Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) life as industrialist-turned-wisecracking superhero hasn’t gotten any easier after his debut as Iron Man. He’s still the bad boy playboy industrialist and he’s even worse in the sequel for good reason.
Stark is dying. The miraculous invention that had saved his life in the first film is also killing him and the genius inventor of the Iron Man suit has no idea what to do to stop it. He’s tried everything and has told no one since he’s, after all, Tony Stark. If he can’t figure it out, then what’s the point of asking?
And that’s where the fun begins.
