Here is a perfect example of how a lot of websites will take one line in a statement and turn it into absolute BS clickbait just to fool and lie to Marvel fans who can’t accept that Tony Stark died at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
In an interview with Extra about the new Doolittle movie, they asked Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan about if he’d ever return to Marvel. The problem is, every website is taking the first thing RDJ said and completely ignoring the rest…
This is how it went:
Robert: “Anything could happen, I’m really enjoying…”
Susan: “Oh my god, what a headline that little comment is going to be…”
Robert: “As far as I’m concerned I hung up my guns and I’m good to let it go. I also think Marvel is on this journey now of they’re trying a bunch of other stuff, and you know, I’m excited for them to see how all that goes and it’s hard to project. But we got a bunch of other stuff in mind.”
It really seems like he’s done with Iron Man there, and the “anything could happen” comment seems to be a “never say never” sort of thing where he’s leaving the door open to a cameo or something, not that he’s returning to Iron Man.
I also find it funny how they specifically pointed out how that “anything could happen” comment would be spun into headlines while everyone ignores what he really said. Sites who are spinning his comments into something they aren’t are pandering to one small segment of the fanbase just to get attention from them.
