There are rumors circulating that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is facing challenges due to recent movie disappointments. Some reports suggest that iconic characters like Iron Man and Captain America might be making a return.
It’s been four years since the emotional death of Robert Downey Jr.’s beloved Iron Man character, leaving a lasting impact on Marvel fans. His departure was a pivotal moment in the MCU.
According to Variety, Marvel Studios has released the final trailer for ‘The Marvels,’ which hints at the return of fan-favorite characters Iron Man and Captain America. If this turns out to be true, Marvel has an opportunity to reintegrate Robert Downey Jr.’s character back into the universe without causing too much dissatisfaction.
The Multiverse storyline, while still rooted in Thanos’ legacy, has introduced various ways for characters to reappear in the MCU. This includes alternate versions of characters that are virtually identical to the originals. Bringing back Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man could be achieved relatively straightforwardly.
One significant challenge in bringing back the character of Tony Stark is that it might diminish the impact of his sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame. However, if Marvel chooses to resurrect Iron Man, Loki’s newfound ability to manipulate time-travel could potentially allow him to visit a timeline where Tony Stark is still alive and formidable.
