Robert Downey Jr. Fuels 'Iron Man 4' Speculation

Don't mess with us, RDJ.

Up until recently, it hasn't looked like there's ever going to be another solo Iron Man movie.

First of all, Robert Downey Jr.'s contract only includes the next two "Avengers." Then there's the fact that "Iron Man 3" pretty much ended his individual storyline. Also, RDJ has said that he's probably done.

Well, I guess he's changed his mind, maybe, possibly?

The actor appeard on "Ellen" to talk about "The Judge," which is out this week, and DeGeneres got what might be considered an answer out of him.

"I know there's going to be a bunch more Marvel movies, and they have a big idea of how to do it best, and we're in the middle of negotiations," Downey said.

When Ellen asked if that meant, yes, there is going to be another "Iron Man," he gave an obliging "Okay, yes."

Now, if you watch the video, Downey sounds like he's just saying that to please Ellen, but there might be something to it.

It should come as no surprise that Marvel would be interested in getting their biggest earner back in the fold, but this one might come down to how Downey feels about more time in the iron suit.

"Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens in theaters on May 1.
