Robert Downey Jr., presenting a bionic Iron Man arm to an exceedingly well-dressed 7-year-old fan named Alex, who was born with a partially developed right arm. The arm wasn’t built by Tony Stark, but rather by a college student named Albert Manero who makes low-cost 3D-printed bionic limbs for children. But Downey received the honor and pleasure of presenting him with his new arm, and comparing it to one of his own Iron Man suits.

The new Avengers 2 trailer has arrived online early after Marvel tweeted out a call to their fans to tweet using the #AvengersAssemble hashtag. Officially premiering on Thursday with the series premiere of American Crime on ABC and in theaters with Cinderella, you don't have to wait any longer to see the biggest and best Avengers 2 trailer yet.
Every good superhero has to upgrade his costume from time to time. Superman lost his underwear for Man of Steel. Batman got nipples for Batman & Robin. It’s just part of the superhero job. But Iron Man may be taking his job to extremes. In just five onscreen appearances — Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Avengers, Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron — Tony Stark has created an astounding 45 armors. We’re here to take a look back at all 45 of them (plus the odd War Machine or Iron Patriot).
Just in case yesterday's Avengers 2 poster reveal wasn't enough superhero action for you, we've got even more for you today. While it seemed like every superhero was crammed onto the previous poster, everyone is getting some space now with some character posters. Up first? Iron Man.
We know that Tony Stark's Iron Man suit is powerful—when fully charged, it can lift over 100 tons—but, we probably didn't realize just how heavy it is. The original suit in the first ‘Iron Man’ movie weighed over 90 lbs. That's big, hot costume to have to act in all day. And, to think, it was almost not even Robert Downey, Jr. underneath all that armor. Find out which other actors made the cut, and a lot more, in the latest invincible installment of You Think You Know Movies!
It may be difficult to believe, but we’re only four months away from the release of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ To better prepare you for what’s sure to be one seriously awesome superhero sequel, this new supercut takes you back through Marvel’s Phase Two films, all of which have been leading up to the next chapter of the Avengers saga. From ‘Iron Man 3’ to ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ relive the most intense and action-packed moments from your favorite superhero franchises.
One of the reasons why we love Marvel’s Cinematic Universe so much is that all of the heroes and films operate in a shared universe, allowing for cameos and crossovers and storylines that affect and acknowledge other films and events. But Marvel’s superhero films haven’t exactly been presented in chronological order, so if you’re struggling to unravel the timeline for Marvel’s movies, don’t worry: someone already edited the first phase of films together in chronological order, and he’ll show you how to do it yourself.
Marvel has treated Hayley Atwell's 'Agent Carter' to an official premiere date and first clip in the last week alone, but the latest addition to the 'Captain America' spinoff series has an even larger tie to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 'The Americans' star Costa Ronin has joined Marvel's 'Agent Carter' in the role of Anton Vanko, an important tie-in character to the 'Iron Man' franchise we've seen Tony Stark tangling with in the past.
There's been a lot of speculation about whether fans would actually get to see 'Iron Man 4' hit the big screen, and Robert Downey Jr. has been nothing but vague in his answers. After recent statements from him jokingly saying he'd only do it if Mel Gibson came on to direct, the actor went on 'Ellen' with another non-answer.
We've seen college course offerings focus on the 'Harry Potter' universe, comic books, and even one specifically for 'The Walking Dead,' but now it's Marvel's turn to educate younglings about the intricacies of their Cinematic Universe.
