Avengers: Endgame saw the journeys of several of the MCU's most important heroes come to an end, including Tony Stark/Iron Man. After using his own Infinity Gauntlet to snap away Thanos and his forces, Tony dies. However, not every fan is taking the hero's death lying down.
A new change.org petition calling for Marvel Studios to bring Tony back to life sits at almost 18,000 signatures as of this article. "MCU's Tony deserves to come back fully alive," writes petitioner Mélanie Loiseau. "Tony Stark was always ready to risk his life, suffer, and sacrifice himself for anyone, without ever receiving anything in return. Since the beginning, since he was a kid. He can never be happy, and when he finally got what he always wanted, and deserved, his wife, his daughter, his family.. he died. He didn't deserve this and it's not fair, after everything he's been through, and done for everyone, he deserves to live and see his daughter grow up."
The petitioner then wrote that, as Tony helped many people both in the MCU and the real world, "it's our turn to save him."
At this time there's no indication Tony will return to the MCU. Following the release of Endgame, co-director Joe Russo answered a question about the hero's future, saying actor Robert Downey Jr. was "done." It's entirely possible Tony might return in some capacity down the line, but there's no official word on that at this time.
Petitions to change content fans didn't enjoy have become somewhat more common lately, as evidenced by a popular petition regarding Game of Thrones Season 8. However, the petitions don't seem to change anything.
