The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, posted a message on its social networks, alluding to the advertising trailer for the new Marvel Entertainment movie, Avengers: Endgame and how to save Iron Man.
NASA’s answer comes after Marvel fans bombard the space agency on social networks asking them to save Tony Stark.
But is it really endgame for Tony Stark?
It’s looking like he’s in a bad situation in the new Avengers movie.
The trailer opens with Stark drifting off in space with no food or water, and worst of all with oxygen levels below the minimum. Iron Man is stranded on a dying alien spaceship, away from home, away from hope.
He’s recording a message to Pepper Potts saying he no longer expects to get rescued:
“This thing on? Hey Miss Potts. If you find this recording don’t feel bad about this. Part of the journey is the end. Just for the record, being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds. Food and water ran out four days ago, oxygen will run out tomorrow morning… that’d be it. When I drift off, I will dream about you. It’s always you.”
A piece of fan art from Instagram user SpdrMnkyXXIII imagines the tragic follow-up to this clip, showing Pepper watching Stark’s transmission.
And while Tony Stark is driting off into the emptiness of space, away from the love of his life, accepting his fate, Avenger’s fans have turned to NASA asking for help to save Ironman and bring him back home:

Eventually, NASA responded offering help.
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 pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq

Avengers: Endgame will release on April 26, 2019.
