Robert Downey Jr. helped create a solid foundation for the MCU and eleven years after his superhero debut as Iron Man that incredible contribution to the franchise that has now made billions came to a powerful conclusion when his character, Tony Stark, sacrificed himself to stop the ultimate comic book villain, Thanos, from annihilating all life in the universe.
Apparently, Robert Downey Jr. will return for an eensy-weensy role in the Black Widow prequel but there have been rumors that the actor could return to the MCU in the future. How you may ask. Didn’t we see him die before our very eyes? Well, yes, and as I said before, it was a powerful death that was given the emotional heft it deserved.

Enjoy!
Anakin’s middle chapter was fraught with personal conflict as he had to face the biggest challenge in his life; choosing between his love for Padme or his duty to the Jedi Order. When we first meet the older Anakin in Attack of the Clones he is still very much a padawan.
