Marvel fans rejoice! If you were having sleepless nights over the fact that you would not see your
favourite Tony Stark, aka Iron Man anymore, fret not. Five months after Tony Stark, played by actor
Robert Downey Jr, sacrificed himself for the good of mankind in the 2019 film Avengers: Endgame,
Marvel sources have claimed that he is prepping to return as the iconic superhero Iron Man.
Turns out that the soon-to-be launched new streaming service Disney+ will allow more Marvel stories to
be told. Fox News reported that Downey Jr will reprise his role for a new Disney+ spinoff. According to
We Got This Covered, Disney bosses are prepping for a series based on Ironheart, the teenage genius
who continues Stark’s legacy in the comic books.
For his part, Downey Jr appeared at a gala with Ironheart comic book writer Eve Ewing earlier this year,
where he voiced his support for Ironheart becoming Iron Man’s replacement in the MCU.
Ewing said: “The real story here is that @RobertDowneyJr said publicly in a room full of people that Iron heart should be in the MCU.
Meanwhile, Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo recently admitted that there isn’t a single thing he’d
change about the film’s ending.
