A devastated Marvel fan has launched a petition to change the fate of Robert Downey Jr’s beloved character, Iron Man, following the events of Avengers: Endgame.


Marvel fans are mourning the loss of Iron Man aka Tony Stark who saved his fellow Avengers after Thanos’ deadly snap using the Infinity Stones, but sacrificing his own life in the process.

It was a sad but fitting – and for some, expected – end to the character that started the ever-expansive MCU back in 2000, but one Marvel fan in particular has called for his reinstatement.

A petition has reached more than 35,500 signatures and fans are hoping the character will be reinstated to the MCU.

Meline Loiseau, who started the campaign, writes: ‘MCU’s Tony deserves to come back fully alive. Tony Stark was always ready to risk his life, suffer, and sacrifice himself for anyone, without ever receiving anything in return.

‘Since the beginning, since he was a kid. He can never be happy, and when he finally got what he always wanted, and deserved, his wife, his daughter, his family… he died.’

Loiseau continued: ‘He didn’t deserve this and it’s not fair, after everything he’s been through, and done for everyone, he deserves to live and see his daughter grow up.

‘We love him so much. We love him 3000.’

The petition aims to reach 50,000 signatures and it seems to be nearing ever closer to the goal post.

But while Iron Man’s fate may be signed, sealed and delivered, another Avenger almost had an entirely different ending.

Anthony Russo recently revealed that Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, was actually going to run an orphanage looking after the children of those superheroes who perished in Thanos’ imploding snap.

However, producers had a change of heart and the alternate ending was scrapped.
