What I hope for is an in-depth look at what happened in The Avengers and how it affected Tony emotionally and financially. The man had his home turned into Ground Zero for an alien invasion led by a psychotic pseudo-god, then nearly died flying a nuke through a wormhole to the other side of the universe. Those were terribly traumatic experiences that would naturally cause Tony to have PTSD (nightmares, inability to sleep, etc.). When I saw the trailer I was happy to see that those very important issues are being addressed, rather than glossed over and forgotten.

Another thing I'm curious about is what legal ramifications might have arisen from the invasion and the damages it caused. Stark Tower was the epicenter of the attack, even though Tony himself was not responsible for it. The victims of the attack might consider Stark and his company legally responsible, however, mistakenly blaming him for Loki's destructive actions. I wonder if the script will touch on that angle at all, the fact that some people might sue Stark for damages because he seemed connected to the cause because of the portal's location. That would only deepen the problems Tony faces this time around, and it would play into The Mandarin's plans.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
