When the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame dropped and everyone was reminded of the dire situation Tony Stark now finds himself in, the internet rallied by inundating NASA with requests to save the one and only Iron Man.
“Okay, Ms. Potts… if you find this recording, don’t feel bad about this. Part of the journey is the end,” Tony said in a recorded message for his lady love, adding, “Food and water ran out four days ago, oxygen will run out tomorrow morning. And that’ll be it. When I drift of, I will dream about you. It’s always you.
NASA eventually did respond with a tweet that read, “Hey Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for ‘Avengers, we have a problem.’ But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man.”
Everyone was very relieved.
Now, Tony Stark hisdamself, Robert Downey Jr., has responded to NASA’s offer of assistance.
“Always good to know @NASA has your back,” Downey tweeted.
To which NASA answered, “Failure is not an option.”
It’s fun to pretend, isn’t it?
