The new Audi promotional video starring Robert Downey Jr. may contain a huge spoiler as to the fate of one beloved Avenger.
If you’re wanting to go into Avengers: Endgame with as little spoilers as possible, we suggest you stop reading now.
***WARNING: Potential spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below!***
The first official trailer for the highly anticipated Avengers film dropped last week, leaving us with numerous plaguing questions.
One of the biggest concerns involves Iron Man, who we see stranded in space and without food or water. He’s quickly running out of air which prompts him to record one final message for Pepper Potts.
Fans have been questioning if and how Stark will find his way out of this one. We’d like to think the Russo Brothers and Marvel Studios wouldn’t kill off Iron Man so quickly in the film, but after destroying half the Avengers… who knows?!
Luckily, thanks to the new Audio promo video, one very massive clue has been revealed as to Stark’s fate.
Marvel teamed up with the German automaker to introduce the new Audi e-tron GT which we’ll see in the film slated to hit theaters early next year.
The video shows Downey in conversation with Audi Head of Design Marc Lichte, where he says he would like to drive the car. Lichte tosses out that he already has, bringing Downey to tack on, “As Tony Stark in Avengers 4 out Spring 2019.”
Obviously this points to Stark surviving and making it off the ship. However, the scene in question COULD be a flashback since we know some sort of time travel will be involved in the film.
Does this slip-up reveal the fate of Tony Stark or is it nothing more than a reference to a flashback?

Marvel has gone through some pretty intense measures to avoid any and all spoilers for the upcoming film. The actors were not aware of the film’s actual title until the trailer dropped, plus they were never given full scripts through the entire filming. If anyone wanted to read the full script, they had to go to special locked-down room without their cell phones.
Do you think the Audi promo reveals the fate of Iron Man? Or is it nothing more than some over-hyped misinformation? Sound off in the comments below!
