Iron Man's journey comes to its conclusion in Avengers: Endgame. Robert Downey, Jr.'s Tony Stark has been through a lot in the last decade, but his biggest fight is still to come as he prepares for Earth's Mightiest Heroes' upcoming clash with Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Avengers: Endgame.

After six years of being psychologically tortured by the threat that the Mad Titan posed, Stark was finally able to confront his fear by facing Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Unfortunately, despite putting a gallant effort, Stark hadn't only seen his worst nightmare come to fruition, he also has to live through it after the villain successfully wiped out half of life in the universe. But with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) willingly giving up the Time Stone so he can live and continue the battle, Stark needs to pick himself up and gear up for the most important mission of his life.

The fate of the universe now rests on the shoulders of the surviving MCU heroes. Avengers: Endgame will see the re-assembly of the original six Avengers - each one expected to play a pivotal role in the upcoming fight against Thanos. With a score to settle with the Mad Titan, Stark will undoubtedly be at the forefront of the battle to take down the villain and restore peace and order in the universe. Here's everything we know about the MCU's inaugural hero's role in Avengers 4.

Iron Man Is Trapped In Space At The Start Of Avengers: Endgame

The Avengers: Endgame trailer offered us our first look at what the surviving heroes are up to following their defeat in Infinity War, and none was in as dire a situation as Tony Stark. Trapped in space aboard the Benatar with no hope of being saved, he doesn't have much time to spare with the ship's oxygen running out. Currently, there's a lot of theories regarding who might save him. Assuming that Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) may also be in the cosmos, some believe that she will be the one to bring Stark home. Meanwhile, the confirmation that Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) will be getting her own suit in Endgame, coupled with Stark recording a farewell message to her as seen in the trailer, has roused speculations that she might go to outer space and save her fiance herself.

However things pan out, fans can expect Iron Man to make his way back to Earth and join his fellow heroes in the quest to restore order in the universe after The Decimation. This is backed up by several photos from the set of Avengrs: Endgame, and a recent advertisement from Audi which confirmed Tony Stark's survival as well.

Audiences have become used to Stark religiously improving his armor movie-after-movie, and so it's long been a given that he will also don a brand new suit in Avengers: EndgameThe first promo art for the film showed Iron Man wearing the same armor from Avengers: Infinity War (though, since its nano-tech, it might just look similar in standard mode but could be equipped with new bells and whistles). However, other pieces of key art reveal a couple of other variations for his next garb. The selection includes a suit that mines inspiration from his classic comic book costume (at least aesthetically) and another one matching the team's white ensembles which are believed to be the suits that they'll to use to travel in the Quantum Realm.

Stark's obsession with bettering his armor was fueled by his fear of another Earth invasion after his near-death experience in The Avengers. He equipped his Infinity War armor with every possible weapon and made it much easier to access. Despite all that, Thanos still easily dismantled it during their fight in Titan. It'll be curious how he'll up his suit game for Avengers:Endgame as he gears up for another round with the Mad Titan.
