One of the reasons Avengers: Endgame was such a big deal for the Marvel community was because it was supposedly the final run of two of the franchise’s most famous and beloved characters, Iron Man and Captain America.
Iron Man would perish after saving the world from Thanos’s ultimate goal to destroy the universe and Captain America went on to become old and pass the mantle on to Sam Wilson a.k.a Falcon. But, according to a report from Deadline that’s spreading around the internet, Endgame may have not been Iron Man’s last outing after all.
They have said, and I quote: “Downey will be seen in the role of Stark one more time, however, in the Marvel prequel Black Widow in May 2020.”
While this is clearly exciting news for all the above reasons it almost feels like it’s underwhelming his incredible sacrifice at the end of Endgame. So much detail and time went into delivering Robert Downey Jr./Iron Man an impactful departure that the thought of that departure being erased with him making a sure-to-be-cameo appearance in Black Widow is almost distracting.
But, I’m not complaining. Because this is a prequel, I would love to see Iron Man in the film, and heck, who knows, maybe even Captain America can join the party as well. Because this is set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Black Widow, toward the end of the film, will surely have to make her way to joining Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, and Wanda Maximoff as a Secret Avenger. So…why not show that transition in the movie and make all of our days?
There is honestly so much potential with this Black Widow prequel and as it draws nearer my excitement for the film is only growing.
