Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. made an appearance on the latest episode of Joe Rogan Experience, and aside from discussing the massively-popular actor’s career, Joe Rogan pitched a potential return for the armor-clad Avenger to Downey Jr., asking if he’d ever make a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Here’s what I think, they go through a few semi-lackluster Avengers movies without you,” said Rogan. “There’s a moment where the world’s fate is at stake and they’ve realized they need a super genius. Then, they figure out how to restart that time machine. You step out of that machine and the entire crowd goes wild.” To this, Downey Jr. replied that he has no plans to play Tony Stark after his ultimate sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame, preferring instead to focus on other opportunities: “If I pick the jersey back up and put it on, wouldn’t you feel a little bit like, Aw, crap? … To me, starting up again is off the table. I feel like I’ve done all I could with that character,” he said. “There would have to be a super compelling argument and a series of events that made it obvious. But the other thing is, I wanna do other stuff.”

With Dolittle being the actor’s first role outside of Tony Stark for more than five years, it’s understandable that his focus may be elsewhere now, but given his last comment about a compelling argument, there may still be some hope for the diehard Iron Man fans out there.

Elsewhere in entertainment, the synopses for The Eternals and Doctor Strange 2 has been released.
