Is Marvel Studios suddenly going to replace Robert Downey Jr. with this younger actor?

In 2019, we said goodbye to Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame and with that, Robert Downey Jr. There were rumors that he would return in Black Widow, but that didn’t happen. Now there is some sort of rumor that Marvel Studios is going to recast the actor.

The rumor mill Giant Freakin Robot, a website that can hardly be taken seriously, is now reporting that Downey Jr. will be replaced by another actor. And that is, a younger actor who is to play a young Tony Stark.

Joseph Quinn as Tony Stark in MCU?
The rumor was probably created based on fan reports. After all, actor Joseph Quinn, known for the character Eddie Munson from Netflix’s Stranger Things series, looks rather like Downey Jr.

The website GFR believes that Marvel Studios wants the younger actor to play a young Stark in the upcoming new Avengers films Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars which were announced a little while ago.

Clearly a grain of salt for now, but entertaining.
