To which he inadvertently replied by saying that Robert will return to voice Iron Man in one of Marvel’s What If? episodes, which will stream or Disney+. "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 said the video, adding, "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."
