The movie, Avengers 4 is all set to be a huge culmination of MCU movies over 10 years and will be the sequel to the very first Marvel ensemble movie, Infinity War. It had all kick-started with the Iron Man movie in the year, 2008 and this character has become the most recognized face of the MCU. Tony Stark has shouldered the responsibility of leading the Avengers for many years.
The upcoming untitled Avengers 4 film is all set to bring closure to a lot of plots, storylinesand also, character arc. A few of the comic-book themes that have been related to Iron Man that the franchise has thrown light on is the inner guilt that he feels about all his sins, the character’s obsession to contribute to the greater good of the world, andthe impact of the death of his parents. But alcoholism is not the defining trait of this character in the MCU which was the case in the comic books.
According to a new theory, Tony Stark has a death wish and he wishes to redeem himself off all the horrible things that he has done during his life. The character has demonstrated a lot of dangerous behaviour and alsoa few erratic thoughts. As the Mad Titan, Thanoshad pointed out, he has been cursed with a lot of and if not, too much knowledge. Tony Stark feels guilty for causing a lotdeaths as he sells deadly weapons that is used in wars by the US government. The character is always on a pursuit of wiping off the bad guys from the Earth and this indicated his OCD symptoms.
He is also ready to pay an ultimate cost in order save humanity and it is almost certain that the movie, Avengers 4 will kill this superhero as nothing can be more poetic than MCU’s phase 3 closing with Tony Stark death.
Joe Russo had explained what is in store for Tony Stark:
“I think, in a lot of ways, he is the heart and soul of the Marvel universe,” Russo had said.
“He’s a fascinating character, a character that we love because he is imminently flawed and we like characters that are challenging and express their humanity and I think Tony Stark does that as well as any of the characters. He started off as a narcissistic alcoholic and grew into a hero which, I think, makes him imminently relatable and signifies what the Marvel universe stands for, which is character first and the heroes are defined through the choices that they make.”
“I feel like with Avengers 4, because it was made before there was any response to Avengers 3, it’s really pure in that regard. The storytelling is very pure. It’s without any sort of external noise creeping in at,” Russo had added.
He then said,
“We’ve been in post-production on [Avengers 4] since the release of Infinity War and we’ve got some additional photography that we’re doing in a month or so.”
“You know, we’re very proud of it. I think ultimately Avengers 4 may be our best work for Marvel. I think we’ve grown with every movie that we’ve made there. We’ve grown with the characters. We’ve grown with the cast. As filmmakers we’re very happy and very excited with the movie.”
“We’ve worked on the edit all summer,” Anthony had confirmed, “and we’re excited to finally get these missing pieces in the film and then we expect to be in post through the fall and winter.”
