Trust NASA to rescue even our superheroes!
'Part of the journey is the end,' says Tony Stark as he is shown sending a farewell message to Miss Pots in the trailer of 'Avengers: Endgame'. As Marvel dropped the trailer of the highly anticipated Avengers 4 on Friday, fans of the franchise saw a distraught Tony Stark recording a message to his ladylove, while being stuck in a spacecraft far away from earth.
"Dear Miss Potts, if you find this recording don’t feel bad about this, part of the journey is the end. Just for the record being adrift in space with zero promise of rescue is more fun than it sounds. Food and water ran out four days ago, oxygen will run out tomorrow morning and I mean it, when I drift off I will dream about you, it’s always you," says Stark at the beginning of the trailer which picks up from where 'Avengers: Infinity War' ended.
The speech was so effective that it led to several fans seeking help from NASA to rescue the popular superhero. In the last few days, NASA has been flooded with tweets, asking them to bring back Stark to Earth. On Sunday, NASA's official twitter responded to Marvel dolling out some advice on how to bring back their hero.
NASA tweeted, "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(sic)"

A twitter follower with a sharp eye, observed the image that NASA had tweeted and wondered if Thor would ultimately bring him back.
