Yeah, they'll wait until people have stopped buying the IM3 disk and then they'll go for the double-dip.

Does anyone know about an Iron Man trilogy box for blu ray? Or a complete Avenger films box? I don't have any of the films and it would be neat to get them all at once.
No Iron Man trilogy box yet that I've seen/heard.
However, there is the Marvel Cinematic Phase One Collectors Set. In a handy briefcase containing the Tesseract and SHIELD Files on each Avenger.

I own it, couldn't pass it up.

Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

I saw it last night and enjoyed it quite a bit. I have to complain, however, that the story's resolution centered around Stark destroying all the Iron Man suits, presumably retiring his days as a super hero.

Except the credits end with the words "Tony Stark will return." Besides, I doubt they are planning to make Avengers 2 without Iron Man. You know, when a movie ends with a hero resigning, and the movie makes an unexpected amount of cash, causing the studio to say "Hey, let's bring him out of retirement so we can make some MORE money," I find that annoyingly contrived. So for them to retire the character knowing full well they will soon un-retire him and thus cheapen the ending of the previous film... I don't like it.

Besides, comic book characters aren't supposed to retire after just three or four adventures. They are supposed keep saving the world over and over indefinitely. (I'm not saying the movie series should continue indefinitely)

But I still like the movie a lot.

Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

It wasn't so much a sign of him retiring. He built all those suits partly as a way of him escaping his leftover trauma from New York, so him destroying them was the final step in him overcoming the trauma and coming to terms with it and himself.

It's one of those things that can be seen as an ending, but also a new beginning.

He never explicitly stated that he was retiring from the hero business. The phrase "Clean Slate Protocol" suggests that he's just starting over from scratch.

Besides, his next appearance would be the next Avengers film, and if there's something big enough going on to bring the Avengers together, then it's probably big enough for Tony to get back in the saddle. We wouldn't be seeing him in-between anyway, so no big loss.

SPOILERS






If Tony is the one who builds Ultron this time around, then that would explain what he's been up to between Iron Man 3 and Avengers 2. And when Ultron goes rogue, that's what gets him back in the superhero business.

The suits he detonated were also probably hurriedly and sloppily built, which explains why they kept breaking down. They were no big loss in the big scheme of things.

I don't think he necessarily destroyed all of his suits, just those ones that he felt he didn't need anymore.

Well, that wouldn't be a clean slate. He can always build more suits.

The first movie established that Jarvis can build a suit in a few hours. Destroying all of the suits isn't that big of a deal.

Re: "Iron Man 3" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)

The way I understood it, Tony Stark just kind of lost it in his post-Avengers trauma/panic. He went for quantity, not quality, which is why all of those army suits and his Mark 42 didn't last that long, the latter falling apart every time it hit something.

For Avengers 2, I kind of expect an ultimate Iron Man suit.

All the suits after the Mark 7 were obviously made in China.
