With that being said, this latest rumor may or may not be true. According to RadarOnline.com, Robert Downey Jr. is trying to get his friends Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster cast in an Avengers movie. It’s unclear if Downey Jr. is wanting to recruit them for Avengers: Age of Ultron or not. Downey Jr. is signed on for at least two more Avengers film, so he could always be trying to get them in Avengers 3.
According to RadarOnline’s sources, Downey Jr. wants to help Gibson and Foster achieve similar success to what he has had in the last couple of years. Reportedly, bringing Foster into the Marvel fold wouldn’t be a problem. However, Gibson’s past controversies could be problematic with him landing a role.
