Those who had their dreams crushed about another Iron Man film can breathe easier now: Robert Downey Jr. will be donning the iron suit again for Captain America 3.

The best part? This time, he’ll be playing the villain.

Based on the comic book’s Civil War storyline, Captain America 3 will feature familiar superheroes butting heads while Tony Stark attempts to have Captain America arrested. It’s been confirmed that the film will also star Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner.

This latest deal marks another score for Robert Downey Jr., who once again earned the title of highest paid actor this year. It’s been rumored that the A-lister will make – wait for it – a minimum of $40 million, with a possible bonus if Captain America 3 outperforms its predecessor.
