Marvel Studios Refuses to Convey Iron Man Again: Tony Stark is lifeless and that is our story
Nobody ever really left, especially in the world of comics. But for now, at least, Tony Stark is good and really dead. According to Victoria Alonso, executive vice president of Marvel Studios, who has no plans to revive Ironman after Robert Downey Jr.’s swan song in Avengers: Endgame last year.
As fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe certainly know, Iron Man sacrificed himself at the end of Avengers: Endgame to stop Thanos and save the universe. However, given the popularity of the character and the nature of the universe, the question remains whether or not Robert Downey Jr.’s days at the MCU are really numbered. Victoria Alonso recently made it clear in an interview with a Spanish publication that Tony Stark is no longer.
“Tony Stark is dead. And that’s our story. Resurrection I don’t know, I don’t know how we’d do it. It seems to me that the story of Tony Stark is told by us. Hence, he left his legacy, Who for example he’s in Spider-Ma because Peter Parker was the wrong son, so you see a lot of what Tony Stark would have been in Peter Parker, and it seems to me that you see that all the time in how a person affects him others. But no, at the moment we have no plans. ”
The interview was translated from Spanish and is therefore imperfect. Anyway, it’s not difficult to get the point. Iron Man introduced us to the MCU in 2008 and RDJ quickly became the face of that universe. For over a decade, moviegoers flocked to watch Tony Stark and his Avengers on the big screen, generating billions at the box office. But all good things have to come to an end. Tony Stark found a fitting and meaningful ending in Endgame. Bringing him back would only serve to tarnish what has been achieved.
However, there are ways a new version of Iron Man could appear down the line. For one, Doctor Strange will open up the idea of the Marvel multiverse in the Multiversum of Madness. That said, we could theoretically get a new Tony Stark in an alternate universe or something like that. There were also rumors of an Ironheart film in development that would bring in Riri Williams as a superhero taking on the Iron Man coat.
Robert Downey Jr. has since stated that he’s done with Marvel and moved on to other projects. The actor is currently trying to get Sherlock Holmes 3 off the ground and hopes he can turn this into a cinematic universe of Sherlock Holmes. Downey is slated to appear in Black Widow. Since the film is set between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, that wouldn’t get in the way of continuity. This message comes to us via Clarin.
