“I don’t think there’s going to be [an Iron Man 4]” said Paltrow, who plays Tony Stark’s secretary turned love interest Pepper Pots in the films. “I think we’re done with Iron Man,” she told GeekNation

Paltrow’s assessment tallies with that of Robert Downey Jr, who plays Iron Man and his alter ego Stark. The star recently hinted at the end of the franchise, too, saying: “How many genre movies can I do? How many follow-ups to a successful follow-up are actually fun?” before adding, “Right now I don’t have a contract to do anything.”

So it seems that’s that for Iron Man, then. Apart from The Avengers 2, obviously…
