Robert Downey Jr. Joining ‘Captain America 3’ as a Villain

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. Iron Man seems to be following that line of reasoning from The Dark Knight as he may be appearing in to Captain America 3. Tony Stark’s Iron Man will “play a key role” in the Civil War storyline from Marvel’s comics which will start a new phase of movies from the studio.

In Captain America 3, Stark will be pit against Steve Rogers as they fight over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities.

Stark is for the program. Rogers is against it saying it threatens civil liberties. This is the political superhero thriller we’ve been waiting for.

Variety reports Robert Downey Jr. is on the verge of signing and that the role will give RDJ a new take on his Tony Stark character.
