The Russian and American space agencies have encouraged numerous Marvel fans who have been in a tizzy about the fate of Iron Man ever since the release of Marvel's official trailer for Avengers 4.
"As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for the Avengers, we have a problem," NASA advised in a tongue-in-cheek tweet. "But if he can't communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man."
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— NASA (@NASA) 9 декабря 2018 г.
Someone in NASA is apparently closely watching the adventures of Tony Stark.
Russia's state space agency also stepped in. "Hi, Marvel, we have heard your request," Roscosmos wrote in its official account on Russia's biggest social media site. "Superheroes [cosmonauts] Sergey Prokopyev and Oleg Kononenko will go to outer space tomorrow to try and find the spaceship and rescue Tony with the help of our secretly developed tools. Please don't tell anyone".
Marvel Studios last week released the first trailer for Avengers 4, the last chapter of the Avengers film franchise, teasing what happens next to the superheroes that survived the previous part, in which supervillain titan Thanos wiped out half of the living creatures in the universe. Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) was dying adrift in space — and it seemed that he was pretty unlikely to survive.
The teaser sent fans into a fever, with many asking NASA to rescue Tony.
Listen @NASA forget about exploring mars and save my guy Tony Stark who’s adrift in space with zero promise of rescue. Food and water ran out 4 days ago and oxygen will run out tomorrow morning.— sᴜᴍᴍᴀя (@sshxh_) 9 декабря 2018 г.
Hey @NASA there’s a ship stuck in space, the “Benatar” it’s occupying two heroes who we need to defeat the Titan “Thanos”. Their names are “Tony Stark” also known as “Iron Man”, and “Nebula”, we’d be grateful if you used your vast resources to rescue them because— adultish bambino (@frickin9heck) 9 декабря 2018 г.
Hey! This is our guy Tony Stark aka @Iron_Man, lost is space, he's running out of food and water, oxygen is about to run out. He's our last hope, Thanos snapped 50% of all living creatures, for the rest of 50% alive, find our guy. He's our last hope. here's a pic of him. pic.twitter.com/6IlfH9hI2q— Doctor Marvel (@MrTriyoFab) 9 декабря 2018 г.
