The Infinity Saga: Iron Man (2008)

The Book Of Marvel – Phase 1, Chapter 1

In the beginning, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was without form and void. And Jon Favreau made Iron Man, and it was so.

In the summer of 2008, my wife and I went to a local drive-in theater to check out two movies: Transformers and Iron Man. We both expected Transformers to be the better of the two options. After all, who knew about or cared about Iron Man at the time? He was a pretty minor Marvel character compared to, say, Spider-Man or the X-Men.

When we left, we both agreed on two things – Michael Bay needed a kick in the balls for the absolute shit fest Transformers turned out to be, and Iron Man was a surprisingly good movie.
