Ted and We Own The Night star Marky Mark Wahlberg would love to step into Tony Stark’s expensive, vomit-flecked shoes in Iron Man 4, according to Yahoo!.

“I would like to take over the Iron Man franchise for Robert Downey, [but] it’s one of those things where I kind of like playing real people, [so] I’ve never been asked,” said Wahlberg, who definitely has the snark levels required for the self-aggradising billionaire playboy powerhouse.

“Once I was kind of being talked about for the Robin role in Batman [Forever]… somebody dodged a bullet!”

Downey Jr is confirmed to reprise the role of Iron Man for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Avengers 3, but so far this year’s Iron Man 3 looks like it could be the star’s final solo outing.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron is due in cinemas 2015. Iron Man 3 is released 9 September 2013. Pre-order it now on DVD for £12, Blu-ray for £16, or Blu-ray 3D for £20.50 from Amazon.co.uk.
