When MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE decided to kill one of its most liked Avengers, Iron Man, the fans watching Avengers: Endgame went all teary-eyed.

It was the end of a 10+-year-old saga that started with Iron Man, the first movie of MCU Phase One.

This movie is regarded as the first stone in the establishment of such a successful movie studio for Marvel as we see it today.

The movie Iron Man came after a series of flops such as Ben Affleck‘s Daredevil and Elektra. That is why the character of Tony Stark, played by RDJ has such a special place in every MCU fan’s heart.

Marvel Studios took a risky decision to kill its highest-rated superhero. But, it was the greatest tribute that a filmmaking studio can give to its character. And even though Tony Stark is dead, he can surely come back. How? Here’s the answer.

MCU has from time to time mentioned that Marvel Comics is a multiverse world. This means that the possibility of re-casting the same actor again and again, for the same role, is never off the table. This means that yes, RDJ can re-appear as our favorite Iron Man.
