Robert Downey Jr says he will do Iron Man 4 if Mel Gibson directs it
Robert Downey Jr has said that he will make Iron Man 4, but only if Mel Gibson is behind the camera.
The actor, who is currently promoting his new film The Judge, told Deadline that he learned a lot from Gibson on the 1990 action comedy Air America and would definitely consider working with him again.
Downey Jr has previously said that he is reluctant to sign for another stand-alone Iron Man, but when asked if he would reconsider were Gibson to direct, the actor said: "Why not? That movie would be bananas."
Last week, the actor was non-commital on his future in the role. Asked about his role as Tony Stark and its future, he said: "I'm sure we'll ride that thing. You've got to surf that all the way in to shore. I think I was at the forefront of something that was coming into being, and I think it has carried me as much as I have informed it."
He continued: "That's the healthy way to look at it. It's so easy to become inflated by the successes, but what they really are are long, strong trends. It's just another wave."
