No Thank You to the Theory That Tony Stark Is Dead in Spider-Man: Far From Home

Keep this theory to yourself

Tony Stark Suffering in Space

Let me start this off by saying that I know, in the past, I have acted as if I hate Tony Stark. I do not hate Tony Stark. If anything, I secretly love him, but my allegiance to Team Cap has caused me to broadcast some animosity. I have my issues with things he’s done, but I don’t want Tony Stark to die.

So how do I feel about the theory, based on his absence from the trailer, that he is dead in Spider-Man: Far From Home? Hahahahahahaahahahahahahahah no thank you.

The idea that we won’t have Tony Stark in the MCU isn’t okay by me—many of us are hoping that he’ll survive Endgame and continue to make cameo appearances in other heroes’ stories. So I’m right alongside all the fans who have taken to Twitter to share their concern over the lack of Tony in the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer.

Because … it isn’t looking great.

Peter Parker is without his mentor. If the movie takes place before Infinity War—which no one will confirm or deny—why isn’t Tony there to help him? Someone, please save him.

And many signs in the trailer point to the death of Tony Stark.

Why can’t Tony Stark still be alive?

I’m going to just ignore the signs.

Because …

Now, obviously, Tony Stark couldn’t appear in the trailer because that could potentially ruin the reveal of his fate in Avengers: Endgame. While we expect that Far From Home is situated after the events of Infinity War/Endgame, Marvel and Sony haven’t been keen to clarify the timeline; Far From Home goes so far as to not show the dates on Peter’s passport.

Sure, we know that most of Infinity War‘s dusted will likely come back, but Tony’s life or death in the final fight is bound to be one of the biggest moments of the movie. So it’s not surprising that fans are picking apart the trailer for any advance signs that might point to what happens.

I, however, am just going to pretend the trailer was like “Oh Tony became a stay at home dad and was too busy to realize something was going wrong” and then he’ll show up later. Let’s Mr. Mom Tony Stark, please.
