Robert Downey Jr. took to Reddit today to promote his new movie "The Judge." In the dialog online, we learn some interesting little tidbits.
Iron Man 4?
When asked how serious he was when he said he would do another Iron Man if Mel Gibson where to direct it.
Robert Downey Jr.: It was an offhanded remark to a journalist and friend. I have other projects in mind for Mel and I - sooner than later the Marvel Roster will be made public and all questions will be answered.
Agents of Shield?
When asked "What ongoing TV show would you be willing to guest star or do a cameo for?"
Robert Downey Jr.: [Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.](series:722469)
When asked if there was any chance he'd drop by on Agents of SHIELD this season? :)
Robert Downey Jr.: Nothing is impossible. But there might be a fair amount of red tape involved in something like that. I love Clark Gregg, and am pleased the show is doing so well.
When asked Is shawarma any good, and how are Hulk's table manners?
Robert Downey Jr.: Haha! The Hulk is a slob. Bruce Banner's etiquette is right out of the Tiffany Book of Table Manners. I remember shooting that shawarma post-credit scene, and having just finished Avengers: Age of Ultron, wondered how we'd beat it. Joss says "The way to win is to not try."
When asked if there was ever going to be a [Sherlock Holmes 3](movie:593262)?
Robert Downey Jr.: Yes, we have a Sherlock 3 in development. We want it to be the best of the series, so that's a pretty tall order. Also, Perry Mason is a property I'm looking forward to developing further, going back to the 1931 book series...similarly to what we did with the first 2 Sherlocks, mining the original material for things that are "new."
When asked more about the Perry Mason project...
Robert Downey Jr.: The Perry Mason project we're developing is kind of a pre-"Chinatown" gumshoe thriller with some courtroom stakes, and action sequences. So you've got one in the pipes, just for you.
When asked what are the chances of a Weird Science sequel? Please say 100%. Kthx.
Robert Downey Jr.: ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. You're welcome.
When asked if He would you ever play in Doctor Who if he got the opportunity?
Robert Downey Jr.: It's funny you'd bring that up. A writer asked me to watch a particular episode about a month ago, in hopes of helping us break story on a project. An incredible series. Anything's possible.
