Anybody who has played Marvel vs Capcom certainly knows what the Proton Cannon is: its the uber-big sucka that comes outta nowhere via a hologram of some sort used by Iron Man to exterminate his enemies right out of the face of God's green earth. And from the looks of it, its a pretty-bad ass weapon.
As Justin Hammer said in Iron Man 2: "it has the ability to bust the bunker under the bunker you just busted." Yeah, that sums it up.
Here's the cannon in action:
I know what you're thinking. You wanna see this damn thing in the movies. While that might sound a very good idea and good looking on the screen, I don't think it will happen.
Marvel Studios has the Iron Man franchise pegged on to "reality" - meaning, they're trying their very best to make it as realistic as possible. Can a superior tech like this help any future Iron Man film gig in doing that?
I don't think so.
But then I may be wrong too. We might see this in Iron Man 3. What do you guys think?
