Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her chat show in the US, he was asked straight out if a fourth movie could happen - and gave an unexpected response.
He said: "I know there's going to be a bunch more Marvel movies, and they have big ideas of how to do it best, and we're in the middle of negotiations."
Ellen then interreptued him to comment: "So yes?"
To which he replied: "Okay, yes. Yes."
But Marvel bosses may have to wait to secure his services to play the iconic superhero again - because he's also just confirmed another big project.
Asked about the status of a possible third Sherlock Holmes movie during a Reddit Q&A sesh, the star let the cat out of the bag.
"Yes, we have a Sherlock 3 in development," he revealed. "We want it to be the best of the series, so that's a pretty tall order."
