Will Marvel’s Iron Man Return Along With These Two Avengers?

In many ways, Avengers: Endgame signaled the end of an era, with the culmination of many superhero arcs.

Now, Kevin Feige and his team seem to have reportedly dangled a carrot in front of MCU buffs with a rumored announcement that is creating a buzz online. According to unconfirmed reports, the upcoming Avengers: Secret Wars will see Iron Man, Black Widow, and Captain America as part of the larger narrative. The news which was first broken by a Marvel insider, also indicates that Downey Jr, Johansson, and Evans will be replaced by a fresh set of actors.
