Considering Secret Wars as per comics, takes place on Battleworld – the patchwork realm of multiversal remnants, it’s possible that the Void shown in Deadpool 3 could replace it in the MCU. And if that happens, then TVA dumping ground could bring back a variant of Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man that survived Alioth, the guardian of the Void. 

Since characters from all over the multiverse were brought together in Void, to fight for their survival after the destruction of their respective realities, fans believe a variant of Iron Man might still be alive out there, after surviving Alioth. The location Easter egg from Deadpool 3 is certainly giving fans hope.
