I work in a used game store and I try my best to let parents know what they're buying for their kids. Sometimes it works out great.

This comes as welcomed, truly exciting news. Tracing back to 2014 Downey Jr. disclosed to Variety:

"There isn’t one in the pipe. No, there’s no plan for a fourth Iron Man.” And that has been Downey’s stance in most of his public interviews. It seemed as if the Iron Man solo films with RDJ in the lead as Tony Stark were over. But it seems like that may have changed sometime recently."

Well well, now we've an encouraging update via a segment Robert Downey Jr. was filmed on during Nightline. It's short and sweet, clear, and to the point:

"I feel like I could do one more."

Alright, let's build on that RDJ. This is the first time Downey Jr. has spoken on record about being willing to do Iron Man 4

Marvel provided the following statement to Mashable in response to the heated speculation over potential whitewashing of Tilda Swinton's 'The Ancient One' character in Doctor Strange:

"Marvel has a very strong record of diversity in its casting of films and regularly departs from stereotypes and source material to bring its MCU to life. The Ancient One is a title that is not exclusively held by any one character, but rather a moniker passed down through time, and in this particular film the embodiment is Celtic. We are very proud to have the enormously talented Tilda Swinton portray this unique and complex character alongside our richly diverse cast."

Doctor Strange screenwriter C. Robert Cargill provided the following reasoning for his changing of the character for the film:

"He originates from Tibet, so if you acknowledge that Tibet is a place and that he's Tibetan, you risk alienating one billion people who think that that’s bullshit and risk the Chinese government going, 'Hey, you know one of the biggest film-watching countries in the world? We’re not going to show your movie because you decided to get political,'" said Cargill. "If we decide to go the other way and cater to China in particular and have him be in Tibet… if you think it’s a good idea to cast a Chinese actress as a Tibetan character, you are out of your damn fool mind and have no idea what the f*ck you’re talking about."

What do you make of all this?

And of course the trailer, in case you need a refresh on that Doctor Strange hype:
