People are eagerly waiting for the release of Avengers: Endgame ever since the trailer released. The sneak peek had quite a few things that made people curious about the movie. One among them was when Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) stranded on a spacecraft where he was seen recording his dying declaration.
However, because of the marketing material for the upcoming venture, the ending might have already been spoiled. Marvel had announced its collaboration with the German automobile giant to roll out a car that uses a product placement in Avengers: Endgame to launch its marketing strategy.
Audi has begun to market the relationship and thanks to a Freudian slip, we now know Stark does, in fact, make it off the spaceship. In the below video, Downey can be seen checking out a concept of the Audi e-tron GT, the aforementioned ‘Endgame-exclusive car. In the end, Downey sits down in the car with Audi Head of Design Marc Lichte and mentions he’d like to finally drive the car.
When Lichte mentions he already has, Downey lets it slip and says that the only time he drove the car before was as his Marvel Cinematic Universe counterpart.
“As Tony Stark in Avengers 4 out Spring 2019,” Downey Jr. said while turning his head to look at the camera.
While it’s not all too surprising that Stark makes it back to Earth — there are leaked set photos revealing him in New York — there had been a growing contingent online that the tech genius might end up perishing on the ship after it eventually runs out of air.
So, do you think it was a spoiler or some kind of marketing strategy by the team to keep up the curiosity levels of audience.
