Why It Was Cancelled

  1. Iron Man 3 had a bit of negative and mix reviews from fans (although it had a lot of positive reviews) and was also a bit low at the box office.
  2. Robert Downey Jr. expressed interest in making a fourth film and wanted Mel Gibson to direct and he was also interested but the project never prevailed.
  3. A War Machine spin off was also in the works but it too was cancelled.
  4. Tony Stark died in Avengers: Endgame.


  • The film was cancelled and the Iron Man films are now a trilogy.
  • Two Disney+ series are in development that are tied to the Iron Man franchise, Ironheart and Armor Wars.
  • The Mandarin eventually got his debut in the MCU movie Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.


  • There were rumours going around that Robert Downey Jr. would be replaced by Colin Farrell as Tony Stark/Iron Man in Iron Man 4, Avengers: Age of Ultron and future MCU projects due to his age. Despite the rumours, although Iron Man 4 never happened, Downey was able to reprise his role as Tony Stark in Age of Ultron up until Avengers: Endgame.
