movie facts

The character of Iron Man/Tony Stark has since captivated audiences after Robert Downey Jr.’s stellar performance as the superhero. One successful entrepreneur and real-life billionaire was actually tapped by Downey, as well as Iron Man director Jon Favreau, to bring the eccentric billionaire-playboy persona that is Tony Stark. The inspiration was Elon Musk, CEO of Space X, the company that successfully launched into orbit a privately made rocket, Falcon 1. He is also the chief executive of a luxury electronic car company, Tesla. Reportedly, Musk has a net worth of over $19 billion dollars. He made his first earnings of $500 when he sold a computer game he made to a magazine – at the age of 12.
