Robert Downey Jr. is changing his tune after hinting in March that another Iron Man film is not on the cards. Feeling that he was getting too old to play Tony Stark, he had said, “I will be turning 50 by the time I promote the movie.”

However, during a recent visit to the Captain America: Civil War sets, the actor shared that another Iron Man film is not entirely off the table, reported Entertainment Weekly.  “I feel like I could do one more,” he said.

Downey appears in Civil War as Tony Stark, a role he has now played for nearly a decade (the first film in Marvel’s Iron Man series was released in 2008). Combined, the three Iron Man films have grossed $2.4 billion worldwide.

Civil War star Chris Evans added that Downey’s portrayal of Stark in the upcoming film is darker than what fans are used to. “He [Stark] always danced to the beat of his own drum but [now] he’s feeling a little guilty of the actions the Avengers have taken, and the collateral damage we have caused. He feels he is responsible,” Evans said.

Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters on May 6. The film’s cast includes actors Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen and Sebastian Stan among others.
