Following the release of the Avengers: Endgame trailer on Friday, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been putting in requests to NASA for the federal agency to rescue Tony Stark -- aka Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. -- from his imminent death out in space.
The trailer starts with Stark stuck in space aboard the Guardians of the Galaxy spaceship. Stark is recording a message for his fiancee Pepper Potts, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, basically telling her that he is going to die, as the oxygen on the ship will run out in the morning. Per the message, he had already run out of food and water three days prior to recording the message.
After this heart-wrenching scene, fans of the franchise have been desperately asking NASA to rescue Tony. As reported by Unilad, concerned fans tweeted at the federal agency, some even attaching images so that NASA would easily be able to identify him when they came across him -- hopefully before he runs out of oxygen.
NASA responded to the request over the weekend, taking to the agency's Twitter account to share their best advice for finding the missing Avenger, directed at Marvel Studios itself.
"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."
