Spoiler Alert: Iron Man Continues to Play Favorites With Other Avengers

The Avengers movie doesn’t come out until 2012, but Iron Man is already doing his part to bring the superheroes involved together. Nick Fury and Captain America's shield appeared in the first Iron Man. Then Robert Downey cameoed as Tony Stark in The Hulk. Now comes news that Thor's hammer will make a big ol' crater in the ground during the Iron Man 2 end credits. This all creates the question: Why does Iron Man persist in ignoring that other Avenger, Ant Man?! He can't throw the much less impressively named superhero a bone? Seriously, Tony Stark, this pettiness is unbecoming. [/Film]
