Los Angeles Tony Stark fans have taken their Avenger love to a new level by purchasing a billboard asking Marvel to “bring back” Tony Stark.
The billboard reads, “For Our Beloved Hero, Please Bring Back Tony Stark,” along with the hashtag #BringBackTonyStarkToLife.
There is also a date on the sign (April 24, 2021) but the significance of that date is unclear.

The billboard was a nice gesture from Tony Stark fans, but it may be all for not because Robert Downey Jr. has said multiple times that he has no interest in playing Tony Stark again.
Playing Tony/Iron Man was hard… I had an incredible 10-year run that was creatively satisfying.
I’ve done all I could with that character and can do other things now. Now, being middle-aged, you start looking at the back nine and realize this is all part of the journey and things end.
I am fortunate and eternally grateful to have wound up where I have.
It was a good attempt from Tony Stark fans, but like RDJ said, “things end.”
