After Avengers Infinity War, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are left to solve a puzzle unlike any. How will the remaining superheroes undo Thanos’ finger snap? While time travel has always been the most plausible theory so far, we must remember the Russo Brothers’ penchant for throwing unexpected twists in their films. So this fan theory about Iron Man clashing with Thanos again in Avengers 4 has got many thinking that Tony Stark could be the key to this puzzle.
After all, didn’t Doctor Strange give up The Eye of Agamotto, aka the Time Stone, to save Iron Man and when Stark asks Dr Strange what he was thinking, he is told that there is only one possibility of the heroes winning against Thanos and for that Iron Man needs to be alive. Dr Strange happens to be one of the many superheroes who disappear into thin air after Thanos’ finger snap.
Fans are also basing their theory on Thanos explicitly telling Iron Man in Infinity War that he hopes people remember him, which they believe show Stark as a worthy adversary of the mad titan. Thanos strikes Iron Man in Infinity War and leaves him to die, but Iron Man not only survives Thanos’ attack, but also his finger snap. Taking all of this into consideration, this theory is worth rooting for.
Avengers 4 is slated to release during Summer 2019 and the film will conclude the Marvel Cinematic Universe as fans know it today. The superhero universe will take a new direction post-Avengers 4, which may include X-Men characters since Disney recently acquired 21st Century Fox.
