Back in 2008, Tony Stark aka Iron Man spiralled a universe of superhero movies that turned into biggest movie franchise business ever. In a span of 11 years and nine appearances, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man not only brought the character to life but also breathed life into a dying Marvel Studios.
Iron Man’s Character Arc
Infinity Saga, saw Tony Stark selflessly sacrificing himself for the greater good! He started as a ‘textbook narcissist’ character and grew to do ‘whatever it takes’ to save what they lost.
Likewise, Robert Downey Jr was the first and only choice of the Marvel Studios to play the character. There was a lot at stake for the Studio and the maiden MCU movie was a hit at the box office.
Both Iron Man and Downey Jr played a pivotal role in building the MCU the way we know it. Now a new MCU Phase 4 set to start this November with Black Widow Movie. Marvel Studios is already planning for Tony Stark or at least shadows of Iron Man to be felt into the MCU.
And fans undoubtedly want to see RDJ’s Tony Stark to return to the MCU.
Marvel’s Iron Man Saga
When it comes to fan service there is none better than Disney’s Marvel Studios in the business! Similarly, when it comes to planting Easter eggs and teasing fans with what next quotient – again there’s none better than them.
Legacy franchises like Marvel Comic Universe often try to keep reinventing their characters. Marvel is set to reboot its Iron Man saga with a new series. Come September 2020, Iron Man #1 will mark the return of Tony Stark as Iron Man.
Doctor Doom fame scribe Christopher Cantwell will write this comic book run and will feature art by CAFU. Interestingly, his Iron Armour will get an update by none other than legendary comic book artist and scribe, Alex Ross.
Marvel watchers have often observed that the studio like to not only pick the storylines from the comics but also plant comic book storylines for a future reference. This keeps the fans guessing and businesses relevant to popular culture.
Return of Tony Stark in Marvel Studios
This simply means that there’s a possibility the studio might be paving the path for Iron Man’s return to Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the Comics Tony was replaced by his adoptive brother, Arno Stark. So the key to how Tony Stark will return to MCU might be lurking somewhere in Iron Man #1.
There are many speculations around if, how and when Robert Downey Jr will return as Iron Man one more time. The studio and RDJ both felt Iron Man’s character arc has a satisfactory end. To maintain the effect of Tony’s big sacrifice the makers would take their own sweet time to present him before the audience.
The year 2020 has been quite a ride for Marvel fans but September due return of Tony Stark would be the most welcome one!
