Iron Man wouldn't work without RDJ right now. It would be a while for me to settle for someone else.

i do not agree, RDJ made ironman like wolverine is to x men, while wolverine is a natural standout in the comics, ironman was always behind thor, cap and hulk, but in the films he is more or less the front man thanks to the impressive portrayal of RDJ. in my opinion he is the most irreplaceable character and mark wahlberg would not even be convincing in playing that character. the other cast members are more replaceable like chris evans to channing tatum or samuel l jackson to idris elba .

It will work without Robert Downey Jr., but they need give the character a rest for a few years.
