The MCU star, RDJ seems to have actually confirmed that the character, Iron Man will survive the events of Avengers: Endgame. The Avengers: Endgame teaser trailer had been released and had given all the fans their very first real look at the sequel to the movie, Avengers: Infinity War.
Other than showing a few of the fan-favourite superheroes deal with the after-effects of the Mad Titan’s snap, the very first trailer for Avengers: Endgame had shown off Hawkeye’s all-new Ronin mantle, Ant-Man (Scott Lang) outside of the Avengers compound and Iron Man adrift in space. Since this trailer shows only the footage from the very first 20 minutes of the film, all the fans have been wondering what actually happens to the character.
Well, as it turns out, Tony Stark survives. This has been confirmed by RDJ on December 7, the very same day that the Avengers: Endgame trailer had released. Audi had published an all-new video with the actor introducing the manufacturer’s e-tron GT concept. This is a short video, and it has RDJ reminiscing driving the Audi R8 in Jon Favreau’s original Iron Man film, but the huge news actually comes around the 3:40 mark when RDJ confirms that he drives this new car in the upcoming film.
By the end of this film, Downey Jr. tells Marc Lichte, Audi Head of Design that he has to drive this car, and then, Lichte responds, “You have driven it already!”
Downey Jr. then looks right into the camera, and he says,
“Well, I mean I… as Tony Stark in Avengers 4, out in theatres in spring 2019, I did.”
Since the movie, Infinity War ends with Nebula and Iron Man on Titan, and then Endgame starts off with them heading right to Earth, it seems that he will survive and return home.
Now, as to how Iron Man is rescued is yet to be seen. A few of the fan theories have also suggested that Rocket Raccoon, Pepper Potts Captain Marvel or Ant-Man, may come to Tony’s help.
