AFTER suffering a huge defeat at the hand of Thanos (sorry, spoiler alert) at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, Iron Man a.k.a. Tony Stark retreated to a small lakeside cabin to mourn and brood.

Well, the good news is Tony Stark’s beautiful cabin is a real thing and is up for rent in the US state of Georgia! This discovery was made by Reddit user u/Brayud, who found the cabin on Airbnb.

For almost US$335 (RM1,394), your gang gets to … [Read more...] about Tony Stark’s lakeside cabin is up for rent!
