Who would be Marvel’s next Iron Man, famously played by Robert Downey Jr, these are hard shoes to fill… Is the new IronHeart series a wise replacement?
With Avengers: Endgame culminating in the demise of Tony Stark, filling up the big shoes left behind by the brilliant billionaire is not going to be a small feat. There are many theories flying around suggesting who might step up into the Iron Man suit in the near future. But nothing is certain just yet! Finding a replacement for Tony Stark would involve a lot of things being put into consideration.
Heads Up! Apparently, an Ironheart series is in works at the Marvel Studio but Iron Man’s protege remains unknown

Fans will never forget that RDJ’s Iron Man is the reason for the fame and legendary status that the MCU enjoy today. It was not possible if the first and second Iron Man movies didn’t do well on the box office.
RDJ’s impeccable portrayal of Tony Stark’s attitude; a rich narcissistic jerk who only saw business opportunities. Who along the way learned to take responsibility for his actions creates reliability with viewers. After all, isn’t the whole essence of life is to learn to make the right choices, and also falter it along the way?
Often Downey Jr has been described as the force to propel the Marvel movies in motion. He has the highest number of appearances across the Infinity Saga.
Daredevil to fill Iron-Man’s Shoes
Now when Tony Stark is gone the world needs a new Iron Man (or does it really?) Marvel studios might need to look long and hard for his successor. Apparently Marvel and Sony both are in search of a new Daredevil.
One of the ideas being thrown around is Daredevil becoming the new Man in the suit. ScreenRant released an image of the Daredevil spotting an Iron Man helmet in the new comic art. It quickly sparked widespread discussions that the vigilante from Hell’s kitchen would be wearing the suit next.
However, that looks pretty unlikely, considering Daredevil’s reliance on vibrations and sonic sense.
Besides, one uncanny characteristic of Tony Stark was his consistent dedication to constantly improving the quality of his suits, and tech isn’t exactly Daredevil’s forte.
IronHeart Set to Debute in the MCU
A more realistic replacement lies in the upcoming Marvel series, Ironheart. Telling the story of an MIT teenager Riri Williams, who designs a super-suit inspired by the Iron Man. Ironheart could cut pretty close to standing in as Stark’s replacement. Geek alert!
However, we need to see the IronHearts’s attitude and charisma to decide she’s ‘Iron Man mantle worthy’ or not. It’s important for the fans to keep an open mind while we anticipate the series, which would begin filming late next year.
Certain circles do believe that The War-machine could easily step up and take the Iron Man mantle but that would not be ideal. Apart from being Iron Man’s friend and psychic, morphing the war machine into the new Iron Man might be looked upon.
Besides, the future phases of the MCU could see the development of a War-machine origin story!
The fact remains, replacing Iron Man would require ticking many check boxes. And whichever way Marvel Studios decides to wing it in the coming phases, Tony Stark’s Iron Man would be greatly missed by Marvel fans across the world.
