In the past few weeks, RDJ had confessed he wants to see Ironheart be introduced into the MCU phase 4. A few days ago, Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland too showed his interest in seeing Ironheart in the next phase of MCU. If Ironheart does get introduced, RDJ could return as an AI. As per a report in We Got This Covered, sources have the door open of RDJ's return in an Ironheart movie, if and when it happens. The actor could reprise his Tony Stark ego as artificial intelligence. 

"This is, of course, in keeping with comic book lore, as a facsimile of Shellhead was created on several occasions, should he not be around in the flesh. It’s important to note that this isn’t a sure thing just yet, but it is indeed being discussed at the studio," the website wrote. 

While it is to see if or not RDJ returns in MCU phase 4, Kevin Feige recently said that his character will not be forgotten in future movies. Speaking to Comicbook.com, Feige said, "There are other things to avoid in [Spider-Man: Far From Home], now that you’ve seen it, that we didn’t want to give away in the press. But its position within the world, and dealing with his emotional journey post the death of Tony Stark, we held off until after Endgame, obviously…. Will Tony’s death be felt in future movies [though]? Oh, yes."
