But for Downey Jr. fans, the good news doesn't end there. The actor will also be reprising another famous character of his, Sherlock Holmes, in what will be the third instalment of the detective movie series.

The last Sherlock Holmes movie was 2011's "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows", a follow up to 2009's "Sherlock Holmes.

While fans wait for "Sherlock Holmes 3" and "Spider-Man: Homecoming", the latter which will be released in 2017, catch Downey Jr. as Iron Man first in "Captain America: Civil War", releasing on 28 April 2016.
