Marvel Studios' "Iron Man" just reached Hollywood's magical $300 million mark at the box office domestically and is quickly closing in on $550 million worldwide.

Haven't seen enough of the playboy billionaire turned vigilante? "The Incredible Hulk," currently smashing the box office, features a short but oh-so-sweet Tony Stark cameo…and you don't have to wait until after the credits to see this one!
