NASA has had its hands tied over the weekend. MCU enthusiasts had been pestering the space agency to rescue ‘Tony Stark’, who was found to have been in the solitude of outer space when the new Avengers: Endgame trailer broke on Friday.
On Twitter, fans desperately summoned NASA to save the despondent ‘Avenger’, who was seen telling ‘Pepper Potts’ (Gwyneth Paltrow) that he was all out of food and water, and could be out of oxygen the following morning.
“NASA, while you guys are having fun with your family and friends, ‘Tony Stark’ a.k.a. ‘Iron-Man’ is stuck somewhere in space,” clamored Twitter user charliehunter91’. “Please go and rescue him.”
It didn’t help NASA’s conscience that the trailer was viewed by millions of people—in fact, the clip became the “most viewed trailer in history” within 24 hours, closing at 289 million views at the end of the day. It surpassed the previous record-holder, which was—surprise, surprise—the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.
Not wanting to steal the reputation of ‘Thanos’ as the bad guy of the film, the space agency has since chipped in with advice for Marvel that could save ‘Tony Stark’ from his plight.
“As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for ‘Avengers, we have a problem,’” NASA tweeted. “But if he can’t communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man.”
It looks like you’ll have to wait until 26 April 2019, when Avengers: Endgame hits cinemas, to find out how ‘Tony Stark’ might find salvation.
