Robert Downey Jr. to Reprise Iron Man Role for New Disney+ Series

Epic Stream reports that it has been confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will be reprising his role as Iron Man for a new Disney+ series.

The confirmation comes from Thor: Ragnarok star Jeff Goldblum, who recently told Buzzfeed that he has been working on Marvel’s What If …? series. According to Goldblum, he’s not the only one who has recorded some dialogue with Downey.

“I went to the Disney studios and I recorded the Grandmaster’s voice for an episode of a show that’s gonna be on Disney+ that’s called What If…?,” Goldblum said. “It’s an animated version of all the characters we know and love from Marvel and this episode included the Grandmaster and Iron Man, so Robert Downey will do a voice for that, and Korg. Taika Waititi had already recorded his voice for that, so yeah, for a couple hours I enjoyed doing that.”

What If…? is expected to air on Disney+ in mid-2021.
