Iron Man 2 (2010): “What is the point of owning a race car if you can’t drive it?”
The Avengers (2012): “I am a huge fan of the way you lose control and turn into an enormous green rage monster”. (Tony Stark to Bruce Banner)
Iron Man 2 (2010): “I already told you, I don’t want to join your super secret boy band”. (Tony Stark to Nick Fury)
The Avengers (2012): “If we can’t protect the world, you can be damn sure we’ll avenge it”.
The Avengers (2012): “Uh…a Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist”. (Tony Stark to Captain America)
Iron Man (2008): Iron Man. That’s kind of catchy. It’s got a nice ring to it. I mean it’s not technically accurate. The suit’s a gold titanium alloy, but it’s kind of provocative, the imagery anyway.
Iron Man 3 (2013): My armor was never a distraction or a hobby, it was a cocoon, and now I’m a changed man. You can take away my house, all my tricks and toys, but one thing you can’t take away – I am Iron Man.
