NextMovie: Joss Whedon, Robert Downey Jr. & 'Avengers 2'

Robert Downey Jr. isn't signed up for any more sequels, but his director definitely wants him back for "Marvel's The Avengers 2."

Last month, Downey, his producing partner/wife Susan Downey, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Disney Studios boss Alan Horn and "Iron Man 3" director Shane Black sat down to lunch to celebrate their latest box-office bonanza, but also ostensibly to talk about Downey's deal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

There's nothing on the books concerning Downey and "Iron Man 4" and he's reportedly still in negotiations about a second and third Avengers movie.

In an interview promoting his Shakespeare passion project, "Much Ado About Nothing," the man who helped carry "The Avengers" to over $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales didn't mince words about Downey's potential return.
