I think the implication is that the "Dummy" robot was Tony's very first invention. Which explains why he kept it around all these years. He even bothered recovering Dummy from the ruins of his home at the very end of Iron Man 3.

I liked all those neat things in the IM movies that made them feel more real.

Funny how Tony says no one has ever called him nostalgic in IM1. Recreating all those previous versions of the IM suit, and keeping his arm robot AI around points to him really caring about his past creations.

The Avengers just won the Hugo award for Best Dramatic Presentation - Long Form!

It beats out Cabin in the Woods, Hunger Games, The Hobbit, and Looper.

Pretty sure that line was meant to be sarcastic, since the next thing he says is to tell Dummy to clear all the "junk" off his desk, including the picture of his father. I mean if he's not sentimental then that picture wouldn't be there in the first place, no?

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

Here is some interesting news involving Marvel and Katee Sackoff...

Battlestar Galactica alumn Katee Sackoff is a name whose long been bandied about by fans as an ideal candidate for a superhero movie. The actress herself has fueled that fire by talking from time to time about playing Harley Quinn in a new Batman movie, or perhaps Captain Marvel at Marvel. But in an interview yesterday for the podcast Schmoes Know, Sackoff revealed that she has been in talks with Marvel about doing something for them in “the first quarter of next year.”

She was guarded about anything else, but when the podcast hosts brought up the idea of her playing Ms. Marvel she quickly corrected them saying the character was now known as Captain Marvel.

She's a good choice.

Particularly with her current short hair cut, though I prefer the long blonde hair and the 2000s swimsuit!

“the first quarter of next year.” Seems a bit early for a movie, so maybe something in the SHIELD tv show I'd guess.

I love the idea of Katee Sackoff as Carol Danvers.

Re: Avengers 2 News, Rumors, Etc. Pictures until release...

I totally approve - I think honestly as much as everyone wants like a model to be Carol - I think Katie Sackoff is far more believable as a military woman. Sure she's not super busty or curvy, but she LOOKS like she's military trained. Which is important. Carol's whole deal besides her powers is that she fought her ass off to work her way up in the military, be it the Air Force, or NASA or SHIELD. While model Carol may work in the comics, I think Katie's build fits her more realistic look. I think also with a few minor changes her current Captain Marvel costume would work very well in the MCU maybe just make the red darker and the gold more dark gold.

They could pull a Captain Atom-like plot with her: She's a Military Officer who after getting powers (maybe by radiation from a Chitauri weapon, like how Carol got her powers from the Kree) is inserted by the Government into the Super-Hero community as a Spy. But then she becomes a Hero for real.

That would be great casting if she turns out to be Captain Marvel. I totally approve.

She does seem like a good choice for Carol Danvers. I'm a fan of the character in the comics, and it would be cool to see her in live action.
