Re: For the continuity geeks: Howard/Tony Stark's age?
I don't think so. Iron Man 2 takes place 6 months after Iron Man, which means that it's either early 2009 or september of 2008, and there's a comment Tony makes in IM2 that enforces stark has been dead for 20 years ("Been dead for 20 years and you're still taking me to school). Therefore, Howard Stark died either in 1988, or 1989, depending on wether IM2 takes place in 2008/2009.
This is my design.
Raimi or not, it's absolutely hilarious how much Sony realizes they screwed the pooch.
