AVENGERS: SECRET WARS Rumored To Bring Robert Downey Jr. Back As Tony Stark/Iron Man AVENGERS: SECRET WARS Rumored To Bring Robert Downey Jr. Back As Tony Stark/Iron Man

We bid a tearful farewell to Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame, but a new rumour suggests Marvel Studios has plans for his Armoured Avenger to make his return in Avengers: Secret Wars...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off in 2008 with Iron Man, and the crazy thing is that there will be some of you reading this who won't have been old enough to watch that in theaters. The point is, the MCU has been around for a long time now, and it was Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark who was there from day one. 

By the time Avengers: Endgame rolled around over a decade later, it was time to bid farewell to his Armoured Avenger. Tony went out a hero, using the Infinity Gauntlet to snap Thanos and his army out of existence. 

Now, though, it's looking like Downey's Iron Man could live to fight another day in Avengers: Secret Wars

According to a reliable scooper (who has been right about a lot in recent years), Marvel Studios plans to bring the actor back as this iconic superhero in the upcoming event movie. 

If that follows the 2015 Multiversal story by Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic, it will take place in a new reality that's unlike anything we've seen before. As a result, it's not outside the realm of possibility that new world will have an Iron Man, though whether Downey will play a Tony Variant akin to the hero we all know remains to be seen. 

Interestingly, it's also said that there are big plans for Morgan Stark, though when and where the adult version of that character - who we're assuming would be played by Katherine Langford - will show up is unknown. 

With so much secrecy surrounding what's in store for us during the Multiverse Saga, we can only speculate about what might happen with Iron Man...assuming Downey is even willing to return. Will it be too soon to bring him back? It may seem so right now, but seven years will have passed by then, believe it or not. 

Avengers: Secret Wars is set to be released on May 1, 2026.

I mean it would make sense to bring him and Evans back here considering the scope of the comic storyline.

@BeyondtheFuture - They "convin$ed" Hugh to return, so I'm not willing to bet money.

Well then...
While it would be awesome to see Downey back as Iron-Man (I may be of the few that wished they'd never killed him or retired cap) I think it would be a little too soon to do this. The impact of it happening say 10-15 years down the line rather than 7 would be way more unexpected, and satisfying. Seeing him in secret wars would certainly still be amazing don't get me wrong. It just seems a little too soon.

If MyTimeToShineHello is saying it I believe it. She hasn’t missed yet.

@BreakTheCode - at all really. Even when something she said didn't come to fruition, there was concept art released to back up her claims and the movie was changed late in post
