You had me excited, given the title, then read that it’s Marvel stuff. Will it be a stand-alone movie? Or do I have to know some things?

It’s his origin story. From what I’ve seen from trailers there are minor tie-ins (Wang from Dr. Strange appears in the trailer, as does Abomination from The Hulk, those two are seen in a cage fight like a Mortal Kombat tournament or something) but I’d guess there won’t be many heavy references. Maybe a few references to the events in Infinity War/Endgame. They haven’t officially released when this movie is set in the timeline, but my guess is it will be after the events of Endgame.

I’d also assume there are a few references to Ironman (particularly Ironman 3 who had a character going as The Mandarin).

I’d imagine it will be enjoyable as a standalone film even if you’re not an MCU addict like me.
