Heroes aren't born. They're built.

Director Jon Favreau and star Robert Downey Jr. began a whole new era of franchise filmmaking with the smash-hit first entry of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Billionaire industrialist and genius inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), while making deals in war-torn Afghanistan, is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man.
