Tony Stark/ Iron Man may have sacrificed himself in “Avengers: Endgame” but that doesn’t mean we won’t see on screen again.
Word on the street has it that Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to possibly reprise his Iron Man role for a potential “Ironheart” series for Disney+. Marvel apparently is keen on doing Disney+ show that centres on Riri Williams.
Riri Williams is the teenager who continues Iron Man’s legacy in the comic books. We could very see her as the newest Iron-based superhero. Similar to Paul Bettany’s J.A.R.V.I.S., Downey Jr. will likely return in a voiceover capacity for her suit’s AI.
The most telling clue of “Ironheart” was when the 54-year-old actor recently brought the female hero writer Eve Ewing up on stage at the Film Center Gala few months ago. He publicly proclaim that Ironheart needs to be included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The real story here is that @RobertDowneyJr said publicly in a room full of people that #Ironheart should be in the MCU. I went straight back to the press area afterward and was like YOU ALL HEARD IT, WRITE THAT DOWN https://t.co/WoursjnRdW

This seems like the most logical move seeing as how Spider-Man is no longer in the MCU (for now).
