WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home, in theaters now.
Tony Stark/Iron Man was a driving force in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for much of its history. However, the hero finally died in Avengers: Endgame, sacrificing himself to defeat Thanos and his army. The Armored Avenger has cast a major shadow over the MCU, which we got hints of in Far From Home. We've created a list of ten ways Iron Man is still haunting the MCU.
We're starting with Quentin Beck/Mysterio. The villain finally made his debut in Far From Home, and the movie put a fresh spin on the character by giving him a long history with Stark Industries, having been fired and his revolutionary technology disparaged. Although he didn't survive the film, Beck's allies remain, and they still want revenge against Tony.
Technology is also a major way Tony is changing the universe. After starting out as a weapons manufacturer, Tony eventually turns his company around. We learn in Far From Home that Tony left behind the EDITH sunglasses, which nearly killed Peter and his classmates. A lot of Tony's inventions are still out in the world, and there might just villains capable of obtaining it and doing a lot of damage.
Check out the video below for more ways Iron Man is still haunting the MCU after his death.
At this time, there's no indication actor Robert Downey Jr. will actually reprise his role as Iron Man at any point in the near future. Endgame director Joe Russo stated the actor was done with the character for now. Still, it's entirely possible the MCU will find another armor suited superhero sooner rather than later in the shape of Riri Williams/Ironheart.
