We love Tony Stark and he will be remembered for what he did to save the universe. His sacrifice for his love, friends, the universe will always remain in our hearts.
Robert Downey Jr. who played the character of Tony Stark is much influenced by his doings and thinking.
Tony Stark’s Arc in Endgame
Downey has gone a step ahead in taking the character’s arc in his real life.
After almost 10 appearances as Iron Man, Downey Jr. did fair with his character by altering ego and tried his hands in saving the world with the use of Tony’s Intelligence.
In Avengers: Endgame, Avengers bring back everyone dusted off by Thanos’ snap-in Avengers: Infinity War.

But with the Mad Titan still posing a threat to the universe, Stark wielded the power of all Infinity Stones to take him out and all his minions, killing himself in the process.
It was a bittersweet ending to the character’s tremendous journey in the last decade, but it was a fitting way to send him off thematically.
Someone at Disney is really annoyed right now that the actor didn’t announce this BEFORE the release of Avengers: Endgame.
The cross-promotion could have easily added another billion to ticket sales.
Announcements Made by RDJ
Last week, RDJ appeared on stage at Amazon’s Re: Mars conference in Las Vegas, where he was billed as the keynote speaker.
The veteran Hollywood star spent 20 minutes talking to the audience about his career, his work in the Marvel Universe, and his relationship to artificial intelligence, which included a brief cameo by Matt Damon, who appeared via video through the AI Alexa assistant.
The speech concluded with Downey Jr. announcing The Footprint Coalition, which he and wife Susan Downey are spearheading together with a panel of experts.
“God I love experts. They’re like Wikipedia with character defects,” he joked. “Between robotics and nanotechnology, we could clean up the planet significantly, if not totally, in 10 years.”
Downey has dabbled in artificial intelligence-centric projects such as producing a docu-series about the topic for YouTube with wife, Susan Downey.
The eight-episode, hour-long show was announced last year and is expected to debut on YouTube Red this year.
Aside from that, the actor offered to voice Mark Zuckerberg’s digital assistant in the past as well.
He was also involved in non-profit charity Limitless Solutions presenting a 3D-printed bionic arm to a young boy who was born with a partially developed arm, although he kept his Tony Stark persona throughout the whole meet-up.
So far the details of the Footprint Coalition are vague, but a website has provided a spreadsheet form having a brief introduction and a section for interested parties to sign up to receive newsletters about the organization.
One thing we do know is that Downey Jr. isn’t the only member of the Avengers who is working to make the world a better place.
