Iron Man's Suit Has Been Stolen, LAPD Investigating
Who's got the suit?
Iron Man might be one of Marvel's mightiest heroes, but it doesn't mean he can't be the victim of common theft. It has been reported that the suit worn by actor Robert Downey Jr in the original Iron Man has been stolen from storage in Los Angeles.
According to the LA Times, the suit is believed to have been taken from a movie prop storage facility in Pacoima, LA. sometime between February and April 25. The burglary is being investigated by LAPD's Foothill Division, and the suit is reportedly valued at $325,000.
Iron Man was released in 2008 and marked the first movie in what became the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was one of the year's biggest hits and helped Robert Downey Jr become one of the highest-paid actors in the world. To date, he has appeared as Tony Stark in nine movies in the MCU, including Avengers: Infinity War, which was released at the end of April.
In related news, Infinity War continues to dominate the box office. In the US, it is expected to top the box office charts for the third week in a row, with an estimated take of $50-$60 million. The film has earned $1.2 billion globally to date and is also expected to enjoy a massive boost when it opens in China this weekend.
