Since Robert Downey Jr. buried his character Iron Man / Tony Stark in Avengers 4: Endgame, MCU disciples have been wanting his return. There has been a clear no to this from both the actor and Marvel – Iron Man has even been removed from Black Widow. But now fan dreams are still coming true: The trailer for the new Disney + series What If …? celebrates Iron Man’s return – in some ways.
Marvel’s What if … brings back Steve Rogers in Iron Man armor
What if … will be the next Marvel series on Disney + after WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. It already has its concept in its name: What if some events in the MCU timeline did not happen or would have turned out differently?
Check out the latest clip from Marvel’s What if … here:

What if T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) had become Star Lord instead of Black Panther? What would be, if Tony Stark had never invented the Iron Man prototypebecause Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) would have saved him from his assassins in time?
His character becomes the new Iron Man in What If …: Chris Evans as Steve Rogers
Exactly such a situation arises in the latest trailer: Peggy Carter (English voice: Hayley Atwell), Captain America’s big flame from the Marvel films, has practically taken over his role there: with the super soldier serum and the British counterpart of the Fitted cap outfits she is fighting on the front line against the Nazis.
When she gets into a mess with MCU darling Bucky (Sebastian Stan) and “Dum Dum” Dugan (Neal McDonough), Steve Rogers / Alternative Captain America is not far. He comes to their aid in high-tech armor, which is very reminiscent of Tony Stark’s first prototype from Iron Man. Has Iron Man Returned – 63 Years Early? Are Rogers and Iron Man one person now? What’s behind it?
Tony Stark’s dad could turn Steve Rogers into Iron Man
The answer probably lies with another member of the Stark dynasty: Tony’s father Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), known as a Captain America comrade in the MCU films, is going to make an appearance on the series.
Last Iron Man appearance: Robert Downey Jr. in Avengers 4
About the different storylines of What if …? Not much is known so far – but it is possible that Stark Senior came across the ingenious invention of his son a few decades ago, to decide World War II in favor of the Allies. Steve Rogers would have passed the super soldier goblet on to Peggy Carter, but would have become the Iron Man of the 40s with a combat suit.
That may disappoint some fans who had hoped for one last big appearance of the previous MCU Iron Man in the series: Robert Downey Jr. will not return as Iron Man – and that’s a good thing.
Supporters of the figures do not have to mourn: Tony Stark, Captain America and Iron Man will return in one form or another on the series. And with the greatest possible freedom: a what-if free ticket. What If …? starts on August 11th at Disney + by subscription.
