This post is part of the Age of Ultron Aftermath series.

So, you’ve seen Avengers: Age of Ultron six times, and you’re wondering, ‘what does this mean for my favourite character?’. In this series of articles, we’re going to take a look at where each character has been left, and use what we already know, as well as some speculation, to discuss what the end of Age of Ultron means for each of the Avengers. Needless to say, spoilers ahead for Age of Ultron.

Age of Ultron – What Does it Mean For Iron Man?

Iron Man is probably the most popular character in the Marvel cinematic universe, but he’s one of the few that doesn’t have a solo film planned for phase three of the MCU. However, that doesn’t mean we’re not going to see him again. He will of course feature in both parts of Avengers: Infinity War. Well, that’s the assumption. Killing Tony Stark at the end of Infinity War Part 1 would be a huge shock to most viewers, and could help up the stakes for the second half of the story.

Robert Downey Jr. is also confirmed to appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. Iron Man is a huge part of the Civil War story line in the comics, so for him to not feature in this adaptation would have felt very strange.

Age of Ultron – What Does it Mean For Iron Man?

All this being said, the end of Age of Ultron sees Tony stark hinting at the fact that he’s giving up being Iron Man. Judging by the expensive looking new avengers facility, he probably still has a hand in financing the team, as well as generally being witty and irritating other characters, but we’re lead to believe that he’s no longer going to be an Avenger. Didn’t he also say that at the end of Iron Man 3? How did that turn out again?
