Now, one of the main, and most obvious, takeaways from Avengers: Age of Ultron (other than how awesome Hawkeye has managed to get in three short years) is pretty much the same one as every other Iron Man-featuring movie: It would be seriously awesome to be Tony Stark.

After all, no matter how much he's kind of an asshole, or almost inadvertently destroys the world by creating murderous sentient A.I's, he's still freaking Iron Man - and we all love him for it.

Now, a big part of that is the giant bundle of semi-inexplicable awesomeness that is Robert Downey Jr, but it's also heavily tied into the fact that owning your own set of kick-ass flying super-armor would be inherently fantastic - as Marvel Studios has proven time and time again:

How awesome, then, would it be if we could actually own real-life, honest-to-goodness Iron Man-inspired technology?

Well, we may soon find out, since:

Or, at least, that's the latest word from Samsung Mobile executive Young-Hee Lee, who's revealed that a red 'Iron Man' edition of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is on its way - though to which markets hasn't yet been confirmed. Which is obviously an awesome idea.

The only problem with it?

It isn't set to have the transparent screen we saw Tony Stark using in Avengers: Age of Ultron - which has long been teased as in development by Samsung - or even the bendable screen they've been working on for years.

And, worse still, it isn't Iron Man armor.

Which means it ultimately isn't quite the Iron Man tech we've all been waiting for...

What do you reckon, though?
