Iron Man: Mark Wahlberg for Tony Stark Role?

iron-man-3-teaser-poster Oh No – he didn’t just say that – did he!?!?

Mark Wahlberg would like to step into Tony Stark’s shoes in Iron Man 4: “I would like to take over the Iron Man franchise for Robert Downey, [but] it’s one of those things where I kind of like playing real people, [so] I’ve never been asked,” said Wahlberg. “Once I was kind of being talked about for the Robin role in Batman [Forever]… somebody dodged a bullet!”

Downey Jr is confirmed to reprise the role of Iron Man for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Avengers 3, but nothing solo beyond this year’s Iron Man 3 has been confirmed.

Now let’s do the maths:

1) Marvel can’t seriously conceive doing a sole Iron Man film without RDJ, while they’ve still got him in tow for the Avengers movies. Better they focus on bringing on new characters and write a new contract with Downey for multiple cameos (like Fox do with Jackman / Wolverine), or let Rhodey step into the red & gold suit for a while?

2) Mark Wahlberg – no, seriously – Mark Wahlberg… can anyone imagine just how much worse Batman Forever could have been if Marky Mark had got the gig?!
