While we all shed tears knowing that actor Robert Dowey Jr.’s character of Tony Stark sadly passed away at the end of “Avengers: Endgame” which certainly would not leave much room for a comeback, however, Downey Jr. says he is definitely open to returning should the right opportunity arrive.
It is possible that we could very well see Robert Downey Jr. return at some point during Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), as during a recent gala celebration in Chicago, Downey Jr, said he would like to see “Ironheart” become a feature film. This would then see Tony Stark brought back to life.
If “Ironheart” were to be made it would have to take place prior to the events that went down in “Avengers: Endgame” unless filmmakers took the route of telling the story through a series of flashbacks and lead character Riri Williams would be dealing with the tragic loss of her mentor.
The young comic hero meets the inventor as she carries on her engineering studies aiming to upgrade Stark’s work by creating her own Iron Man armor. After which Tony Stark takes her under his wing. Even when he dies, Riri manages to preserve his precious advice through the hologram made by artificial intelligence. It then follows her all along with his adventures. It is a story that could definitely be adapted and of course, despite the fact that Downey Jr. has stated numerous times that he is retiring the Iron Man character for good, he could end up lending his voice and likeness to a few scenes.
This is definitely promising for fans who have been petitioning Marvel to have their beloved character resurrected and Eve Ewing, the creator of Ironheart, quickly spread the news on Twitter. Plus, the truth is that his return as a hologram would make sense after his futurist goodbye message in Endgame. We will have to wait and see!
Do you think MCU Phase 4 should include “Ironheart”? What do you think of a Tony Stark comeback via hologram?
