Jeff Goldblum has hinted Robert Downey Jr might be reprising his Iron Man role in Marvel Studios' upcoming animated series What If...?. Downey Jr ended his stint as the beloved superhero with summer blockbuster Avengers: Endgame after playing the part in several Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films such as Iron Man, The Avengers, Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Goldblum, who played The Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok, said an episode of the series will feature his character, Taika Waititi's Korg and Iron Man, which Downey Jr will be voicing.
"I played the part again a couple of days ago. I went to the Disney Studios and I recorded The Grandmaster's voice for an episode of a show that's gonna be on Disney+ that's called 'What If...?'," the veteran actor told BuzzFeed in a video.

"It's an animated version of all the characters we know and love from Marvel and this episode included the Grandmaster and Iron Man, so Robert Downey Jr will do a voice for that, and Korg... Taika Waititi had already recorded his voice for that, so yeah, for a couple hours I enjoyed doing that," he added.

What If...? is based on a past Marvel Comics series that featured out-of-continuity stories with unusual team-ups or alternate versions of previous tales. Westworld star Jeffrey Wright is voicing The Watcher, an extraterrestrial being who narrates the series. It will premiere on Disney+ in 2021.
