While the actor could still make sporadic appearances on upcoming Disney + series, it’s sadly a distant possibility, and that has become clear from his most recent interview.

Through a style talk mentoring From the professional platform LinkedIn, Robert Downey Jr. revealed his work plans … and none of them contemplate the MCU:

“I have great and fun things to come. And the way I’m going to do them, is that I’m not going to lie around and sit in my trailer anymore (…) I’ll be at Zooms and hook up and have dinners after work … and call overseas when I drive to. 6 am”

It is worth mentioning that when it comes to filmography, Downey Jr. has a full schedule. On the one hand, there is the series Perry Mason from HBO, and in the “Netflix corner” is the project Sweet Tooth.
