Downey Jr. (right) has be­come syn­ony­mous with the pop­u­lar su­per­hero Iron Man, af­ter por­tray­ing the char­ac­ter in 10 movies, pro­duced by Marvel. How­ever, the ac­tor is won­der­ing if it’s time to hang up his red-and­gold ar­mour and leave the Marvel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse.

“It’s this cycli­cal thing. I could have said when the first Avengers came out ‘It’s never go­ing to get any bet­ter than that. Every­body stop.’ But to me, it’s al­ways about peo­ple and op­por­tu­ni­ties, like the Rus­sos [Avengers direc­tors An­thony Russo and Joe Russo], who I adore,” says Downey Jr.

He says that ev­ery­one has ap­pre­ci­ated his per­for­mance and told him that the char­ac­ter suits him well. But, he does not want to blow it all away and drop the ball by play­ing the su­per­hero again.“I just want to hang up my jer­sey be­fore it’s em­bar­rass­ing,” he adds.

The 52-year-old made his de­but as the hero in Iron Man (2008) and he will reprise his role in the movie Avengers: In­fin­ity War.
