Robert Downey Jr. has hinted this could be his last Iron Man movie.

The talented actor will reprise the famous role for the eighth time in this summer's Avengers: Infinity War.

He told News Corp Australia Network: "It's this cyclical thing."

"I could have said when the first Avengers came out: 'It's never going to get any better than that. Everybody stop.' But to me it's always about people and opportunities, like the Russos Avengers directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, who I adore."

Critics and fans believe the actor was born to play the part that he first introduced back in 2008 – raking in hundreds of millions at the box-office playing the fabled character ever since.

He added: "Everyone says to me it's like a glove that fits so well. I have to start over every time but I am starting over with a pretty solid base.

"I just never want to blow it for the last six or seven MCU movies I have done by dropping the ball because I decided to go do it one more time," he continued "I just want to hang up my jersey before it's embarrassing."
