If you’re current with our Marvel Movies to Watch before INFINITY WAR, you know we’re on IRON MAN 2 now. Though IRON MAN 3 is my favorite of the IRON MAN movies, I do love so much about this movie. Be sure you grab my printable from the movies to watch before INFINITY WAR post! It’ll help you keep track.
IRON MAN 2
IRON MAN 2 is the third movie in Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The timeline is such that the events are occurring simultaneously with the events in THE INCREDIBLE HULK and THOR.
My nephew is totally Team IRON MAN, so I asked him what his favorite parts of IRON MAN 2 are. He said his favorite is when Tony goes to DC before the government panel to justify his use of the suit and to show them it’s not a weapon. He likes that Tony is so capable of hacking into their video files, and that he does it right in front of them. I have to agree. That is pretty epic. He’s showing them that he’s got it under control.
Another of his favorite parts is when Tony is watching the videos of his dad. Yeah, I love that part to. It is such a turning point for Tony to discover that his dad was doing all that for him. Then the fact that Tony is able to create a new element because of that is totally awesome. Like his dad knew he was going to be able to figure it out. And then the fact that it saves Tony’s life….how much better can it get?
How about THIS theory. Some in the Marvel fandom speculate that the Vibranium (the element Tony created), is either equal to the Tesseract or the sixth Infinity Stone. Loki couldn’t manipulate Tony in THE AVENGERS. Let’s watch the trailer for INFINITY WAR again, shall we. You’ll see something else that might prove that the Vibranium is the sixth stone.
At about one minute in, you’ll see that Thanos seems to have used the Time Stone to freeze Doctor Strange, Wong, and Banner, but Tony is unaffected. I can’t wait to see if these theories prove true.
More to love about IRON MAN 2
Agent Coulson. Love him. My favorite scene with him is where he’s gotta go because there’s been an incident in New Mexico…THOR! Oh and this quote, ” If you try to escape, or play any sort of games with me, I will taze you and watch ‘Supernanny’ while you drool into the carpet.” And the Captain America shield cameo…
Black Widow. Let’s face it. Scarlett Johansson rocks. I love when she’s in the boxing ring with Happy, and when she fights all the guards at Hammer’s facility while Happy gets one guy!
The little kid in the Iron Man mask. Awww! How cute and brave is he? Did you know that there’s a theory that that is little Spiderman in that Iron Man mask. Who knows, but it’s a great theory.
The scenes with Nick Fury…”I told you I don’t want to join your super secret boy band.” And Tony agreeing that he is a narcissist…yeah.
There really is so much to love about IRON MAN 2, and I loved rewatching it while looking for little INFINITY WAR tie-ins. Rewatch with me this week, and let me know your favorite scenes.
