Iron Man Celebrates 15th Anniversary with Special Disney Plus Trailer

Fifteen years have passed since the release of the first Iron Man movie, which marked the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, was a massive hit and saved Marvel Studios from bankruptcy. It paved the way for a series of interconnected stories featuring beloved Marvel characters. To commemorate the 15th anniversary of Iron Man, Disney released a special trailer on its Disney Plus Twitter account.
This celebration coincides with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which concludes another trilogy in the MCU. The success of movies like Iron Man made it possible for lesser-known characters like the Guardians to receive their own standalone films.

For those who want to revisit the Iron Man saga, all three films are available to stream on Disney Plus, alongside other MCU movies. Robert Downey Jr.’s portrayal of Iron Man has become iconic and a fan favorite, overshadowing even classic superheroes like Superman and Batman. In fact, Sony even requested Iron Man’s appearance in their Spider-Man reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming, as they wanted the character to join the MCU sandbox.

In Avengers: Secret Wars, will Iron Man be making a comeback?

Last year, the Library of Congress recognized the significance of the superhero genre by inducting Iron Man into the National Film Registry. The film’s popularity among the public was instrumental in earning it this honor.

Disney Plus remains the exclusive platform to stream iconic Iron Man lines such as “I am Iron Man” and “I love you 3000.” Though the character’s heroic death in Avengers: Endgame has left him absent from the current MCU, rumors have been circulating that Tony Stark might make a return in Avengers: Secret Invasion to help the team combat, Kang. Marvel has not confirmed these rumors, but it is clear that the studio recognizes the fans’ desire to see Iron Man on the big screen once again.

There are several possibilities for Iron Man’s return, including a different version of Tony Stark or a villainous Iron Man fighting against the Avengers. Whatever Marvel has planned, it is evident that the studio is eager to bring back Robert Downey Jr.’s beloved portrayal of the character. Perhaps by the time Iron Man’s 20th-anniversary rolls around, another MCU film featuring the character will be available to stream.

In the meantime, viewers can catch Iron Man’s appearances in all the MCU films featuring RDJ’s portrayal on Disney Plus, including Infinity War and Endgame, which offer more interactions between Iron Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
