Marvel Cinematic Universe fans kissed Robert Downey Jr goodbye in Avengers: Endgame. The actor bid farewell to the iconic Iron Man aka Tony Stark after 11 years of his MCU journey. Fans witnessed Tony’s death in Avengers: Endgame and there was only one line on the internet post that, “I love you 3000.”
After the death of Iron Man, Marvel became a tragedy for some time. It was after Spider-Man: Far From Home, that we were able to regain the emotions for Marvel. Everybody till date mourns the death of the Godfather. There is nothing we can do to avoid the truth. But now, there is a way that Tony could hold some value in Phase 4.
The theory that you could think about – there are many superheroes that are left standing in the MCU. Many of them have upcoming movies in which they will come back as singular characters. But here is the catch. What if every character had some kind of connection to Iron Man before he died?
These instances could be shown in the coming movies. There is only one way to figure it out. We would first have to examine that whether if the upcoming movies would hold Tony’s prevalence. Nothing is yet confirmed. People can’t seem to move on so easily. Let’s take a very general example.
As per a report in We Got This Covered, RDJ’s might make a return in an Ironheart movie, if and when it happens. The actor could reprise his Tony Stark ego as artificial intelligence.
“This is, of course, in keeping with comic book lore, as a facsimile of Shellhead was created on several occasions, should he not be around in the flesh. It’s important to note that this isn’t a sure thing just yet, but it is indeed being discussed at the studio,” the website wrote.
Talking to Comicbook.com, Kevin Feige said, “There are other things to avoid in [Spider-Man: Far From Home], now that you’ve seen it, that we didn’t want to give away in the press. But its position within the world, and dealing with his emotional journey post the death of Tony Stark, we held off until after Endgame, obviously…. Will Tony’s death is felt in future movies [though]? Oh, yes.”
In the just released, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man grieving the death of Iron Man and trying to move on by going on a school trip to the world mourning the demise of their enigmatic superhero, Iron Man has a strong influence on the film. The makers keep drawing parallels between Peter and Tony, be it through almost a similar hairstyle or Peter inheriting a pair of Tony’s signature sunglasses equipped with EDITH (an acronym for “Even Dead I’m The Hero”). Sony Pictures Entertainment India released the film in India in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on July 4.
