After a decade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man saved the universe by giving his life in Avengers Endgame. While some Marvel fans felt it was the right way for Tony Stark to bow out, considering his redemptive character arc from selfish womaniser to selfless superhero, others were devastated and wanted him resurrected in the franchise going forward. In fact, some feel so strongly about it, they’ve started a petition on Change.org called BRING TONY STARK BACK TO LIFE. And so far over 15,000 fans have signed it.
The petition to Marvel reads: “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.
“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.”
The petition continued: “He has helped so many people (in the MCU and in our world), he has helped people to live (including me) to overcome their problems, to accept themselves, to face life. He’s so important. He saved our lives and it’s our turn to save him.
“We love him so much. We love him 3000. Without him, now, we are totally lost.
“For many people, he was their reason to live and hold on in life.”
While the resurrection of Iron Man is unlikely, it looks like he will cameo in Spider-Man Far From Home.
