Iron Man may have died in Avengers: Endgame, but Marvel Cinematic Universe fans might never come to terms with the fact that Tony Stark is actually gone. The iconic superhero in the MCU witnessed the greatest character development as compared to any other OG Avengers. He started off being a narcist but ended up sacrificing his life for the world. While fans rave about the character essayed by Robert Downey Jr, Joe Russo confessed he felt that Tony's arc is the most tragic of them all. 

Hosting an Ask Me Anything on Reddit recently, Joe Russo revealed several interesting insights into Iron Man. He revealed that Tony's death was the most difficult scene to shoot. But he said that he felt Tony's arc was the most tragic. "At this point we have been involved with just about every characters arc in the MCU. But in respect to all of the characters that aren't Cap, I think Tony's arc is incredibly tragic and unquantifiably heroic," he said. 

Explaining why, he added, "As a father myself, contemplating the notion of being presented with the choice of saving the universe at the cost of losing your life, and knowing that your child would lose their father, and that your wife would lose a husband, is painfully difficult to comprehend." 

Soon after Avengers: Endgame released, several fans had taken to social media mourning the loss of Tony Stark and express it was unfair to kill him off especially when he was finally settled with his wife and daughter and his life. But his sacrifice was necessary. Although Robert has kissed Iron Man and MCU goodbye with Avengers: Endgame, the studio had revealed that there will be the mention of his character in upcoming movies. So, we are not fully done away with Iron Man aka Tony Stark yet.
