Whether he will come back as Tony Stark or not is still up in the air since he died in Avengers Endgame. There were rumors about Marvel bringing him back for an eleventh appearance and a cameo in Spiderman 4. Since Stark and Peter have a mentor-mentee relationship, it’s entirely possible. Recently at the Emerald City Comic-con Mark Ruffalo also teased his return. He coyly answered the fans that it’s a possibility because of the alternate timelines and realities existing in the MCU.
