Serena Williams makes fun of Alexis Ohanian

Alexis Ohanian, Serena Williams‘ husband, expressed his sadness for the death of Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The iconic role was played by Robert Downey Jr., the Hollywood star. Ohanian posted a photo holding Stark’s helmet with a caption, “Alas, poor Tony.”

Tony Stark died in the 2019 film, Avengers: End Game. It was the last film in the Avengers series and even though two years might not seem like a long time, in the minds of Marvel buffs, it’s been ages. Serena, who has on several occasions confessed that she’s a huge Marvel fan, didn’t let the opportunity to make fun of her husband go.

In the comments, she wrote, “Honey, you are late,” followed by a wink emoji.
