Robert Downey, Jr. is set to return as Iron Man in the upcoming What If…? animated series. Jeff Goldblum confirmed the news on a Q&A video for Buzzfeed (via Uproxx).

“I went to the Disney Studios and I recorded the Grandmaster’s voice for an episode of a show that’s going to be on Disney+ called What If…? where 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 will do a voice in that. And Korg, Taika Waititi, had already recorded his voice for that. So yeah, I enjoyed it for a couple of hours. I enjoyed doing that again. So the Grandmaster is well.”
