this scene is just golden because tony was never planning to reveal his identity as iron man. but right when blondie laughs and says ‘i never said you were a superhero’, she obviously hit a nerve and tony literally goes ‘alright, you wanna play? i can play’, LOOKS HER STRAIGHT FUCK IN THE EYE, AND TELLS THE WHOLE WORLD HE’S IRON MAN. A SUPERHERO.
creeped out by how many people hate everheart tbh. her role in the movies was sleeping w/ tony and pepper literally called her trash for doing so, and this scene where she plays tony perfectly.
More than that, she’s the one who tells him that his companies still selling weapons. Without her he probably wouldn’t have found out in time to both save himself and stop Stane and Ten Rings. Christine is the reason we have Iron Man.
i love christine SO MUCH, i am still so bummed that tony/pepper was the endgame instead of christine/tony. (to be fair, i don’t think tony could have handled such a HBIC.)
Can we talk about that expression for a sec? Because everyone comments that the Iron Man mask is expressionless and cold.
But you see his face before that mask comes down?
That’s the exact same face.
Even his eyes are barely conveying emotion and I think that kinda scares me the most. Cos at this stage in his life? This man realised he had nothing to live for except trying to make up for what he had done. And he was going to take anyone who tried to stop him down with him.
