Don’t get too worried about it, but it could happen. characters in Marvel’s cinematic universe have gone through multiple actors, from Terrence Howard to Don Cheadle, from Edward Norton to Mark Ruffalo, but could the man who brought to life the most bankable Avenger, Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man himself, abandon the series? In an interview with GQ magazine, RDJ gives us the answer: “possibly.”

He explains that he’s getting old (48 this month) and, after injuring his ankle on the set of Iron Man 3, he has to acknowledge that it’s way harder than it used to, even with that CGI suit. He also remarks about his vast creative desires, being a writer, and wanting to make the kinds of films he wants to make, rather than the ones he makes because they bring in obscene amounts of money.

Of course, he doesn’t go so far as to say that he’s done; obscene amounts of money and a presumably iron-tight contract will likely keep him in the game at least through The Avengers 2, but after that, what if he decides to leave? Would they kill off his character? Could they get away with recasting him? I mean, Hulk was one thing, but Tony’s a lot less… Green. What if they kill him off halfway through Iron Man 3, then Jon Favreau’s Happy takes over the mantle? Ooh, please be the last one! Seriously, though, I think he’ll always be grateful to Marvel, not just for the fifty million dollars he made off of The Avengers, but also because they were instrumental in saving him from, well… This.
