Showing Tony's infatuation with Hot Rods is a very efficient storytelling tool. And through show-not-tell you can immediately deduce that: Tony loves to tinker with machines. Lives life in the fast lane. Has oodles of money (and time) to spare on pet projects. He has a very obsessive (and possessive) personality. All of these are core to the character of ...

There is no official word on the actual reason for replacing Terrence Howard from the second installment of the movie. Nonetheless, there are some speculative reasons, which were doing rounds in the industry about his departure or better say eviction from Iron Man 2 and the main thing which kept coming was.. Contract Negotiation According to Entertainment ...

Well, I don't remember the scene exactly, but I'm pretty sure, that this was meant rather sarcastic. Latin is really not an easy language and has a rather complex grammar. Besides that it's not really spoken in everyday life anymore and only read from ancient texts or used in quite specialized contexts (law and medical terms, recitated prayers), but not ...

I would personally think that this is a subtle reference to the type of person that Tony Stark is, he is what would commonly be referred to as a 'Hot-Rod' in that he has a firey temper and is quite reckless in his life. Also, it gives him the inspiration for the colour of the Iron Man suit.

Its due to Huge pay cut as rumor suggest and even due to role cut as indicated in @Incognito's answer. Here are Howard's reaction on the removal from Iron Man 2- "Marvel made a choice, and it was a very, very bad choice. They didn't keep their word. They didn't honor my contract," Howard tells Parade magazine. "They produced a great bounty with the ...

The Mark VI (6) with the triangular chest plate is created after (drunk) Stark and Rodey fight. The Mark IV (4) is a bit banged up, but nothing a quick fix won't handle. (The Mark V (5), the suitcase model is destroyed at the Grand Prix). The next day, Nick Fury gives Stark his father's old data. The very next day, he ...

I think it's surely the "show, don't tell" aspect of his ingenuity and hobby. It shows us his probable rebellious past, maybe his first car. And since he's so mechanically inclined, the car probabbly portrays this side of Stark in a raw unrefined form of his past self. Hot Rodders are always tinkering with their cars and the deep cultural history behind Hot ...

Tony's central concern with the government's attempts to appropriate the Iron Man armor was borne out of their intentions with the program: To weaponize the technology, and to create an army of the machines. Having being a former arms manufacturer, Tony is well aware of the Military Industrial Complex embedded within US politics; and having been enlightened ...

Across both the core Iron Man films as well as others in the MCU, Tony has designed a number of suits to suit various mission needs and protocols. As such, the triangular design of the Mark VI armor you're asking about could have simply been an aesthetic choice for this particular suit, and not because the power core in his chest changed. Note that the ...
