As Marvel and movie fans around the world rejoice after the studio finally dropped the trailer for Avengers: Endgame, the new footage only added to the mystery surrounding the saga and how it’s all going to end.


As well as doing its job and teasing the next film, the new trailer opened up many more questions for fans desperate to know what’s going to happen.

The next Avengers film is bringing an end to Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but does that mean it’s the end of the Avengers as we know them?

The trailer opens with a shot of Tony Stark’s Iron Man helmet, which is lying on the floor of a spaceship.

Check it out:


Tired, lost and looking defeated, Tony tells his fiancée Pepper Potts:

Dear Miss Potts, if you find this recording don’t feel bad about this, part of the journey is the end. Just for the record being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds.

Food and water ran out four days ago, oxygen will run out tomorrow morning and I mean it, when I drift off I will dream about you, it’s always you.

After he has said goodbye Tony turns the helmet off leaving us all wondering if he will die while lost in space.

So, naturally, being the helpful and conscientious Marvel fans that we are, many people turned to the people they believed could still help Tony and the gang from their seemingly certain fate – NASA.

One person tweeted:

NASA please send a rescue team for Tony Stark. my boi is dying out there


Another said:

NASA stop other things… Just go for Tony Stark and rescue him…

Or you will pay for it…

Go go go…..

Just go there you damn folks

Another concerned citizen said:

NASA Hey guys…
On behalf of all the survivors I request you to pls find Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, resident of 10-8-80 Malibu Point, 90265, Malibu, CA. He is stuck somewhere in space without food and water with oxygen about to run out anytime now.

Finally, NASA stopped looking for aliens or whatever they do, and responded to the real concerns of Marvels fans.

Taking to Twitter, they wrote:

Hey Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man

That’s some helpful advice NASA, but didn’t you hear the man? His oxygen is running out! Chuck someone in a rocket and send them up there! I’m pretty sure Elon Musk has a fast car or something you can borrow if you don’t have a spaceship ready…


I’m joking of course, we all know that if Tony can build a snazzy chest-light thing to stop pieces of shrapnel reaching his heart, while held hostage in a cave in the middle of the desert, he can get himself out of space.

Avengers: Endgame hits cinemas worldwide on April 26, 2019.
