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.

Also, something that I’d somewhat forgotten about… what was the organization that captured Tony in the original Iron Man? Again, not enough that it would ruin enjoyment of this movie as a standalone, but more of that context.
