Robert Downey Jr’s last role as IronMan will be credited with Avengers Endgame unless Marvel draws up a new contract asking him to reprise his role in the upcoming MCU movies. But that’s somewhat unlikely. Because Avengers Endgame is the last reprisal of the original Avengers actors, the screenwriters and the directors would definitely have the liberty to send some of these characters to their graves.
A recent fan theory by a Redditor claims a way IronMan could return even after his death. This theory predicts IronMan will serve as SpiderMan’s AI after Avengers Endgame.
This theory points out the different scenarios which would lead to IronMan being a part of the MCU after Endgame.
“1. Retire and just serve as a figurehead and very limited IronMan figure in extreme circumstances
2. renegotiate his contract and serve as a central figure in the MCU again
3. join the Guardians of the Galaxy and go to space
4. Die and become an AI”
Comic fans would know that IronMan did indeed turn himself in an AI in the comics. Now, this theory further adds to this notion that he would serve as Spiderman’s suit’s AI.
Peter and Tony shared a rather intricate moment in Infinity War. The very first day Tony promotes SpiderMan to the position of an Avenger is the day he has to witness Peter die in his own hands.
Many fan theories suspect that this would happen again in Avengers Endgame, with the only difference being the reversal of the characters. Tony will die in Peter’s hands.

Let’s assume something like this indeed happens and then Spidey hears “Hey kid. Miss me?” and then rejoices that his mentor will be with him all his life, albeit in the form of a program.
