Cheekily entitled “Man of Steel” — a reference to Iron Man’s Distinguished Competitor in the DC Extended Universe — the sculpture preserves Tony Stark’s classic three-point landing in all its metallic glory. Basso sculpted Iron Man’s image out of mirror polished steel and glass. A plaque that accompanies the piece speaks of Downey’s alter ego in the most glowing of terms.
The first monument dedicated to Iron Man in the year of his death in the cinematic world, we celebrate Tony Stark as a man who dedicates his life’s fortunes to fight for the ideals he believes in … reminding us that we are all the protagonists of our time — that the future of humanity depends on our decisions … that all of us must be heroes!
Based on the Twitter reactions, the Oltre Verso organizers might want to prepare for a new influx of tourists.
