It looks like there's a huge possibility that there is going to be an "Iron Man 4" movie, but way in the future.

Marvel president Kevin Feige hinted that another Iron Man movie could be in the works but not really anytime soon.

"Well, if I believe Tony Stark to be James Bond, then there would be and Iron Man 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9... What is James Bond on at? Twenty?....[Robert Downey Jr.'s return] is the question," Feige said, according to SlashFilm. "And again, that's a question we won't have to face until after Avengers 3. So that's at least five or six years away."

Five or six years away is 2018 or 2019, so that definitely is a long ways away, but fans would wait a lifetime to see Robert Downey Jr. play Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man again.

But this news is very similar to that of rumors of a 2016 release date for the highly anticipated film.

Ironman4.net "confirmed" that "Iron Man 4" would release in theaters on May 6, 2016.

"The Iron Man 4 project has already been confirmed by key players in the Iron Man franchise, but it is even more exciting that the release date may now be official," the website said. "Everyone knows super hero movies are big business nowadays in Hollywood, so it should come as no surprise that the big wigs at Marvel are gearing up to bring Tony Stark back to the big screen for a fourth installment in the Iron Man series of films."

Feige sang a little different tune back in July when "Iron Man 4" rumors were running rapid [and they still are].

Feige told Collider at Comic-Con 2013:

I've said it before and it wasn't negotiating tactics.  I believe Tony Stark is as strong a character as Batman.  We're about to head into our fifth or sixth Batman - however, you wanna look at it - James Bond, etc.  So, there will absolutely be future Tony Starks and future Iron Mans.  Who makes those movies, and when those movies are made, who knows?  I don't know.  But, the notion with Robert's contract in The Avengers 2 & 3, is to allow new characters.  Part of what we love about The Avengers is the shifting roster.  That's what's fun about the comic book movies.  You shift them up.  So, certainly that was a lot of the thought process that went into it.
