Theatre[edit]

Iron Man will appear in the Marvel Universe Live! stage show.[37]

Unrealized projects[edit]

In 1989, while the third TV-movie sequel to The Incredible Hulk live-action television series was expected to co-star She-Hulk, Iron Man was being considered for both a follow-up or a solo film of his own.[38] One year later, a film from Universal Studios to be directed by Stuart Gordon was being negotiated.[39] This was still on the table ten months later,[40] and also another two years on, this time with no specific director or even studio attached.[41]
