He expects there may be something...
In an interview with EW.com, Robert Downey continued to talk up Iron Man 3, hinting that there may be cameos in the film.
On if any other Marvel characters will appear in Iron Man 3: "The whole Avengers thing [with $1.5 billion in global box office was such a relief and such a confirmation of [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige's vision for this all along. As Kevin has put it, the next step after that is to bring in someone like Shane Black and – without pretending that the Avengers don't exist – find a way to go back to a kind of re-investigation of Tony's world, which he thought would be, one, fun for the audience and, two, would rock in a different way than The Avengers. But we can't help it — everywhere you look now in every Marvel movie there are opportunities where certain new pals of his could be useful. So they're in the atmosphere, so to speak, but I wouldn't expect to see them on the ground in this one."
On how he makes time for other projects between his Marvel and Sherlock Holmes work: "Yes, they do and basically we're going to head in that direction for most of 2013. And the nice thing about Marvel's kind of unprecedented success is they are already able to do what Warners had done along, which is avoid that approach of beginning [a project by picking a release] date and working backwards from there. And by avoiding that you get a schedule where there's more space. And, also, the smart money always says, Let's wait a little longer and do a little better. When I first thought of what my world would be like if every other year I had to put out a product for more than one franchise, the thought was: Well how will I ever get to do anything else? But neither seems to be hurrying toward their deaths and still there's space that allows the rest."
On the possibilities of film: "Yeah, definitely. You know seeing Denzel [Washington's Oscar nominated role] in Flight and [the film's director, Robert] Zemeckis being back in live-action mode I was thinking how many great opportunities there for us fortunate actor/movie types. There's an explosion of possibilities."
