I love Spider-Man. He’s forever been my favorite superhero, so the thought of a new movie being out in less than a month, under the creative influence of Marvel itself, should have my excitement levels through the roof. But they’re not, and that’s mainly because of the presence of a particular billionaire playboy…
The Internet’s favorite fan casting choice, Nathan Fillion, is not in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But that wasn’t always the case. Last year, fans caught a glimpse of some very interesting posters of Fillion on the set of the sequel and now writer-director James Gunn has explained what happened.
The latest trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming has its share of hints and Easter eggs. Some big, others small. All of them pale in comparison to one shocking reveal, involving Tony Stark, Peter Parker, and a T-shirt.
When Civil War chose to lay the groundwork for Spider-Man’s costume at the feet of Tony Stark rather than Peter Parker, we all knew it meant there was going to be some techy-upgrades to the classic Spidey Spandex. But new footage from Homecoming gives Peter a new trick up his... well, not-sleeve that’s straight out of…
Mere days before 2016 comes to a close, Marvel’s “summer” event series Civil War II has released its last issue. But Civil War II wasn’t going to go down without at least adding a few more twists to the future of the Marvel Universe... and oh boy, did it add some.
Companies like Hot Toys are known for their incredibly realistic action figures, but you can only pack so much detail into a toy that’s 12-inches tall. So a Chinese company called The Toys Asia has taken the concept of an action figure to a whole new level with a life-size, fully-animated version of Iron Man’s armor.
Tony Stark’s future in the Marvel Universe has been thrown into doubt ever since the start of Civil War II—and made even more doubtful when we learned that he would be replaced as Iron Man by not one, but two different characters. One of those Iron Men debuted today in Infamous Iron Man, giving us a major hint about…
Tony Stark, leader of the Marvel’s technological revolution and freaking Iron Man, uses a Vivo V3—a mid-range phone available exclusively in China. According to Geek, he uses it because Chinese audiences love Marvel movies (bullshit Dr. Strange casting aside), and Marvel loves targeted product placement.
Here’s your cool gif for the day: The evolution of the MCU Iron Man in 30 seconds, showing off the various iterations of Tony Stark’s armor.
Tony Stark’s Iron Man is easily one the most popular character in the Marvel movie-verse. Once the Secret Wars smoke clears, Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez are tasked with making him just as popular on the comic page. It’s not going to be easy.
Since the Iron Man arc reactor is a fictitious device, and it has no official scientific explanation in the Iron Man canon that I'm aware of, we might as well something up. Now, I'm mixing real science and fake science here. So physics nerds and comic-book nerds: Deal with it.
What would the glossies and gossip mags all be buzzing about if real superheroes destroyed New York City while protecting the world from CG aliens? Probably a lot like this.
This music parody video from wekejay of Justin Timberlake's "Suit and Tie" has a ton of good in it: a spot-on Tony Stark, an excellent merging of the set from the original Timberlake video and the Stark Expo from Iron Man 2, Rhodey's guest rap...
Okay, this is kind of bad-ass.
Like Tony Stark, Eddie Zarick is a bit of an inventor. And like Tony Stark, Zarick had a Pepper Potts in his life he wanted to lock down. So like Tony Stark, Zarick built himself a mini-Arc Reactor, but instead of sticking it in his chest to use its electromagnetic properties to keep shrapnel from slowly tearing its…
Fresh on the metal heels of last week's insanely spoilery on set Iron Man 3 set photo, Marvel has released the very first "official" Iron Man 3 picture. Which shows Tony Stark taking in his vast collection of Iron Man suits.
As many of you have pointed out in the comments, this actually happened quite a few years ago, way back in 1993. But it's still a fantastic story, and if you only follow Iron Man's adventures in the movies, it actually makes Tony Stark seem like a fictional version of Emile Leray.
As one of io9's Hergéophiles, I've been absolutely digging Dan Hipp's apocryphal adventures of Tintin. Now he's teamed up the boy reporter with a familiar playboy industrialist. Will Tony Stark put Captain Haddock on the path to sobriety? Tintin's armor really should have a built-in tungsten cowlick, though.
More than his vast fortune or rocket-soled boots or even Pepper Potts, the thing I envy most about Tony Stark are his computers. Here's a video of how motion design company Prologue perfected Tony's fantastic holographic interfaces.
