Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Footage confirms Tony Stark officially dies in MCU’s Avengers: Endgame today, October 17th, 2023
While Avengers: Endgame was released in 2019, the events of the film took place in 2023 following the MCU’s five-year time jump established in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. Though it could be debated that time travel puts her death in 2014, Marvel fans have deduced that the fateful day when Natasha perishes is Oct. 16, 2023 and as a result, the character is trending on social media as tributes pour in. Reaching the date has many of them saying goodbye to Natasha all over again, reminded of when the heartbreaking death scene played out on-screen back in 2019.
Of course, Avengers: Endgame featured another major character death. Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, also sacrificed himself in the hit film, but it was notably not on the same day. According to Marvel fans, the consensus is that he died on the following day, Oct. 17. Chances are the popular superhero will similarly be getting a lot of love on social media to mark that occasion as well.
Tony Stark was first introduced in 2008’s Iron Man. In roughly 10 years, the character managed to become a fan favorite. Marvel Studios is well-known for releasing its films in groups called Phases, with the first three phases collectively known as The Infinity Saga. These three phases helped Marvel become one of the world’s biggest movie franchises. Over the course of 10 years, the movies managed to introduce exciting new characters and garnered a loyal fanbase.
Tony Stark died at the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ but before that, he saved the entire universe from Thanos and his forces by snapping them out of existence and ending their threat once and for all. But the use of all the six Infinity Stones all at once took its toll on his body and he died of his grievous injuries.
“He did. Yeah. And I remember pacing on the corner of a stage on the phone with Favreau trying to talk him off a ledge. Because he’s like, ‘You can’t do this. It’s gonna devastate people, and you don’t want them, you know, walking out of the theater and into traffic.’ We did it anyways,” said Joe Russo.
The Russo recently directed multi-starrer action-thriller ‘The Gray Man’ for Netflix. It featured Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and our own Dhanush in the cast. Wion’s review of the film read, “..it is an almost entirely disposable action-thriller, virtually indistinguishable from those genre movies that have cropped up in hordes on streaming services in the last five or so years.”
The Marvel movies took place in a certain timeline and as per their timeline, Tony Stark officially dies in the year 2023 after fighting Thanos. Fans are now reminiscing the days as Tony Stark officially dies in 2 months in real-time, marking the end of the character from every timeline.
With five years passed after Thanos’ Snap, Scott Lang/Ant-Man, who had been stuck in the Quantum Realm returns and locates Steve Rogers and the rest of the Avengers. After hatching a plan to take down Thanos, all the heroes unite to go on a Time Heist to travel to multiple points in time and gather the Infinity Stones to reverse the effects of the snap. After gathering all the Infinity Stones, Tony Stark builds his own version of the Infinity Gauntlet. After Bruce Banner/Hulk snaps, a past version of Thanos emerged from Stark’s Quantum portal, however, with the effects of the blip reversed, all lost heroes return.
At the end of the battle, in order to defeat Thanos, Stark takes an important step. But as sad as the death was, it served as the perfect send-off to the greatest MCU superhero who began from an uncaring, reckless playboy and died as a saviour of trillions of living beings.
While speaking to Vanity Fair, the Russo Brothers, who helmed ‘Avengers: Endgame’ said Jon Favreau, who had directed Downey Jr in the first two ‘Iron Man’ movies, asked them whether they are really going to kill Iron Man.
