Avengers 2 “Age of Ultron” shouldn’t mark the end for some of the Marvel characters on the silver screen, Robert Downey Jr. has said.

Downey Jr., who plays Iron Man, said that Black Widow should get a movie.

“It would be kind of more appropriate for a character that already was like a Black Widow. It just seems like whatever Scarlett does people want to go see it…” he said, according to MTV. He was referring to Scarlett Johansson, who plays Black Widow.

He added: “The funny thing is honestly at this point everyone deserves a franchise. I think Jeremy Renner is – when folks see the The Avengers: Age Of Ultron he’s just a rockstar, a badass. And Ruffalo is pumped. He does great. I’d like to hear them talk even more seriously about a Hulk franchise, because that’s been one of the toughest ones to get right. But I’m sure that my parent company is feeling expansive and bold after the summer they’ve had.”

According to USA Today, Downey Jr. elaborated on that statement.

“I think that the interesting thing particularly after Guardians with Zoe (Saldana), (or) even from the first Iron Man where Pepper was kind of this really – to me the Iron Man franchise would never have taken off without (Gwyneth) Paltrow. There’s something about her that grounded the story. She’s not your typical lady in a superhero movie, and then by Iron Man 3 she’s swallowing serums and putting on suits and kicking (butt) and all that stuff,” he said.
