Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. confirmed that "Iron Man 4" is definitely happening. After that exciting revelation, nothing much was said about "Iron Man 4" which opened a lot of whispers and speculations of what's in store for all of us in the fourth installment of the highly-hyped Marvel film.

According to the the Marvel Comics, Tony Stark will be impressed with a 15-year-old student named Riri Williams after he learned that the young girl has reverse-engineered one of his old armors. Because of that, Tony Stark will be lending his Iron Man status to Riri Williams.

That concept is absolutely unexpected and intriguing, but are the "Iron Man" fans willing to give Robert Downey Jr. up to a young unknown teenager? Although this storyline is from the Marvel Comics and not from the actual script of "Iron Man 4," with the buzz of this twist is getting, Marvel Cinematic Universe may actually give this direction a go in "Iron Man 4."

While the fate and storyline of "Iron Man 4" are still unknown, MITbloggers gave everyone a glimpse of Riri Williams as Iron Man in a new clip. The 3-minute video showed the young student building her very own Tony Stark's red medal suit and even gave it a test drive (fly). Although there is a big possibility that "Iron Man 4" may include Riri Williams to the installment, not all are on board with the idea. Many Marvel fans are still not ready to let go of Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) as the main protagonist of the "Iron Man" franchise.

Even though fans are still hoping for Robert Downey Jr.'s character to be the lead of "Iron Man 4," it seems that the actor may be too busy to play Tony Stark. A report claims that Robert Downey Jr. is set to reprise his role in "Sherlock Holmes 3" while there is no official update about  the "Iron Man 4" release date yet.
