Iron Man 2

2010 superhero film directed by Jon Favreau

Iron Man 2 is a 2010 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Iron Man. It is the sequel to 2008's Iron Man, and it is the third installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Tony Stark / Iron ManEdit

  • [Having just inserted the reworked arc reactor into his chest cavity] Tastes like coconut! [Grimaces] And metal.
  • You wanna be a War Machine? Take your shot!
  • [After discovering what his father left for him] Been dead for twenty years, he's still takin' me to school.
  • [As Justin Hammer enters the Senate hearing] Let the record reflect that I observe Mr. Hammer entering the chamber and I am wondering if and when any actual expert will also be in attendance.
  • [Reading Natalie/Natasha's report on him] "Mr. Stark displays compulsive behavior." In my own defense, that was a week ago. "Prone to self-destructive tendencies." I was dying. I mean, please, aren't we all? "Textbook narcissism?" [Looks at Fury askew, who returns the look] Agreed.

Pepper PottsEdit

  • Right. Well, she did quite a spread on Tony last year.

Lt. Col. James "Rhodey" Rhodes / War MachineEdit

  • I'm only gonna say this once, get out.
  • You look like two seals fighting over a grape. …Get a roof. [To Tony and Pepper]
  • It's me, and I'm here, so get over it and move on.

Natalie Rushman / Natasha Romanoff / Black WidowEdit

  • Fallaces sunt rerum species. …Means you can either drive yourself home or I can have you collected.
    • Latin, "The appearances of things can be deceptive"

Ivan Vanko / WhiplashEdit

  • If you can make God bleed, the people will cease to believe in him.
  • Hey Tony, before you go? Palladium in chest…painful way to die.
  • I can make salute.
  • [Upon crashing Stark Expo] Good to be back.
  • [Dying words, to Tony and Rhodey] You lose.

Nick FuryEdit

Howard StarkEdit

  • [A filmed message left for his son] Tony. You're too young to understand this now, so I thought I would put it on film for you. [Gestures to his model of Stark Expo] I built this for you. And someday, you'll realize that it represents a whole lot more than people's inventions. It represents my life's work. This is the key to the future. I'm limited by the technology of my time, but one day you'll figure this out. And when you do, you will change the world. What is, and will always be, my greatest creation…is you.


[Tony, nursing a hangover after his fight with Rhodey, is eating a donut in the giant donut on top of Randy's Donuts]
Fury: Sir! I'm going to have to ask you to exit the donut.
[In the donut shop]
Tony: I told you I don't want to join your super secret boy band.
Fury: [Laughs] No no no, see? I remember, you do everything yourself. How's that working out for ya?
Tony: It-It-It-It's... I'm sorry, I don't want to get off on the wrong foot. Do I look at the patch or the eye? Honestly, I'm a bit hungover. I'm not sure if you're real or…or if I'm having deliriu…
Fury: [Interrupts] I am very real. I'm the realest person you're ever gonna meet.
Tony: Just my luck. Where's the staff here? [looks around]
Fury: [Pulls down Tony's collar to look at the marks on his neck] That's not looking too good.
Tony: Been worse.
Natasha Romanoff: [Walks up to the table] We've secured the perimeter. But I don't think we should hold it for too much longer.
Tony: [Realizing Natasha's true identity] Huh…you're…fired.
Natasha: That's not up to you.

Tony: Oh, it's good to be back. You missed me? I missed you too.
Random Guy In Crowd: Blow somethin' up!
Tony: Blow somethin' up? I already did that. I'm not saying that the world is enjoying its longest period of uninterrupted peace in years because of me. I'm not saying…that from the ashes of captivity…never has a greater Phoenix metaphor been personified in human history. I'm not saying that Uncle Sam can kick back on a lawn chair, sippin' on an iced tea, because I haven't come across anyone who's man enough to go toe to toe with me on my best day. Please…It's not about me. It's not about…you. It's not even about us, it's about legacy. It's about what we choose to leave behind for future generations and that's why, for the next year and for the first time since 1974, the best and brightest men and women of nations and corporations the world over will pool their resources, share their collective vision to leave behind a brighter future. It's not about us! Therefore what I am saying, if I'm saying anything, is welcome back to the Stark Expo! And now, making a special guest appearance from the great beyond, to tell you what it's all about. Please welcome my father, Howard. [Walks off stage and a film plays on the back screen]
Howard Stark: [In film] Everything is achievable through technology. Better living, robust health, and for the first time in human history, the possibility of world peace. So from all of us here at Stark Industries, I would personally like to introduce you to the city...of the future. Technology holds infinite possibilities for mankind and will one day rid society of all its ills. Soon, technology will effect the way you live your life everyday. No more tedious work. Leaving more time for leisure activities and enjoying the sweet life. The Stark Expo…welcome.

[During the Senate hearing on the Iron Man suit]
Senator Stern: My priority is to get the Iron Man weapon turned over to the people of the United States of America.
Tony: Well, you can forget it. I am Iron Man. The suit and I are one. To turn over the Iron Man suit would be to turn over myself, which is tantamount to indentured servitude, or prostitution, depending on what state you're in. [Laughter from the gallery] You can't have it.
Stern: Look, I'm no expert–
Tony: In prostitution? Of course not, you're a senator. Come on! [More laughter from the gallery as Tony turns to Pepper, who isn't laughing]

[After the battle in Monaco, Tony visits his assailant in jail]
Ivan Vanko: You come from a family of thieves and butchers. And like all guilty men, you try to rewrite your history. To forget all the lives that the Stark family has destroyed.
Tony: Speaking of thieves, where'd you get this design? You look like you have friends in low places.
Vanko: My father, Anton Vanko.
Tony: Never heard of him.
Vanko: My father is the reason you're still alive.
Tony: No. The reason I'm alive is because you made a shot and you missed.
[Vanko laughs]
Vanko: If you could make God bleed, people would cease to believe in Him. There will be blood in the water. The sharks will come. All I have to do is sit back and watch as the world consumes you.
Tony: Where will you be watching the world consume me from? Oh, that's right, a prison cell. I'll send you a bar of soap. [walks off]

Tony: Can I ask you something personal? If this was the last birthday party you were going to have, what would you do?
Natalie Rushman: I would do whatever I wanted to do, with whomever I wanted to do it with.

[At Tony's birthday party]
Tony: Goldstein?
Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein: Yes, Mr. Stark?
Tony: Give me a phat beat to beat my buddy's ass to.
[The DJ obliges and starts Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust" and Daft Punk's "Robot Rock" as Tony and Rhodey duke it out]

[Tony and Rhodey brawl after the party]
Tony: Sorry pal, but Iron Man doesn't have a sidekick.
James Rhodes: Sidekick THIS! [Whacks Tony with a barbell]

Natasha: We've disabled all communications. No contact with the outside world. Good luck.
Tony: Please… [Shakes head] First thing I need a little body work. I'll put in a little time at the lab. If we could send one of your goon squad down to the Coffee Bean for a Starbucks run or something like that, that would be nice.
Agent Phil Coulson: I'm not here for that. I've been authorized by Director Fury to use any means necessary to keep you on premises. If you attempt to leave, or play any games, I will taze you and watch Supernanny while you drool into the carpet. okay?
Tony: I think I got it. Yeah.
Coulson: Enjoy your evening's entertainment.

Natasha: I need your impression.
Tony: Well, you have a quiet reserve about you...
Natasha: I meant your fingerprint.

Fury: You've been very busy. You made your girl your CEO, you're giving away all your stuff, you let your friend fly away with your suit. Now, if I knew better—
Tony: You don't know better. I didn't give it to him. He took it.
Fury: Whoa-whoa-whoa, he took it? You're Iron Man, and he just took it? Little brother walked in there, kicked your ass and took your suit? [Turns to Natasha] Is that possible?
Natasha: Well, according to Mr. Stark's database security guidelines, there are redundancies to prevent unauthorized access…
Tony: What do you want from me?
Fury: What do we want from you? Uh uh. What do you want from me? You have become a problem, a problem I have to deal with. Contrary to your belief, you are not the center of my universe. I have bigger problems in the southwest region to deal with. Hit him.
[Natasha sticks a syringe into Tony's neck and injects him with something]
Tony: Oh God, are you gonna steal my kidney and sell it? Could you please not do anything awful for five seconds? What did she just do to me?
Fury: What did we just do for you. That's lithium dioxide. Gonna take the edge off. We're trying to get you back to work.
Tony: Gimme a couple boxes of that, I'll be right as rain.
Natasha: It's not a cure. Just abates the symptoms.
Fury: Doesn't look like it's gonna be an easy fix.

Justin Hammer: [Walking into hangar to weaponize the War Machine armor] Oh, yes! Oh, yes! Is it my birthday? What did you do? What did you do? Is this what I think it is?
Rhodey: Yes, it is. Hammer, I want to know what you're gonna do for us.
Hammer: What am I going to do for you? Well the first thing I'm gonna do for you is I'm gonna upgrade your software. And then, second, I think I should -
Rhodey: Hammy, that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about firepower.
Hammer: [As he chomps on a lollipop] Well, you're talking to the right guy. [Demonstrating various weapons for the armor to Rhodey and Major Allen] Claridge Hi-Tec, semi-automatic, nine-millimeter pistol.
[Rhodey and Allen are dead silent]
Hammer: Too downtown? I agree. [Lays pistol on table and picks up shotgun] M24 shotgun, pump action. Five-round magazine. You know what? You're not a hunter. What am I talking about? I'm getting rid of it. [Lays shotgun on table and picks up rife] This is the FN-2000 from Belgium. They do make something better than waffles. It's beautiful, but I can tell this isn't disco enough for you, so I'm gonna put it right here. [Lays rifle on table and picks up grenade launcher] You're looking at a Milkor 40-millimeter grenade launcher. Tear gas, smoke. Hippie control. You're tough. [Lays grenade launcher on table] Let me tell you something. Size does matter. Don't let anyone tell you different. [Picks up minigun] This is an M134 7.62 Minigun. Six individual barrels. The torso taker, powder maker. Our boys in uniform call it Uncle Gazpacho, or Puff the Magic Dragon.
[Grins at Rhodey and Allen, who remain totally silent]
Hammer: Okay. [Carrying a small box] These are the Cubans, baby. This is the Cohibas, the Montecristos. [Picking up a small missile out of the box] This is a kinetic-kill, sidewinder vehicle with a secondary cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine RDX burst. It's capable of busting a bunker, under the bunker you just busted. If it were any smarter, it'd write a book, a book that would make Ulysses look like it was written in crayon. It would read it to you. This is my Eiffel Tower. This is my Rachmaninoff's Third. My Pietà. It's completely elegant, it's bafflingly beautiful, and it's capable of reducing the population of any standing structure to zero. I call it "The Ex-Wife." [Rhodey holds his chin as if in thought] This is the best I've got. [Puts missile back in box] Are we gonna do this? Give me something here. You're like a sphinx. I can't read you.
Rhodey: I think I'll take it.
Hammer: Which one?
Rhodey: All of it.
Hammer: [Mildly in shock] All of it.

[Vanko shows Hammer how easily he can hack into HammerTech's computer system]
Justin Hammer: Good stuff.
Vanko: Твой софт - говно. [Russian; pronounced "tuh-voy soft, guhv-no"]
Hammer: [Confused] Sorry?
Vanko: Software shit.

Hammer: [After walking into the room where Vanko is working] Hey, there he is! It's the bird man. Now you like the bird. Is that right? Is that your bird? I'm confused. You said it wasn't, but now it looks like you're best of pals. You love that bird, don't you? You know what? [To the guards] Take the bird. [One guard takes the bird away from Vanko]
Vanko: Hey! [The guard puts the bird into a bag]
Hammer: [To the guards again] Take his pillows, too. Both of them. [The other guard take Vanko's pillows away from him] And his shoes. Take his shoes. [Both guards take Vanko's shoes]. I took your stuff. How does that make you feel? You feel bad? Good. [Angry] 'CAUSE THAT'S HOW I FEEL!!! We had a contract! I saved your life, and you give me suits! That was our deal. And you did not deliver. I don't know if you're a genius or a fraud. I don't know what you are. [Calm] Something really, really great fell into my lap. And if it hadn't, I'd be at your mercy tonight. Now I have a piece of Stark tech that I pimped out myself. And now your overpriced paperweights are gonna look like a backdrop to my demonstration. Do you dig what I'm getting at here?
Vanko: [In Russian]: You talk a bit too much ("Слишком много говоришь");
Hammer: [Sarcastically laughs] I don't know if you know this, [Angry again] BUT I DON'T SPEAK RUSSIAN!!! [calm again] I'm gonna leave now. I'm gonna go to the Expo. Maybe I'll even get laid. [Referring to the guards] You see these guys? They're your babysitters. They are not to be trifled with. When I get back, we're gonna renegotiate the terms of our agreement. And you're gonna make good on our arrangement because if you don't, you're gonna be exactly what you were when I found you: a dead man. You got that? [Pointing to the TV] Maybe you can watch me on TV. [Leaves; Vanko starts looking to the guards, and smiles]

[Coulson discovers the replica of Captain America's shield in Tony's lab]
Coulson: Where did you get this? Do you have any idea what this is?
Tony: That…is exactly what I need.
[He grabs the shield and uses it as a shim to level his makeshift particle accelerator]
Tony: See? Perfectly level.

Natasha: Reboot complete. You got your best friend back.
Tony: Thank you very much, Agent Romanoff.
Natasha: Well done with the new chest piece. I'm reading significantly higher output, and your vitals all look promising.
Tony: Yes, for the moment, I'm not dying. Thank you.
Pepper: [Overhearing this on the other line] What do you mean, you're not dying? Did you just say you were dying?
Tony: That you? Uh, no, I'm not. Not anymore.
Pepper: What's–what's going on?
Tony: I was going to tell you. I didn't want to alarm you.
Pepper: [Interrupting] You were gonna tell me? You really were dying?
Tony: You didn't let me.
Pepper: Why didn't you tell me that?
Tony: I was gonna make you an omelette and tell you!
Natasha: Hey, hey, save it for the honeymoon. You got incoming, Tony. Looks like the fight's coming to you.
Tony: Great. Pepper?
Pepper: Are you okay now?
Tony: I am fine. Don't be mad. I will formally apologize–
Pepper: I am mad.
Tony: –when I'm not fending off a Hammeroid attack.
Pepper: Fine.
Tony: We could have been in Venice.
Pepper: Oh, please!

[Stern receives Tony at a medal ceremony]
Stern: Mr. Stark, thank you for such an exceptionally distinguished performance. You deserve this. [Purposely pokes Tony while pinning the medal on his jacket]
Tony: Ow!
Stern: Oh, sorry. Funny…how annoying a little prick can be, isn't it?

Stern: I think "we're done" is the point he's making. I don't think there's any reason–
Tony: The point is: you're welcome, I guess.
Stern: For what?
Tony: Because I'm your nuclear deterrent. It's working. We're safe. America is secure. You want my property? You can't have it. But I did you a big favor: I've successfully privatized world peace. What more do you want? For now! I tried to play ball with these ass-clowns...
Stern: Fuck you, Mr. Stark. Fuck you, buddy.

[Post-credits scene: Coulson drives out to a crater in the New Mexico desert]
Coulson: [On the phone] Sir... we found it.
[The camera zooms back from Coulson on the rim to the object at the crater's center... a hammer].


About Iron Man 2Edit

Two men in iron suits fighting each other. ~ Shane Black quoting Marvel Studio executives summary
This is one of the richest men in the world, so we can't buy our practicals from Home Depot. Everything had to be intelligent technology, and it had to look classic enough to have some shelf life – we didn't want it to look embarrassingly dated 10 years from now. ~ Matthew Libatique
  • Favreau: We were playing at the very end… we were shooting at the very end, it was in the middle or the beginning of the movie where he was doing some work with interactive holograms. Holographs? What do ya call it? Holographs I guess. But that was just something we did as an afterthought that we animated into it, it was pretty cool. And as a matter of fact, we were contacted by, where’s Jeremy [looking for one of the guys on set]… Jeremy? What happened with the holographs, that we were doing the holograph manipulations and we got contacted by a military contractor?
Jeremy: Oh yeah, a company out of Austin, that has the DARPA contract called us, and they were like, ‘We would like to license the images from the movie for our presentation, because we’ve been working on this technology for seven years…’ [Laughing], ‘We can’t make it look that cool, but we want to show the Government what we want to do…’. So we licensed them the images and they use them in their presentation now.
  • Q: You mentioned Howard Stark. How much of a role does he have in this movie? How much of a look at Tony’s past do we get?
Favreau: A bit… quite a bit. We have John Slattery playing him this time around. So he is somebody who has passed away by the time the movie begins, but he’s definitely a presence as Robert delves into his past and explores the relationship with his dad, who we started to make certain overtures towards in the press conference. He’s definitely got “daddy issues” on some level. And as we explore the way his life’s been changed by saying that he’s Iron Man and what that really means here, now, six months later and how his life has changed. He’s already gone from somebody who is one of the most famous people in the world and one of the richest people in the world to know being a superhero on top of it. And how his infrastructure attempts to manage that. It’s like when a billionaire becomes a reality TV star on top of it, you wonder how that integrates with their life. And this is a more extreme version of that.


  • It's not the armor that makes the hero, but the man inside.
