Robert Downey Jr Wants to Hang Up His 'Iron Man' Armor 'Before It's Embarrassing'.

Three Golden Globe wins and two Oscar nominations aside, Robert Downey Jr is known by most as the superhero with the red suit of armor, Iron Man. But Downey is now wondering if it’s time to call it a day and move on.

"Everyone says to me it’s like a glove that fits so well," Downey told News Corp Australian Network this month. "I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base. I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven Marvel movies I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time. I just want to hang up my jersey before it's embarrassing."

Not counting Tony Stark's appearance in a number of films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the three "Iron Man" films alone have grossed north of $2.4 billion. That's a success that may be hard to walk away from for most actors, but Downey sees it differently.
