Tony Saves Himself
Tony Stark appears to be in an impossible situation in the Avengers: Endgame trailer, but that’s the type of thing he thrives on. Though his situation may be dire, Tony wouldn’t be a hero if he was one to simply lay down and submit when the going gets tough. Surely there has to be some final moment of inspiration that encourages him to try some risky escape method to ensure his survival.
Tony Is Saved By Time Travel
Time travel has been a heavily speculated element of the plot of Avengers: Endgame, and if that is the case, then it may play a factor in Tony’s rescue. Perhaps the message he recorded on his helmet could be found long after his passing, and the surviving Avengers could use that data to go back to the time and coordinates in which Tony needed help?
Tony Is Saved By Pepper Potts
The most heart-breaking part of Tony’s bad situation is his heartfelt farewell to Pepper Potts, who has been by his side through thick and thin this entire run. Having said that, Pepper probably isn’t sitting back on Earth waiting on a reading of the will, and is more than likely using all of Stark Industries tech at her disposal to find her beau’s location.
Tony Is Saved By Nebula
Could the person that ends up saving Tony be someone he barely knows? A scene that shows Nebula in the trailer for Avengers: Endgame appears to show her hanging out in a ship very similar to the one Tony is in. Another scene appears to show her placing a hand on the chest of someone wearing a black shirt, or perhaps Tony’s black tank-top.
Tony Is Saved By Rocket
Out of all of surviving heroes on Earth that know a lot about space travel, Rocket is near the top of the list. Plus, the incredibly resourceful trash panda Guardian could rustle up the means to create a ship capable of traveling a distance to find Tony. The question is, why would Rocket be concerned of searching out and rescuing Tony?
Captain Marvel Saves Tony
This is, perhaps, the most plausible theory on how Iron Man will be saved. We’ve written on this topic already, and the logic behind it is sound. Carol was already summoned to head to Earth by Nick Fury, and is confirmed to be a part of Avengers: Endgame. Wouldn’t it makes sense that her introduction in the film comes via her stumbling across Tony’s ship?
