Iron Man 3 - Premier London


Robert Downey Jnr has said that he is unsure if he will play the role of superhero Iron Man again.
Speaking to Sky News at the premiere of the series' third installment in London he admitted he had not made a decision about the road ahead.
He said: "Right now the future is uncertain, but I think it's very important that we end this first Marvel phase in a way that is definitive and has people asking questions."

His co-star Don Cheadle commented that he was keen to persuade the lead star to don the metallic suit again.
Cheadle joked: "I'm going to threaten him that I'll let all his secrets out and then maybe we'll see if he can come back!"
The story of the Iron Man 3 movie picks up directly after last year's Avengers Assemble, which became the third highest-grossing movie of all time.
In a recent interview Downey Jnr suggested he took home $50m (£32m) from that film alone, thanks to a profit-sharing deal he struck with the Marvel studio and Disney.
Superhero movies have proved indestructible at the box office, with the Avengers, X-Men and Spider-Man series all passing the $1bn (£760m) grossing mark.
Downey Jnr says good storylines and a sense of humour are the key to a franchise's success.
"When the first one came out people said they appreciated how witty it was and so we've tried to keep up that tradition."

He first played took on the role in 2008 and the latest film sees him pitted against a mysterious criminal dubbed The Mandarin, played by Sir Ben Kingsley.
"The script and the direction allowed me to have so many layers. It's very far from two dimensional - my character is wonderful," he explained.
The Oscar winner was also full of praise for his co-star.
He said: "Robert's character always allows himself to become a little bit vulnerable- there's the iron suit and then what's inside that suit. It's a very interesting layer to add."
Iron Man 3 opens in the UK on April 25.
