How Much Would It Cost to Be Iron Man 3 in Real Life?
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.
Fictional billionaire Tony Stark is the CEO of his company Stark Enterprises, but in reality, what doesn't he do? He's a chemist, an inventor, an engineer and an entrepreneur. He may bring in the big bucks, but he's certainly a spender when it comes to being properly equipped to ward off bad guys.
In July, MoneySupermarket.com put together an infographic of what it would cost to be Iron Man, but as he embraces more new tech in the upcoming film Iron Man 3, the total cost has jumped from $1.6 billion to $10 billion.
The suits featured in Iron Man 3 total $7 billion alone — previously they totaled $1.4 billion. Among the new bells and whistles include a hyper velocity shot gun and updated armor.
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 mansion in Malibu and whole fleet of fancy sport cars.
