Report: Robert Downey Jr. On Set of Captain America: Brave New World

Report: Robert Downey Jr. on Set of Captain America: Brave New World

Not a whole lot is known about the plot of the upcoming Captain America: Brave New World. However, a recent piece of information suggests that actor Robert Downey Jr. was around the set of filming.

In a status post on LinkedIn from last week, Nawar Shora — a keynote speaker — shared a photo of himself around the set of the film while they were filming in Washington, D.C. According to Shora, he spoke with a few of the security guards, who mentioned that Robert Downey Jr. had actually been on set the night prior, and that everyone was “driving all sorts of supercars.”

Currently, it’s unclear just what Downey Jr. would have been on doing set for the film. With production having officially wrapped last week, it’s possible he was just visiting some old friends. The mention of supercars also lines up with Downey’s love of cars (he even has a Discovery+ show about restoring classic cars).

However, it’s also possible the actor could be reprising his iconic role as Tony Stark/Iron Man in some capacity. That might be difficult with Stark having died at the end of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, but with the Marvel Cinematic Universe now branching out into the world of the multiverse, anything seems possible.

Thankfully for fans, they won’t have to wait too long, as Captain America: Brave New World is set to release next year on July 26, 2024.
