Avengers: Endgame Theory Explains Robert Downey Jr Sacrifices Himself To Save Other Half Of Humanity

Avengers Endgame Iron Man Robert Downey Jr

A new Avengers: Endgame theory predicts an emotional journey for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), aka Iron Man.

Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters next month and will see the return of many of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to the big screen. Avengers: Infinity War left the entire universe in a bad place after Thanos (Josh Brolin) completed his nefarious plan of harnessing the power of the Infinity Gauntlet to cut the universe’s population in half. Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man wasn’t one of the casualties but he did have to watch many of the unlucky heroes disintegrate, including Peter Parker (Tom Holland), aka Spider-Man.

Many fans have been speculating for months if any additional heroes will die in Avengers: Endgame and Robert Downey Jr. is seen to some as one of the most obvious choices to have to give some huge sacrifice since he’s been with the Marvel Cinematic Universe for over a decade, since 2008’s Iron Man, directed by Jon Favreau. No official announcement regarding the exit of Robert Downey Jr. from the MCU has been released but this theory on Reddit from user Conall1992 makes a solid case for why Iron Man might have to make the ultimate sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame. Check out the full fan theory in the post below.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he’s one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes’ arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he’d love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I’ve always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he’s done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio’s best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn’t deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He’s charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he’s young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
