Avengers: Endgame -- NASA Offers Marvel Advice To Save Tony Stark
Even NASA is getting in on the Avengers hype. The American space agency wants to help save Tony Stark from his tough situation in the new trailer for Avengers: Endgame.
Writing on Twitter, NASA offered some advice for how to save Stark. He directed the rest of the Avengers to listen for a signal from Stark saying "Avengers, we have a problem." But if Stark's comms are down, what then? In that situation, NASA said it recommends teams on the ground to "use all resources" to scour the skies to find Stark.
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) December 9, 2018
Appreciate any help you can provide 🙏— Marvel Studios (@MarvelStudios) December 10, 2018
As you can see, Marvel Studios responded to NASA's tweet, saying it appreciates the help. If you zoom in on one of the desks at the back of the picture, you'll see one of the desk clumps is labeled "Thor," with the hammer leaning against it. What's that all about?
NASA explained in another tweet that THOR is an acronym that stands for "Thermal Operations and Resource."
The THermal Operations and Resource (THOR) officer is truly one of Mission Control’s mightiest heroes. They ensure the operation of multiple @Space_Station subsystems which collect, distribute & reject heat from critical equipment and payloads for the success of the mission— NASA (@NASA) December 9, 2018
Tony Stark is looking like he's in a bad way in the new Endgame trailer. The trailer opens with Stark adrift in space with no food or water, with oxygen about to run out. He's recording a message to Pepper Potts saying he no longer expects to get rescued.
The new Avengers trailer confirmed the movie's name, Endgame, a title that makes a lot of sense given what is expected to happen after the dramatic, cliff-hanger ending of Infinity War. The massively popular Avengers: Endgame trailer also of course raises a lot of questions, like what happened to Captain America's beard, how much time has passed since Infinity War, how Scott Lang seemingly got out of the Quantum Realm, and more.
