Robert Downey Jr. Drops Hint About His ‘Iron Man’ Future

Downey Jr. appears in the newly-released "Captain America: Civil War."

Although it's unclear how many more films he'll appear in as Tony Stark, Downey seems to be taking the inevitable in stride.

“It’s like any athlete,” Downey told Jesse Palmer. “To me, when I come to really respect a player is when you realize you’re done, dude. Your stats aren’t keeping up. You’re at this age…please, hang up your jersey before you do something stupid and embarrass yourself.”

But Iron Man is not the only Marvel character Downey said he’d like to play.

As for having real life superpowers, Downey admits he’s just fine pretending for the movies.

“I’d probably abuse that right away," he remarked.

“Captain America: Civil War" is in theaters now.

Disney is the parent company of Marvel and ABC News.
