Robert Downey Jr. has signed an extensive deal with Marvel to play Tony Stark as Iron Man in three different films: “The Avengers”, “Iron Man 2”, and “Iron Man 3”.
As you know, “The Avengers” are a huge mix of Marvel comic superheros into one whole group and Iron Man is part of the “The Avengers”. The first “Avengers” movie is aiming for a July 15th, 2011 date and the first “Avengers” film will only focus on the superheros of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Incredible Hulk characters first.
I wonder if Edward Norton will sign on to play in “The Avengers” as the Incredible Hulk? That be pretty cool.
