Downey may be back in new ‘Iron Man’ film

Robert Downey Jr hasn’t ruled out another ‘Iron Man’ film — and who could blame him? He’s been named as Hollywood’s top earner — for the second time.

ROBERT DOWNEY JR has said he hasn’t ruled out another Iron Man sequel.

The star first played the role of Tony Stark in 2008’s Iron Man and reprised his role in Iron Man 2 and 3, as well as the Avengers movies.

Now he has told Entertainment Weekly that there is a chance he could take on the role in a fourth movie.

“It’s down to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter and Disney to come to us with what the proposal is, and that’s on us to agree or disagree,” he said.

“When things are going great, there’s a lot of agreement.”

He said of the success of Iron Man and the Avengers: “Right now, this has just been swell, hasn’t it? This has been a really good one and it feels good and we’re having a good time.

“It’s that thing of: Why give up the belt when it feels like you can barely get jabbed?”

But he added cryptically: “Most people are saying that right when they get knocked out... The future is, as usual, uncertain.”

-Glee star Naya Rivera (inset) has married actor Ryan Dorsey — her boyfriend of just three months — in Mexico.

The actress, who broke off her engagement to rapper Big Sean in April, tied the knot in front of a small group of close family in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, People reports.

-EastEnders star Diane Parish has defended the soap’s glum reputation, saying nobody would watch if it was always cheerful.

The actress plays Denise Fox in the show and said a bit of misery was necessary to keep things interesting in the BBC One programme.

She told The Sun: “There is no drama if everybody is having a lovely time, singing happy songs.”

Denise has had her fair share of upset in Albert Square — she was abused by ex-husband Owen Turner (Lee Ross), her short-lived marriage to Kevin Wicks (Phil Daniels) ended in his death, she divorced Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet) who was imprisoned for murder and she is now trapped in a loveless engagement to Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt).

-MEL B has admitted she would love to see the Spice Girls back together for another reunion.

Scary Spice told Jimmy Fallon that she was the one driving the next reunion, but hinted that she could have her work cut out trying to convince Mel C, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham to do it.

The new X Factor judge was being interviewed on The Tonight Show in the US when she revealed how much she would like another crack at being part of the girl group.
