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. To prove that it’s the same cabin, he posted a picture of the front door next to a screenshot of the final scene in Avengers: Endgame in the same thread. The catch? You’ll have to fork out a few thousand ringgit just to spend a night there. The good news is that you may be able to spread the cost because the cabin can host up to six guests. For almost US$335 (RM1,394), your gang gets to … [Read more...] about Tony Stark’s lakeside cabin is up for rent!
