Last week, Jeff Goldblum surprised the internet when the said in a Buzzfeed video that Robert Downey Jr. would return to voice Iron Man in an episode of the Disney+ What If…? series. Now a week later comes a denial about that.
According to El Mayimbe at The Wrap, Goldblum misspoke:
Disney declined to comment, but a week after this article originally published, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap that Goldblum misspoke and Downey will not be either voicing or appearing in “What If?” We will update as new information becomes available.
That seems to be a pretty definitive denial there, that he will not be voicing or appearing in “What If…?“. I’m sure this will be disappointing to fans, but Iron Man did have a fantastic farewell in Avengers: Endgame; and it’s probably best to not lessen that in any way.
