Black Widow has been shaping up to be quite the spectacle and with this new report coming out from the Saturn Awards. The film looks to add an extra layer of hype for hesitant fans.
A new report from Deadline states that Robert Downey Jr is set to reprise his role as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the prequel film, which is arriving in May of 2020. While many fans saw RDJ’s Iron Man make the ultimate sacrifice in Avengers: Endgame. Having Downey Jr, return one last time would be a wonderful sight for Tony Stark fans.
Disney’s Marvel Studios reigned Friday night at the 45th Annual Saturn Awards at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles. Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing film in Hollywood history, led the night in wins (six) and nominations (14) with actors from Marvel productions taking home the lion’s share of gala’s gleaming hardware.
The finale installment of the Marvel big-screen saga was named best comic-to-film release. Robert Downey Jr.’s swan song performance as Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, in Endgame earned him the best actor in a film award. (Downey will be seen in the role of Stark one more time, however, in the Marvel prequel Black Widow in May 2020.) Josh Brolin, who portrayed the calculating, grape-colored alien despot called Thanos, won as the best supporting actor in a film for Avengers: Endgame as well.
Some fans might be turned off by the idea of a returning Tony Stark but seeing how this is a prequel, it shouldn’t hurt or diminish the ultimate sacrifice made by Stark at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
As with all news and reports, everything should be taken with a grain of salt, until official confirmation happens.
Black Widow arrives in theaters May 1, 2020
