Although Robert Downey Jr. left the Tony Stark role behind in 2019 some Avengers fans are campaigning for his return.
It’s been two years since Robert Downey Jr. was last seen on the big screen as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame, but some fans want to see the hero make a return. In a similar fashion to the ‘Release the Snyder Cut’ campaign, a minority of Marvel fans have paid for a billboard in Los Angeles to try and persuade the studio to resurrect Tony Stark. Although #BringBackTonyStarkToLife isn’t particularly catchy.
It’s not impossible that Marvel Studios could bring Robert Downey Jr. back to the Tony Stark role for a brief crowd-pleasing appearance at some point in the future, but resurrecting him just for the sake of it would feel like a disservice to the character. Besides, since there’s an Ironheart series in the works for Disney Plus, it isn’t impossible that an A.I. version of Tony Stark might appear in some form to aid Riri Williams as he does in the comics. But it’s probably best to wait a few years before crowbarring in a return from Robert Downey Jr. Take a look at the billboard below.
