MCU’s Unused Hulkbuster Design Would Have Made The Original Iron Man Movie Even More Important

  • The unused original Hulkbuster design for Iron Man would have made his first outing more important, highlighting his progression and mistakes.
  • The similarities between the original Hulkbuster design and the Iron Monger suit are stark, suggesting that Iron Man inspired himself.
  • Debuting the original Hulkbuster design in Avengers: Age of Ultron would have emphasized Stark's constant pursuit of improvement and served as a satisfying callback to his origins.
Among the highlights of Avengers: Age of Ultron was the bombastic arrival of Iron Man's Mark XLIV armor, AKA "Hulkbuster," but the unused original design for Tony Stark's ace-in-the-hole against Hulk would have made his first outing in Iron Man even more important. Iron Man was an important movie for many reasons, not least because it kicked off the MCU with Tony Stark's iconic origin story. Given that Hulk was yet to make his MCU debut, the Hulkbuster armor was notably absent from Iron Man, yet its arrival may have been heralded in the movie's final moments nonetheless.
Iron Man's many suits were often born out of necessity, as Stark encountered countless unfathomable circumstances culminating in 85 designs before his ultimate sacrifice rocked the MCU. In his ambitious attempts to prepare for every eventuality, Stark's brilliant mind found inspiration in myriad places. According to the design for the original Hulkbuster, this was as early as his first days donning the suit of armor, drawing straight from Obadiah Stane's Iron Monger rip-off.
