The Avengers 4 trailer has hit the emotional cord of every fan. The trailer showed us how the remaining Avengers are dealing with the immense loss they suffered at the end of Infinity War. Most of the trailer belonged to Ironman, who is now stranded in space. He has no food or water and only one more day of oxygen. Although there’s no denying that he is going to be saved by someone at that point, there is a big chance that he will rest in his grave when the movie ends.
And the evidence for this might be provided in the trailer itself. In the trailer, there is a brief shot of the ship Tony is traveling in. The Reddit user ‘iAMA_Leb_AMA’ has deduced that this shot of the ship could carry a very specific meaning. This user found that the shape of the ship ( a swallow) could very well be symbolic of Tony’s death. In a screenshot posted by this user, the term “Swallow symbolism” was discussed. And According to Google, “the swallow tattoo was a symbol used historically by sailors to show off their sailing experience, usually tattooed on their chest, hands or neck. Seeing swallows was a sign that their travels were nearing an end.”

If this brings out tears in your eyes, there’s another meaning this ship shape could possess. As commented by a user on this Reddit post, “I believe it’s not a negative “end”, but more like the sailors will reach safe shores. As in, if you see a bird on a boat, that means there is land nearby so you won’t die forgotten at sea.”
Maybe it carries both these meaning. In any case, it is a very interesting observation by the Reddit user. And as you would know, Robert Downey Jr.’s contract with Marvel has concluded with Avengers: Endgame, so there’s a chance we will have to bid him adieu.
