The 'Iron Man' armor

He further admitted that he is not sure until when he's going to portray the role. However, the actor already talks about his plans to stop working for the movie sequel. Meanwhile, Downey is currently promoting his latest film, the "Spider-man: Homecoming." Further, it was also believed that he only took three days to complete filming for his upcoming role in the said movie.

No indication of retirement

In one of his latest interviews, Downey revealed that he cannot yet give the exact time as to when he is going to retire from his role. However, he also shared that it was something that has been on his mind for quite some time. Despite the continued success of Marvel Cinematic Universe films, the actor seems like he wanted to start something new.

A report from WJLA also shared his statement that says, "I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it's embarrassing." Further, he also added that when he did "The Avengers" back in 2012, he felt that the movie will never go any better than what they had.

The actor also opened up about his short role in "Spider-man: Homecoming."
