The playboy wolf and genius Tony Stark is the successful CIO of the Stark Industries, a weapon company founded by his father. His second in command is Obadiah Stane, who worked with his father, and his loyal and professional secretary is Pepper Potts, who has a crush on Tony. While in Afghanistan to demonstrate the ultimate Jericho missile developed by his company, his military convoy is attacked and Tony is seriously wounded on his chest and kidnapped by a group of rebels that wants him to assemble a missile for their use. Tony stays with his abductors for three months and develops a powerful metallic armor to escape from the cave where he is arrested. He decides to stop manufacturing weapons in his company under the protest of Obadiah, and dedicates his time to improve the armor, manufacturing it with gold and titanium and installing a propulsion system to fly. However, Pepper discovers that Tony was betrayed by Obadiah, who is using Tony's data to build prototype armor for him, transforming it in the ultimate weapon.

More Movie Taglines:
- This Summer: Heroes Aren't Born, They're Built.
- Tony Stark: [toasting after giving a weapon's demonstration] To Peace.
Christine Everheart: Mr. Stark! Christine Everheart, Vanity Fair magazine. Can I ask you a couple of questions? Hogan: [whispers to Stark] She's cute. Tony Stark: [whispers to Hogan] She's alright? [turns around] Tony Stark: Hi! Christine Everheart: Hi. Tony Stark: Yeah. Okay, go. Christine Everheart: You've been called the Da Vinci of our time. What do you say to that? Tony Stark: Absolutely ridiculous. I don't paint. Christine Everheart: And what do you say to your other nickname, the Merchant of Death? Tony Stark: That's not bad. Let me guess... Berkeley? Christine Everheart: Brown, actually. Tony Stark: Well, Ms. Brown. It's an imperfect world, but it's the only one we got. I guarantee you the day weapons are no longer needed to keep the peace, I'll start making bricks and beams for baby hospitals. Christine Everheart: Rehearse that much? Tony Stark: Every night in front of the mirror before bedtime. Christine Everheart: I can see that. Tony Stark: I'd like to show you firsthand. Christine Everheart: [exasperated] All I'm looking for is a straight answer... Tony Stark: [removing his shades] OK, here's a straight answer. My old man had a philosophy: peace means having a bigger stick than the other guy. Christine Everheart: That's a great line, coming from a guy selling the sticks. Tony Stark: My father helped defeat Nazis. He worked on the Manhattan Project. A lot of people, including your professors at Brown, would call that being a hero. Christine Everheart: And a lot of people would also call that war-profiteering. Tony Stark: Tell me, do you plan to report on the millions we've saved by advancing medical technology or kept from starvation with our intelli-crops? All those breakthroughs, military funding, honey. Christine Everheart: Have you ever lost an hour of sleep in your life? Tony Stark: I'd be prepared to lose a few with you.
Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: [walking in on Stark's robots trying to get him out of the Iron Man suit] What is going on here? Tony Stark: Let's face it, this is not the worst thing you've caught me doing. Virginia 'Pepper' Potts: Are those bullet holes?
Tony Stark: [reading the newspaper] "Iron Man." That's kind of catchy. It's got a nice ring to it.
[after testing the suit's capabilities] Tony Stark: Yeah. I can fly.
- Rachel McAdams was Jon Favreau's first choice to play Pepper Potts, but she turned the role down.
During pre-production, Robert Downey Jr. set up an office next to Jon Favreau's office, to discuss his role with Favreau and to be more involved in the film's screenwriting.
Jon Favreau was originally going to direct The First Avenger: Captain America (2011) in the manner of a superhero comedy adventure, but he instead chose to direct this film and give it a more serious tone. Ironically, Nick Cassavetes, who was chosen to direct that film, had been filled in to direct this film in December 2004.
Jon Favreau describes the film as "a kind of independent film-espionage thriller crossbreed; a Robert Altman-directed Superman (1978), with shades of Tom Clancy novels, James Bond films, RoboCop (1987), and Batman Begins (2005)."
In the comics, Tony Stark participated (and became Iron Man) in the Vietnam War; later this was retconned to the Gulf War. In this film, the character's origin was retconned to Afghanistan, as Jon Favreau did not wish to make the film a period piece but instead give it a realistic contemporary look.
