On the other hand, Tony Stark is a Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist who is the most recognized face of MCU. He has literally carried the weight of expectations on his shoulders and delivered amazing performances in Iron Man and Avengers movies. He got engaged to his Secretary turned fiancee Pepper Potts at the end of Spiderman: Homecoming.
For the first time, in the Avengers: Infinity War, we saw an emotional side to Tony. In the very first scene, he is walking in the park with his fiance Pepper Potts and he told her about his dream of having a child together in the future. And then suddenly he is interrupted by Doctor Strange, so we couldn’t get the full conversation.
Recently, in order to celebrate the release of Infinity War’s digital edition, Russos had a Twitter chat with fans, one of them asked about Tony’s dream, whether it has any vision for the future or Is there going to be an alternate reality. To this, Russos made a cryptic reply and said that it was just a dream but dreams can be mysterious.
The Marvel fans believe that when Tony was trying to connect with Pepper before he went outside the communication range, she was actually trying to tell him that she was pregnant. Another theory is that the dream was meant to draw parallels with the relationship he has with Peter Parker, that’s the reason he said that it was his responsibility to save him, and when he ultimately turned to dust, it plunged him into emotional turmoil.
Iron Man survived Thanos’ snap but lost so many of his fellow comrades. Even if he somehow manages to go back to Pepper (who’s alive), their relationship will never be the same. The actress Gwyneth Paltrow may have revealed a spoiler when she said:
“Pepper and Tony have had a real long journey together. She obviously starts as his dutiful assistant, and then the relationship evolves, and now this decade later they’re married, and they have a child. Their relationship has evolved in all of the ways that great romances evolve.”
The larger question is – Will Tony Stark ever find happiness like Downey Jr.? We will find out what’s in store for Tony in Avengers 4.
