1. Tom Cruise Was Almost Iron Man
It’s hard to imagine anybody other than Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, but Tom Cruise was considered for the role. He turned it down because he wasn’t pleased with the script. (At one point Quentin Tarantino was interested in directing.) Iron Man Stuffed Animal
Still, Tom Cruise would’ve made a better Iron Man than Nicolas Cage, who expressed interest in the part as early as 1997. Just think about ‘Ghost Rider’ and pretty much every other Cage role from the past decade for a second, and you’ll see what we mean.
2. J.A.R.V.I.S. Has a Lengthy Name
In the Marvel Comics universe, Jarvis is the Avengers’ loyal butler. In the ‘Iron Man’ films, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the name of Stark’s AI system that assists him in superhero-ing. It’s also an acronym that stands for “Just a Rather Very Intelligent System.” Now if only Stark’s robotic lab assistant Butterfingers could just get some respect. Iron Man Stuffed Animal
3. The Iron Man Suit Can Lift Over 100 Tons
When fully powered, Tony Stark can lift up to 100 tons in the Iron Man suit. Pretty impressive considering that the Hulk’s maximum lift (when calm) is 100 tons as well. Stark would later invent the Hulkbuster armor (seen below) that could lift 175 tons to be able to combat The Hulk in certain situations.
4. Iron Man Turns 50 This Year
Introduced in ‘Tales of Suspense’ #39 in 1963 at the height of the Cold War, Iron Man was first conceived as an anti-Communist hero. Over the years, he’s become more and more dependent upon technology to live and even battled alcoholism in famous ‘Demon in a Bottle’ storyline from the 1970s. Still, he’s been a member of the Avengers throughout most of his career and has battled everyone from Dr. Doom to the Skrulls. Not bad for a hero nearing retirement age.

5. Iron Man’s Suit is Close to Becoming a Reality
Lockheed Martin is one of several companies in the process of developing untethered exoskeletons reminiscent of Iron Man’s suit. Their Human Universal Load Carrier (HULC), is meant to help soldiers carry loads of up to 200 lbs. at a top speed of 10 MPH for prolonged periods of time.
The first commercial sale of an exoskeleton for medical purposes occurred in September of last year and could signal the start of an era where powered suits are available to anyone with the cash, experts say. Still, don’t get your hopes up just yet — these things can currently go for as much as $70,000. Iron Man Stuffed Animal
