Marvel President Kevin Feige is adamant about preserving Tony Stark's impactful farewell in Avengers: Endgame and has no intention of revisiting or altering the character's fate.
The cast had already emotionally moved on from the film after bidding tearful goodbyes on the last day of shooting, so Robert Downey Jr. was initially hesitant to reshoot additional dialogue for Stark's final moments. However, Feige and co-director Joe Russo reassure fans that they will not cheapen Stark's sacrifice for the sake of box office numbers. After starring as Iron Man in 10 films, Downey's portrayal of the iconic character came to an end in Avengers: Endgame, which is considered one of the highest peaks in film franchise history. Marvel has a reputation for bringing back characters who seem to have met their demise, but Feige is determined not to do the same for Tony Stark. He emphasizes the importance of preserving the impactful moment from Endgame and has no plans to alter the fate of the character, regardless of the multiverse concept. Even during reshoots and the need for additional dialogue, Downey was initially reluctant.
Instead of overwhelming fans with constant content, next year will see the release of just one Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Deadpool 3. However, there may be speculation about the return of Downey's co-stars, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson, who also departed the franchise after Avengers: Endgame. Evans has confirmed that he has not yet been asked to return, but it wouldn't be a surprise if they brought them back into the fold in the future. Avengers: Endgame, the film that symbolizes the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War, is available to stream on Disney+. The story follows the Avengers as they assemble once more to reverse Thanos' actions and restore balance to the universe.
