaters May 6, 2016.
