A new Marvel Cinematic Universe fan theory has discovered the perfect way for Robert Downey Jr. to return as Tony Stark after Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame finally arrives to theaters in April and some fans are expecting this to be Robert Downey Jr.’s final outing as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. The actor debuted as the character in the MCU’s first film, 2008’s Iron Man. Now, fans fear that the upcoming follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War will be the final adventure for Tony Stark in the MCU, who barely made it out of the 2018 MCU event film alive.
A new fan theory from Reddit gives Robert Downey Jr. a very fitting new role in the MCU going forward. If the actor were to leave the physical role of the Marvel hero, it seems that he could return as just his voice in a very intriguing way. Check out the awesome fan theory in the post below.
Robert Downey Jr. would be a perfect new A.I. for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man not just because of their relationship but also because he’d be picking the mantle from another Marvel alumni. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, the titular hero’s suit was voiced by Jennifer Connelly, who starred as Betty Ross in 2003’s Hulk.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
