marvel's iron man 3


I just realized that each 3rd Marvel Solo superhero film has a repeated pattern…

Iron man 3: Stark lost/got rid of the arc reactor

Thor 3 (aka ragnarok): Thor lost his hammer

They all lost a symbol of themselves. For Stark, the arc reactor was a literal part of him, keeping him alive all those years. For Captain America, the shield is a symbol of freedom and the one thing that was around from his past. For Thor, his hammer is the symbol of his power. 

In every 3rd solo movie, they have lost their symbol if you will and become all the better for it. Stark no longer has to worry about whether he’s going to die if the reactor fails. Cap no longer needs the shield cause he has Bucky and doesn’t need to hide behind a shield anymore. Thor no longer has to rely on his hammer for his power, but is now the source of power himself.

I don’t know if this was intentional, but since it’s Marvel I’m gonna say yes. So Props, Marvel.

Just a few posts I collected that are nice examples of how Tony Stark is not just some self-centered jerk.

     I’ve said it before, but you can’t take everything the man does at face value. He’s a deep and very human character that you have to pay close attention to and try to understand.

It’s been 6 marvel movies and 10 years and there’s still people out there who thinks that Tony Stark is just a narcissist addicted to fun and partying with no sense of responsabilty or deep feelings and I’m still laughing

When Jarvis says “it is my diagnosis you experienced a severe anxiety attack” it-it was amazing. And tonys quiet little “me?” was the coolest thing. I’ve just-ive never felt so amazed at something and so proud about a movie in my life. The realization that “yes, they’re going there” almost made me break down crying. Iron Man will forever be my favourite trilogy and favourite character and I blame that scene, when they stepped up and made a superhero someone so painfully real that I felt what he was feeling. Amazing.
