Marvel Movie Marathon Iron Man

Can any movie go wrong when it starts with a blaring AC/DC song? I think not. This is the first real movie in the Avengers series and introduces us to the larger than life character of Tony Stark/Iron Man. After being held hostage, billionaire engineer Stark creates a technologically advanced suit of armor to escape his captors and fight against the evils of the world.

Viewing Locations*

Amazon Prime, DVD and BluRay

Amazon also offers a box set of all three Iron Man movies.

*These viewing locations are only good for the date of publication. DVD and streaming options change constantly.

Marvel Fun Fact

Do you think Iron Man’s suit is science fiction that could never happen? Not so fast. Lockheed Martin is one of several companies developing what they call an untethered exoskeleton. Human Universal Load Carrier (HULC), will help soldiers carry loads of up to 200 lbs. at a top speed of 10 MPH for prolonged periods of time. However, if you want one you better save your pennies. The commercially produced HULC will cost as much as $70,000.
