‘The Omen’ Prequel Film Will Introduce You to ‘The First Omen’

The First Omen isn’t the greatest title — it’s as if it was concocted by an obnoxious internet commenter who only speaks in all-caps.

For the last couple of years, Robert Downey Jr. has said that there are no plans for a fourth Iron Man movie — and he hasn’t appeared to be interested in making another one, to be honest. And that fact is seemingly supported by his Marvel contract, which does not include another solo outing beyond Iron Man 3.
