Yes. But there's no way Stark could've known that.
For more realistic casualty moments, DC comic films are supreme.
An IRON MAN movie with more Stark and less Iron Man is acceptable to me. I suppose you could've called this movie TONY STARK. Not all Iron Men are Tony Stark now, but Tony Stark is still Iron Man. (Though having the ''I am -----line at the end of so many superhero films is quite the cliche now.) Remember that in the first ROBOCOP film, much of what made it a classic was Peter Weller getting his face back, so to speak. And his identity. If we have less Downey, you get more stuntmen. In IRON MAN 3, you get more of both.
