Last summer I went back through and reviewed all the episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter that came out before I started this blog. I actually enjoyed doing that, so I’m going to pick something else to go back and review each summer. This summer, it’s the MCU movies. And what better way to start than with the little film that started it all, Iron Man?
When you first saw Iron Man, did you know that this movie was going to spawn a franchise with thirteen movies to-date (and an additional eleven scheduled), five short films, five TV series (and counting), and a whole bunch of tie-in comics? I have to admit, the first time I saw this movie I had no clue that it was going to come from it. And I didn’t realize just how much it had expanded until about 2 months before The Avengers premiered when I discovered that all these Marvel movies I hadn’t seen yet were connected to this other Marvel movie I’d seen back in college! I probably wouldn’t have been so caught off-guard if I’d actually seen the Iron Man post-credits scene… but I hadn’t. And I mean, who stayed for the credits back in 2008???
Obviously I stay through the credits these days.
But now, down to business: Iron Man.
