Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is set to be released in just a week, bringing the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe to a new era.
The days of Tony Stark's leading Avengers that drew so many fans into one of the greatest fandoms of the modern era are gone, and in its place is a world destined to be defined by its villain as Earth's heroes battle his terrifying powers.
Jonathan Majors will most likely be competing with Robert Downey Jr. in terms of MCU clout, with Kang the Conqueror already appearing like an antagonist for the age, judging from his previous appearance in Quantumania.
Iron Man and Kang will never share a room, but r/marvelstudios would never allow a silly nuance like canon to hinder their ability to express their ideas freely, and they happily imagined what this might-be legendary interaction might have been like.
Kang would be the one who wants to have a serious conversation/exchange of blows, while Tony would likely treat him as any other danger, albeit with a side of admiration for Kang's technological achievements.
Others erred in implying that Iron Man would not be among the many Avengers murdered by Kang over the years.
Kang might invoke Tony's own words against him in the ultimate "gotcha" moment, according to another user.
This one is a dangerous line to walk, lest these theories lead to more of the same delectable Iron Man resurrection arguments, but as Kang accelerates his drive to overtake Iron Man as the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is the one inch we're happy to give this particular group.
