Although Avengers: Endgame was the highest grossing movie of all time, that didnt stop it from breaking all our hearts.

There may light at the end of this very miserable tunnel after all, as it has been rumoured that Robert Downey Jr. will be returning as our beloved Tony Stark for the Black Widow movie.

The 54-year-old actor has been playing Tony Stark for well over a decade and when Endgame hit us with that heart wrenching sacrifice to save the universe, we didnt know what to do with ourselves.

Not only did Robert play Tony Stark, he was the perfect living embodiment of the superhero that left a gigantic void in our hearts.

However, Black Widow is getting her very own solo film (finally) and Deadline claims that Iron Man will be reprising his role for it.

Continuity wouldnt be a problem for Black Widow, but when has the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever struggled with continuity?

If not in Black Widow, we may still see Robert Downey Jr. in other Marvel films.

Marvel sources have claimed that RDJ is preparing to return to the Marvel Universe as Tony Stark. Or rather, as a version of Tony. The launch of the new streaming service Disney+ will make room for even more Marvel stories to be explored.

According to sources who spoke to We Got This Covered, Marvel wants one of those stories to be that of Riri Williams Ironheart.

Williams is a teenage genius who was first introduced in 2016 and who follows in Tony Starks footsteps.
