Story of The Spy Kids

The first five films are set in the same universe as the children’s chapter book by Robert Arthur.” From a child to an adult, it is hard not to be swept up in this extravagant adventure.

Owen Wilson essentially becomes Iron Man in the Secret Headquarters trailer

The Secret Headquarters trailer turns Owen Wilson into Iron Man, and he’s awesome. Viewers are introduced to an office where there are suits hung up on a wall as well as technology everywhere.

This is where ideas come to life, turning from just thoughts or drawings into something real – much like Tony Stark builds his suit for when he needs it most (or does he?). The people in this space are all wearing the same uniform, indicating that they’re all part of the same team.

This resembles the Avengers and their S.H.I.E.L.D gear, but it’s also like Stark Industries in many other ways – from the fun-loving employees to the technology used in both places, S.H.I.E.L.D.

Also, Stark Industries are very similar in how they operate and what their missions are, which is why it will be very easy for moviegoers to fall in love with this Marvel property as much as Stark Industries is loved by fans of comic books and Iron Man alike (talk about being awesome).
