Mel Gibson Would Take Robert Downey Jr. Up On His IRON MAN 4 Directing Offer

You might remember earlier in the year when Downey Jr. was quoted as stating he'd only star in a fourth Iron Man film if his pal Mel Gibson directed it? Well it turns out Mel is game. Find out what he had to say in a video interview with Extra after the jump.

Iconic role: Robert Downey Jr in character as Iron Man in the third film

Robert Downey Jr. may not have been entirely serious when he threw Mel Gibson's name in the ring to direct a fourth Iron Man movie (he later said he had simply made an "offhanded remark to a journalist and friend"), but the troubled Aussie actor/director is more than willing to get behind the camera for it. Extra's Mario Lopez asked Gibson about it at The Mending Kids International Gala in Santa Monica on Saturday.

Gibson when asked if he'd consider the gig: "Of course you know. I'm pretty good at directing…I think I got some statues for it…I think I can do it. I think I'm a better director than actor. I hope somebody gives me an argument on that!" Obviously this is unlikely to happen -- even if Marvel were to move forward with a fourth Iron Man movie -- but it's fun to think about...or is it? Do you think Gibson would be a good fit? Say what you will about the man (and believe me I've probably said it all), but there's no denying his skills as a director.
