* DracoInLeatherPants[=/=]GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Judging by the internet, a significant portion of Russian viewers seems to be [[RootingForTheEmpire rooting for Ivan Vanko/Whiplash]], despite his villainous status. Given that his behavior qualifies him as a MagnificentBastard and he comes across as a much more credible and threatening villain than Justin Hammer, combined with some patriotism, this is no surprise. Not to mention that he sets out to avenge his ripped off father, a [[AntiVillain much more sympathetic goal than the other villains in the films.]] Of course, a lot of people ignore the fact that he attempted to kill Tony for something his ''father'' did before he was even born, murdered several racecar drivers at the Grand Prix, both Hammer's security guards, and both a prisoner and a guard while locked up, as well as shot up the Expo and left bomb-loaded drones strewn about.

** Ivan Vanko's speech is hilarious when you take into account Tony Stark's well-known alcoholism. "If you could make God bleed, people would cease to believe in Him. There will be blood in the water." Knowing Tony Stark, [[IncrediblyLamePun there probably already is blood in his water...]]

** According to WordOfSaintPaul, the Expo kid wearing an Iron Man helmet from the climax, was a young [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Prker]] and he was played by director [[Creator/JonFavreau Jon Favreau]]'s son Max Favreau. Two years after this film came out, and the [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan unrelated Spider-Man movie]] has another actor named Max (Max Charles) playing a young Peter Parker, before he [[TimeShiftedActor grows]] [[Creator/AndrewGarfield up]].

** The kid wearing the Iron Man helmet got a lot more popular once it turned out that he was really a young Peter Parker, to the point where detractors point to his cameo as being the best part of the movie.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: The kid who was dressed as Iron Man at the Stark Expo was later revealed by WordOfGod [[spoiler:to be a young Peter Parker]]. This makes the scene in the climax especially heartwarming as [[spoiler:Tony's compliment to him probably helped kickstart Peter's superhero career after he got his powers.]]

** Ivan Vanko's speech is funny when you take his choice of words and apply it to Tony Stark's well-known alcholoism. "If you could make God bleed, people would cease to believe in Him. There will be blood in the water." Knowing Tony Stark, [[IncrediblyLamePun there probably already is blood in his water...]]
