According to Variety, Marvel has no immediate plans to bring back Robert Downey Jr. into the MCU, with the actor himself confirming he's done playing the character.

"Playing Tony/Iron Man was hard and I dug deep. I had an incredible 10-year run that was creatively satisfying," Downey told The Hindustan Times.

"I’ve done all I could with that character and can do other things now.

"Now, being middle-aged, you start looking at the back nine and realize this is all part of the journey, and things end.

"I am fortunate and eternally grateful to have wound up where I have," he added.
