Probably most viewers, not only comic book fans, have already noticed that Marvel has not had a good run lately. For several years now, the new productions have not kept the level known from the first MCU movies, including the much-loved Iron Man. Promptly, the studio's decision-makers have decided to to take a series of corrective measures, and it was unofficially rumored that the franchise may see the return of the original Avengers cast.

Kevin Faige, one of the studio's executives was recently asked about whether Robert Downey Jr rejoining the MCU as Iron Man is possible. The filmmaker, however, dispelled the rumors. In the near future we will not see the said actor in MCU.

"No? Is that an answer? [...] The truth is we haven't even talked about it. We are working on a project with Scarlett. We love Robert, he is part of the family. But the question of him returning? We'll see."

Feige thus revealed that although Downey Jr's return has not been discussed at all, Marvel has re-established cooperation with Scarlett Johansson.. Recall that until a few months ago, the relationship between the actress and the studio was not among the best, and the star even sued the studio for not fulfilling the terms of her contract.

The conflict has apparently been resolved, and Johansson will once again contribute to the superhero franchise. However, it may be that the star will not appear in the new movies. While accepting an acting role is not out of the question, it after all, it seems most likely that the artist will take on the role of producer for an upcoming Marvel project. It may be about a show focused on the further fate of Yelena Belova, the adopted sister of Natasha Romanov.
