As the Marvel Cinematic Universe trots along and new characters and stories are introduced, many fans are understandably nostalgic for classic superheroes played by the greats. Two such actors are, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. These stars have been one of the most successful actors in the MCU and fans long for them to make a return.
We take a look at how they could make a return to the MCU in a way that would be befitting of their stature and would not mess things up.
How Robert Downey Jr Could Return To The MCU
Robert Downey Jr. played the role of Iron Man for several years in many films. Fans loved the star and he quickly became one of the most successful MCU actors ever. However, his character Iron Man met a memorable end in the film Avengers: Endgame. However, since then, fans have been egging Robert Downey Jr. to return to the MCU as Tony Stark. Nevertheless, the chances of such a return were always quite slim. His return must be epic enough to warrant his comeback. Many fans have suggested that an Iron Man variant could be the vehicle for his comeback.
The Ways How Chris Evans Comes Back
On the other hand, there is Chris Evans who gave solid performances as Captain America in the MCU. He has time and again praised the way the story of his character concluded in the film Avengers: Endgame. Evans seems hesitant to fiddle with this and has on many occasions made it clear that his return as the character has to be perfect if it were to happen. The actor has, however, shown an interest in returning as the Fantastic Four’s Johnny Storm (Human Torch). This would also be a meaningful way for the actor to stage a comeback.
