Iron Man 4 was a planned sequel to 2013's Iron Man 3 and would have been an installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. 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.
  2. A War Machine spin-off was also in the works but it too was cancelled.


  • The film was cancelled and the Iron Man films are now a trilogy.
  • One Disney+ series and a movie are in development that are tied to the Iron Man franchise the series is called: Ironheart and the movie: Armor Wars.
  • The Mandarin (real name Xu Wenwu) eventually got his debut in the MCU movie Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, where he would later be killed by the Dweller in Darkness.


  • 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.
