Actor Robert Downey Jr has said that he has one more solo Iron Man movie in him. The Sherlock Holmes star will be reprising the role of Tony Stark for the seventh time in Captain America: Civil War. The highly anticipated film is set to open in theatres in the UK on 29 April and on 6 May in the US.

"I feel like I could do one more," Downey said on ABC's Nightline, when asked about whether he would play the superhero if Iron Man 4 happens, according to MovieWeb.

In 2014, Downey had hinted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Iron Man 4 could happen but later clarified that he was not specifically talking about Iron Man 4, but rather his return in Captain America: Civil War. There is still a possibility that Iron Man 4 could happen as Marvel is yet to disclose all of its plans for phase four, although it has not been listed on the initial production list so far.

Iron Man fans, however, will get to see the actor in action in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie is set to release in the US on 7 July 2017. As of now it is not known how substantial Stark's role will be in the Spider-Man reboot. Moreover, Downey will dawn the metal armoured suit for the Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018.

In Captain America: Civil War, Iron Man and Captain America (Chris Evans) will be in conflict over whether to allow the government to take control of the Avengers after the superheroes' last assignment caused co-lateral damage. The Avengers will be divided on the issue and go on to form two teams, one supporting Iron Man and the other Captain America. While Stark would be in favour of the government controlling the Avengers, Steve Rogers will be against it.
