Robert Downey Jr responds to Iron Man cameo rumours in 'Black Widow'

Los Angeles, Jan 18 (PTI) Actor Robert Downey Jr is maintaining ambiguity over his much-talked about appearance in Marvel Studios' 'Black Widow'.

The actor exited the studio's money-minting Marvel Cinematic Universe as Tony Stark aka Iron Man last year with 'Avengers: Endgame'.

However, soon after there were reports that Downey Jr will be making one last appearance as Iron Man in Scarlett Johansson-led 'Black Widow'.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Downey Jr was coy about the reports.

'Right. Great. I mean, it would be nice if they notified me. Forewarned is forearmed. They can do anything now. This could be a deep fake interview for all we know,' the actor responded.

'Black Widow' will feature Johansson as Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, an agent of the fictional spy agency S.H.I.E.L.D and a member of the superhero team, the Avengers.

Directed by Cate Shortland, 'Black Widow' also stars Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and O T Fagbenle. The film is scheduled to be released on May 1. PTI RB RB
