"There were a couple times in Iron Man 3 where our lifeline was we'd call Jon Favreau," Downey Jr told IGN. "[Favreau] reached out to Shane a bunch, particularly in the first Iron Man.

"Then we reached out to JJ Abrams at one point when we were really confused in Act III, and he helped us, too."

Downey Jr recently spoke about his original audition process for the role of Tony Stark, explaining that he believed it was his destiny to win the part.

Black has promised that Iron Man 3 will conclude the trilogy's story, but leaves the door open for further installments should Downey Jr wish to continue playing the role.
