Which suit is it? The Marvel Movies Wiki has a list of all the Iron Man suits, along with helpful pictures. As of Iron Man 3, there are 42 in total, and we can compare these pictures to the scene to work out which suit Tony is using. For reference, here’s a picture of the suit in the panic attack scene: So what’s notable about this suit? It ...

There's a lot of real world history that shows the truth of a simple fact: if you put a real address or phone number on screen, someone will try to go there or call it, with irritating consequences for whomever lives there or has that number. This is, for example, why phone numbers on American television are always 555-xxxx. Similarly, IP addresses on ...

When Rhodes and Tony interrogate the Mandarin/Trevor, he says, “The next part may involve the vice president, is that important?” About a minute or so later, they call the VP. I assume that Trevor was aware of the VP’s complicity and told them both. Rhodes probably then made a point of having the VP arrested based on this information. The vice president was ...

Tony Stark is a known douche bag, and that incident happened before his harrowing experience in Afghanistan had humbled him a bit. It was obvious that Tony was completely focused on scoring with the beautiful Dr. Hansen at the time and was completely uninterested in what Killian had to say. So I would say that Tony lead Killian on a wild goose chase just to ...

He built some new ones. The newest suit we saw in Iron Man 3 is the Mark XLII, but a Hot Toys announcement of a new figurine for Age of Ultron reveals that he's using the Mark XLIII in Age of Ultron. He must be building new suits (along with the Iron Legion, although they seem to be unmanned drones rather than wearable suits), despite trying to start afresh ...

Well, not just the Hulkbuster suit, why is Tony even wearing any of the Iron Man suits given that it puts him in danger? Throughout the movies, remotely controlled suits and drones have always been shown to be inferior in combat performance to worn suits. See e.g. the hammer drones in IM2, the iron legion being destroyed in IM3, the iron legion again in A2.....

If you watch the scene in slo-mo, you can see him remove his leg from the Iron Man suit a few frames before Killian chops it off.

It's not exactly Cap's shield, but a Mandarin/Terrorist riff on the design. According to Shane Black, the director: [The Captain America tattoo on the back of The Mandarin’s neck] was actually part of the design of the Mandarin. He’s very “cobbled together”. It’s essentially a Captain America shield with an anarchy symbol in the middle of it. It’s a ...

There are different forms of ISDN, including rate interfaces that allow up to 1.92 Mbps, and ISDN via satellites are used to link to field reporters by the BBC and other broadcasters. Additionally, ISDN's reliability and latency is still yet to be matched by packet switched alternatives. ISDN and broadcast industry ISDN is used heavily by the ...

It sounds like a classic example of what TVTropes (Warning! Don't click -- it will eat half your day.) calls TechnoBabble. TechnoBabble is how hurried writers move the plot forward with science-y buzzwords, rather than Trying to seriously justify something that's probably impossible Slowing down the plot with a big lump of exposition. And it might also be ...

"Jarvis, get Igor to steady this thing!" ―Tony ordering Jarvis to make Igor hold the oil rig in place, to keep it from collapsing. The Mark 38: Igor - The Heavy Lifting Suit: Per the Iron Man wiki: The suit earned it's name the Igor, beacuse it has a similar resemblance to a hunchback, having a slouched and bulky appearance, just like that of an ...

Most movies use pretty generic fictional president characters or sometimes ones that are an amalgam of 2-3 recent or historic presidents unless they want to specifically represent a real president. The reason most mainstream blockbusters use fictional presidents is to remain as apolitical as possible. If you choose a real president and portray them ...

I can think of a number of fictional presidents that don't have much to do with the president of the time. The presidents in 24, Independence Day, Sum of all Fears, just to name a couple. Why would the president be based on the current president, unless it is related to the plot movie?

No, she couldn’t have. It’s briefly stared at the end of the Iron Man 3 movie, that Tony removes the Extremis from Pepper’s system. And even if that removal was unsuccessful- there’s not any evidence in the MCU that I’m aware of, which suggests Extremis regeneration is transferable like that and capable of healing anyone but whose system it’s pumped into. ...

It's stated In Iron Man 3 that Tony fixes Pepper to remove or at least stabilize (per wikipedia) the Extremis changes. As promised, I got Pepper sorted out. It took some tinkering. after Pepper was concerned... Pepper: Am I gonna be okay? Tony: No. You're in a relationship with me. Everything will never be okay. But I think I can figure this out, yeah. I ...

It might be because JARVIS wanted to conserve power for use by Tony. Though I think there might be another reason why JARVIS didn't have 30~40 autonomous Iron Man suits all bombard the oil tanker which Pepper and Tony are on with repulsors and Uni-Beams...

According to the Iron Man Wikia (based on details found on the "official JARVIS iPhone App) The Mark 42 "Prehensile" Suit is made from; "An advanced titanium alloy that can resist powerful attacks, including energy attacks, that can destroy normal materials. It is reinforced with silicon infused-steel, enhanced composite armor with ceramic plating, ...

He probably has some form of PTSD Tony experiences an anxiety attack where he apparently has a flashback or hallucination related to the Battle of New York. Tony Stark: That's why I said I...got it.

This car seen in the final scene is an Audi e-tron. Holy product placement, Iron Man!

I Don't know which mark was that specific suit, but judging by the final fight scene, all of them can do that:

934.554.32.3, if the periods are replaced with semicolons, so 934:554:32:3:: becomes a valid IPv6 protocol address. (Also note: IPv6 is 4 digits in hexidecimal, and leading zeroes in each place may be omitted. Further, up to 8 such groups may be used.) Note that 934:554:32:3:: is a valid but unassigned address at present.

Since the release of Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we can now answer this question more thoughroughly. Spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3, Thor and Agents of SHIELD below. This means;

According to film's official Novelisation, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the operating system for Tony's home computer, however, when he goes remote (and uses the Iron Man suits) it downloads itself into the suit's own computer systems: He pressed a button on a lab console and downloaded Jarvis’s program into the suit’s computer system. The armor’s heads-up display ...

It's been quite a long time since I watched the movie so I can't remember the exact specifics, but he was involved in the plot to kidnap the President in exchange for getting Extremis to cure his daughter. I think the general idea was that he'd take over as President when the current one was killed by terrorists, then would take orders from Killian, starting ...

In the comic that took place between Iron Man 2 and 3, Tony gets the armor back from Rhodey, and gives him his current suit. He claims the Mark II armor was never properly calibrated and was surprised it didn't put him into cardiac arrest.

Unknown, but certainly not any time soon. At an event earlier this week, Marvel announced their Phase Three lineup which doesn't include a fourth Iron Man film. This means the earliest we could have Iron Man 4 would be 2019 (when the last Phase Three film is due to be released). After the announcement, Kevin Feige was asked about the prospect of another ...

There isn't anything in the official canon that addresses this, I believe, but there are a few significant details: We do see Killian looking better during the video clips of the Extremis development. He's a crazy guy, but I doubt he'd experiment such a volatile process on himself first, before it worked on others. Plus, his haircut and physicality ...

I'll talk only in the scope of Age of Ultron. Operating Veronica remotely would mean a continuous open channel to the suit. This, with Ultron on the loose, doesn't sound like such a good idea! For that matter, we do not see Tony operate any suit remotely in the movie at all, not even his regular MK43. Also, at that point,

Killian did not start the Ten Rings terrorist group seen in the original Iron Man. Rather, in coming up with ways to cover up the failed Extremis experiments, Killian and the A.I.M. think-tank settled on using terrorist bombings as cover, co-opting the Ten Rings icons to sell the ruse. The Marvel One-Shot: All Hail the King released with Thor: The Dark ...
