'Iron Man 2' 10th anniversary: Fans relive best moments from film and celebrate their favorite superhero
Ten years ago, on this day, 'Iron Man 2' hit the world that saw genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) suit up to take down Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) aka Whiplash. And fans on Twitter relived some of the best memories about the film as they had a re-watch to celebrate the 10th year anniversary.
"Today 10 years ago tony stark discovered a whole new element by himself in iron man 2 and he was the happiest boy in the world," tweeted a fan. "I believe his dad discovered it and Tony was able to realize it. I could be wrong but dad was still taking him to school," a fan wrote in response.
"Can’t believe it’s the 10th anniversary of Iron Man 2, 10 years ago today it was her very first appearance in the MCU, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow," a fan said. "Can’t believe it’s been that long. Time really does fly," another added.
"Happy 10 year anniversary to Iron Man 2 where Tony Stark created a new element in his basement looking hot af," read one of the tweets. The movie also marked the introduction of two heroes — Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Iron Patriot (James Rhodes/ Don Cheadle).
One of the fans fondly remembered Stark's Mark V suit up scene followed by a thrilling first encounter against Whiplash. "Happy 10 years of iron man 2 suit-up scene," he tweeted. You can watch the scene here (via Movieclip).
"Iron Man 2 is much better in hindsight. It has its problems but ultimately it gave us one of the most faithful Tony Stark character arcs. It took me 10 years, but I respect it more now than I did then. Also, I really like that suit up the scene on the racetrack," one of the fans opined. "Iron Man 2 has its pros and cons. But it's not as bad as people say it is. I'd say he's an amateur. But, as for me, the worst movies are Captain marvel and the Incredible Hulk," a fan tweet read.
