Robert Downey Jr. has been on the press circuit the last few weeks promoting his new movie The Judge and, while he took to Reddit to answer fans questions directly, he also appeared on Ellen where she finally was able to get a direct answer on his future with Iron Man.
After months of questions and rumors, Ellen got a conclusive yes from the Iron Man star that a fourth movie is in negotiations.
Additionally, with his usual wit, charming humility, and refreshing candidness, Robert Downey Jr. took to Reddit today for the first time and left himself to the mercy of the inquisitive internet to ask him anything. Easily hitting the front page within minutes, RDJ’s AMA netted over 11k comments in the span of the hour and a half he (and his transcriber, Victoria) spent answering questions.
Hitting the second pressing question that has been on all of his fans minds, he confirmed a Sherlock 3 is in the works and that he is indeed a part of it, saying specifically:
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.
He then went on to answer various questions: that his children were his greatest accomplishments, Elon Musk tops his list of non-Hollywood people he’d like to spend some time with (along with Andrew Luck and Anderson Cooper), he’s not an especially good dancer, he requires at least one bath per day, he has screen envy of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock, a writer from Doctor Who has asked him to watch an episode to potentially work on a story, and it’s not impossible that he would guest star on the television series Agents of SHIELD but there is a lot of red tape to get around for that to happen.
More off the wall questions were answered as well, including what kind of pizza he would be, what his favorite late night snack is, and more. You can check out the full AMA on Reddit after you get done celebrating all the fantastic RDJ news today!Source: Reddit
