During his dialog with Robert Downey Jr. on The Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan will get proper all the way down to the query on each MCU fan’s thoughts. 

He asks Downey, “Is the door to Iron Man totally closed because I don’t believe it is. You guys can go through time now. There was, you know, you’ve already opened up that door.”

Downey replies, “Let me ask you a question. If I picked the jersey back up and put it on, wouldn’t you feel a little bit like, aw crap.”

Downy later provides, “To me, starting up again is off the table. I feel like I’ve done all I can with that character. There would have to be a super compelling argument and a series of events that made it obvious. But the other thing is, I want to do other stuff.”

However, it appears as if Joe Rogan might simply envision Iron Man coming again. He tells Downey, “If they opened up this time machine and you popped out, I just imagine the moment where everyone goes f*cking crazy. It would be amazing! I would love that, but I would also love you hanging it up.”

Certainly, it is a massive change for Robert Downey Jr. The star has been working with the MCU for years now, and together with his position full, absolutely issues shall be completely different. 

“Look it’s just, it’s 2020 and I’m not an OCD guy but I keep thinking — see clearly. See clearly even if your vision is going. And it’s difficult because I feel like we all just get buffeted by feelings or ego or fears or little chips of resentments, or intuitions that are tied to something higher but you think is out of your reach,” Downey started explaining to Joe Rogan. 

The star continued, “So it was a perfect time and I got to go have dinner with a bunch of the Marvel folks last night, and kind of just have a little bit of extra closure. … And I was like woah, this was kind of like, a really big cultural thing.”

“We were there, experiencing it all when it came out, and then we see each other on the red carpet, and it’s not intimate, and we kind of hadn’t really had a chance to do nothing and just hang out,” he defined. “Last night kind of felt like closing the circle on things a bit.”

Unfortunately for Robert Downey Jr., his latest foray into different initiatives with Dolittle didn’t precisely pan out. 

The movie grossed $29 million on opening weekend, ultimately spelling out a loss for Universal Studios. Scott Mendelson wrote in Forbes, “There’s a lot that went wrong with Dolittle, but chief among them was spending MCU money (and giving Downey Jr. an MCU paycheck) for playing anyone other than Iron Man.”

James Grebey of GQ experiences, “Downey’s efficiency in Dolittle was broadly criticized, particularly his accent, which appeared to float uneasily from a tortured stab at one thing vaguely Welsh to an (unintentional?) Jamaican timbre. Still, it feels unfair to however all the blame for Dolittle’s disastrous reception at Downey’s toes.”

Now, followers are questioning if Dolittle bombing will imply a return to the MCU for Robert Downey Jr., however based mostly on his look on The Joe Rogan Experience, it doesn’t seem to be it.
