Avengers: Endgame fans can’t help but think about Tony’s safety as he’s about to give up, and now even NASA has joined the conversation.
The official twitter account for NASA has been hounded with many Tweets in the past few days by fans, asking NASA to divert their resources to save Stark, who’s drifting in space in the trailer. Now NASA has responded back hinting that they would do anything to try and save Tony.
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

It’s a pretty cheeky response, in part, credited to the use of “Avengers, we have a problem”. However, it does highlight the situation Tony appears to be in, especially since fans don’t know what follows next.
“[Endgame] doesn’t do what you think it does,” co-writer Christopher Markus explained earlier this year. “It is a different movie than you think it is…Also…[the deaths are] real. I just want to tell you it’s real, and the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to move on to the next stage of grief.”
“Put it this way,” co-writer Stephen McFeely added. “I think [Infinity War] is a fairly mature movie for a blockbuster. It’s got a lot of fun in it, obviously, but boy, it gets very mature. The second one is also mature. We’re going to own these choices, and hopefully surprise and delight you and get you invested. It’s by the same studio, the same filmmaking team. They were written at the same time, shot at the same time. They’re clearly connected, but they are definitely two different movies, one of which is dependent on what happened previous.”
“We broke your heart,” added Markus. “Now we’re going to blow your mind!”
