Nobody can believe it’s been two years since the release of Avengers: Endgame. Least of all, Iron Man himself. Robert Downey Jr. just tweeted a behind-the-scenes green screen video from the making of Endgame, and if you loved this movie, you’ll love this moment.
On Monday, April 26, Downey Jr. tweeted “Cannot believe it’s been two years since Endgame…#LoveYouAll3000.”
And then, he shared a short, but poignant behind-the-scenes video. In it, it looks like Tony Stark has just finished snapping his fingers, which means this could be an alternate take from his epic “I am Iron Man” scene. Then again, it’s not entirely clear. Either way, this is a raw glimpse of Downey Jr. pouring some heart and soul into Tony Stark. Whether or not Tony was always the greatest person (debatable!) isn’t really the point with this video. Instead, this is all about the cathartic feelings that Endgame gave us back when the world seemed a tiny bit simpler.

Now, there’s no reason to think that Downey Jr. is hinting at a return for Tony Stark/Iron Man in the Marvel movies. Right? He’s just tweeting out a nice movie memory. Tony is most certainly 100 percent dead. Let’s not get our hopes up. And yet, rumors persist that he could return in the form of a hologram in a possible IronHeart series for Disney+.
And fans also really want Tony Stark back so much that a billboard recently went up in downtown LA, begging Marvel and Disney to #BringTonyStarkBacktoLife.

Downey Jr.’s tweet went up two days after the 4.24.21 date on the billboard. It’s probably a coincidence, right? Tony Stark isn’t really coming back…is he? I mean, the next big Marvel movie after Black Widow isn’t about multiverses…oh wait.
Black Widow hits Disney+ and theaters on July 9. Loki debuts on Disney+ on June 11. Black Widow happens before Infinity War and Loki deals with alternate timelines. So, you know…maybe Tony Stark is coming back.
