Avengers: Endgame Trivia #119: While watching Robert Downey Jr nailing the style with his Iron Man, there have been many of us who have wished to own the suit. We know, it’s economically impossible to achieve that similar suit technically but one can wish for it.
Not just wish, there are people who have done cosplays to attain that look. Some pass, some fail but at the end of the day, we all love Iron Man 3000. What if we say there’s a hyperbolic price tag at which you can get the exact same Iron Man suit as advertised?
Well, folks down at Mashable did the math back in 2013 (way before the Endgame) and they concluded a monumental figure for the same. According to their report, “It would cost $10 billion to fund superhero Iron Man‘s lavish high-tech lifestyle in Iron Man 3 — about $9 billion more than past films.”
Yes, $10 billion dollars! Can you even imagine that? Not just this, they also did a breakdown for the same. It reads, “The suits featured in Iron Man 3 total $7 billion alone — previously they totalled $1.4 billion. Among the new bells and whistles include a hypervelocity shotgun and updated armour. Some existing technologies include rocket-propelled boots that make him fly ($3.8 million), helmet with projected holographic displays ($54 million) and the arc reactor nuclear power source built into the chest of his suit ($26 million). Not to mention his $25 million mansions in Malibu and a whole fleet of fancy sports cars.”
Well, isn’t this super-crazy? To all you Iron Man and Robert Downey Jr fans out there, will you even try to attempt to build this suit? Share your thoughts.
