Marvel fans posted a new billboard in Los Angeles asking the studio to release Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man in future MCU movies

It’s been nearly two years since Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame hit theaters, with a group of fans now begging for that movie’s ending to be changed.

The film ended with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, sacrificing himself using the Infinity Gauntlet to undo everything Thanos had done.

Despite the film ending with a heartfelt funeral scene, apparently a new group of fans have put up a billboard in Los Angeles, trying to convince Marvel to bring Iron Man back.
