Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios today released the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home and the trailer has some Marvel fans concerned for Tony Stark.
In the trailer, Happy Hogan is seen carrying a large check from the Stark Relief Foundation. The check is signed by Pepper Potts, the co-founder of the foundation. Her signature on the check has fans worried that Tony wasn’t around to sign it himself because he didn’t survive the events of Avengers: Endgame.
But that isn’t necessarily the case. A relief foundation is not the same thing as a memorial foundation. It isn’t necessarily named in the honor of someone who died. More likely it is named for Tony’s company, Stark Industries.
As for the signature, Pepper Potts is the CEO of Stark Industries, having taken over the position in Iron Man 2. If the relief foundation is backed by and named for Stark Industries, it would make sense that Pepper is signing the checks.
That doesn’t mean that Tony won’t die in Endgame. For all we know, that check could be digitally headed to hide spoilers about the film. But as it is in the trailer, fans should probably actually take comfort that it doesn’t say “Tony Stark Memorial Foundation.”
Here’s the synopsis for Spider-Man: Far From Home:
“Peter Parker returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, the next chapter of the Spider-Man: Homecoming series!
