Tony Stark's rival may have the title role in Captain America: Civil War, but for Robert Downey, Jr., it's just as much an Iron Man sequel.

"In a way it’s 'Cap 3' but for me it’s like my little Iron Man 4 and then it's back to the thing we all recognize,” Downey told USA Today. “Everything pulls over to the side of the road when the thunder of an Avengers thing comes through because that’s how it is until it changes. If it changes."

Whether that means there won't be an official Iron Man 4 is very much up for interpretation. Tony Stark does play a major role in the film, acting as Captain America's chief antagonist. However, Downey tells his fans not to worry - he's not going full villain just yet.

"If we’re going to go there, then we’ve got to save it for my swan song. I would still like to keep a general audience and mildly be in their favor somehow."

Additionally, according to an Australian movie ticket website Event (via ComicBookMovie), the film's runtime is reportedly 2 hours and 26 minutes, which would make it the longest Marvel Studios film yet.

Fans will find out just how dark Tony gets when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters May 6.
