What is the release date for Iron Man 4? The Iron Man films helped to create the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but thanks to the death of Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) in Avengers: Endgame, the franchise appears to be doomed. In comics, however, the golden rule is that heroes don’t stay dead and can be replaced. Here’s all we know about the Iron Man 4 MCU movie’s premiere date, timing, and how to watch it.
What is the release date and timing for Iron Man 4?
Iron Man 4 has yet to be confirmed, so if it happens, it will most likely not be released until 2024-2025, while there are a handful of huge Iron Man spin-off projects for Disney Plus that will almost certainly introduce a new Iron Man to the MCU.
The heroic death of Tony Stark/Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame, in which he wiped Thanos and his followers from existence, appeared to put a stop to the prospect of more Iron Man sequels, but death is rarely the end in Marvel comics. Even if Robert Downey Jr. doesn’t reprise his role as Tony Stark — he was reported to play Black Widow but didn’t — the name “Iron Man” may be passed along to someone else. In Captain America 4, Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) will take over from Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and the same could happen in Iron Man 4.
Iron Man 4 will almost definitely be based on one of the Iron Man-related Disney Plus episodes, Ironheart or Armor Wars, which are both planned to debut on the streaming service in the coming years. Because Riri Williams/Ironheart (Dominique Thorne) is popularly considered as Iron Man’s heir after Tony Stark’s death in the comics, a “Iron Man 4” film could feature her instead.
What is the best way to view the new Iron Man film?
If an Iron Man 4 film is made, it will most likely be released in theatres first, then streamed on Disney Plus after 45 days, similar to Shang-Chi and Eternals.
