Pretty much had to pay him whatever he wanted, he's irreplaceable in the role, probably the only member of the cast you could say that about.

Um, how CAN you make an Avengers movie with Iron Man when Tony had the arc reactor removed from his body that MAKES him Iron Man in the first place?! It just makes no sense!!

Obviously someone didn't learn the lesson taught in Iron Man 3.

It's Tony Stark that makes Iron Man, not the arc reactor or the suits.

Besides, despite that the suits are destroyed, he could just make some more. Pretty easy.

Eh, it was alright. I liked that it was different from the usual superhero fare, though I'm not sure that they should've performed that experiment on a much-adored villain from the original comic.

Is it possible for news to be good and bad at the same time? It's great that RDJ will be in the Avengers 2 and 3, but sad that there may not be anymore Iron Man stand alone movies.

For me, no one else could fill Iron Man's shoes. If the Iron Man movies had been just "some guy in a suit", it wouldn't have had the same appeal as Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal of Tony Stark/Iron Man. I have followed Robert Downey Jr.'s career since the days of Weird Science and I think he has matured to be one of the better actors in modern day Hollywood. I may be the only one who wasn't disappointed with "more Tony Stark/less Iron Man" in Iron Man 3, as I think he has added "character" to his character.

Damn, SPOILER your comment if you're going to talk about what happens at the end of IM3, some of us prefer to wait for Blu-ray to experience the movie for the very first time on our own systems in the comfort of our own homes which to me sound better than the cinema anyway!!

Agree with Silo5, RD Jr is definitely one of my faves and always has been, just watched Back to School a couple weeks ago and he's almost as funny as Thornton Melon (Rodney D) in it. 10cc brain? Possibly neanderthal man? lol

Great to see this news, and that Whedon is returning to the director's chair.

It wasn't just his paycheck he was negotiating. The rest of the cast have been getting the penny pincher treatment from Marvel (the current CEO is notorious) and he's been big brother to his co-stars. If he signed the line it must mean everybody got some kind of bump. It's awesome where he's at with his career because it wasn't that long ago that Mel Gibson covered his insurance to get him back onscreen. I am curious how this all works out with how things were more or less wrapped up at the end of part 3.

hewylewis: "Um, how CAN you make an Avengers movie with Iron Man when Tony had the arc reactor removed from his body that MAKES him Iron Man in the first place?! It just makes no sense!!"

It makes perfect sense; you're just not thinking it through. The only reason that the ARC reactor needed to be in his body was to keep the shrapnel from tearing up his heart. With the shrapnel removed, he doesn't need the ARC for that purpose anymore, so it was removed as well. He can still use an ARC to power his suit, but it doesn't have to be sitting in his chest anymore.

"That and HE DESTROYED ALL HIS SUITS AT THE END OF IRON MAN 3!!!"

Christ, he built 42 suits in the time between The Avengers and Iron Man 3. Do you think that not having an ARC reactor in his chest anymore will somehow make him forget how to build more?
