There have been so many whispers and speculations regarding "Iron Man 4" but one that has never been confirmed was the film's official release date. Marvel Studios recently shared their Phase 3 movie lineup and "Iron Man 4" was nowhere to be found. It seems like fans has yet to extend their patience to see Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark once again.

Marvel has revealed in their official website the Phase 3 movie lineup where they confirmed that "Ant-Man and the Wasp," and "Black Panther" will debut on 2018 and "Captain Marvel" on 2019. However, there are three movies slated on 2020 which Marvel Studios opted to leave the titles unknown for now.

Many believed that one of those three untitled Marvel Studios films may be "Iron Man 4." If that is indeed the case, then that is three more years of waiting for "Iron Man 4." But just like other rumors regarding the much-awaited fourth installment of Robert Downey Jr.'s Marvel film, this has yet to be verified.

Meanwhile, plot rumors regarding "Iron Man 4" have been making its rounds on the Internet, driving fans into a frenzy. While some "Iron Man 4" rumored storyline were picked up straight from the Marvel Comics, a few are just suggestions and ideas from fans. If Marvel Cinematic Universe will follow the comic book storylines, then we will be seeing Robert Downey Jr. mentoring a young girl named Riri Williams in "Iron Man 4."

As if Tony Stark / Iron Man being replaced by a 15-year-old girl isn't enough, a new report claims that one of his fellow Avengers will be wearing his iconic red metal suit instead. Scarlett Johansson a.k.a Natasha Romanoff a.k.a the Black Widow is set to wear Iron Man's suit in "Iron Man 4," as previously reported by Movie Pilot. This is definitely not the first time that Tony Stark lend his famous suit. But the interesting fact here is that this fueled the rumors that Robert Downey Jr. will play a support or mentor role in "Iron Man 4."

Do you think "Iron Man 4" will be one of those films to be released on 2020? Let us know in the comment section below!
