February 23rd 2019: Iron Man

It’s hard to believe this was released the same year as The Dark Knight. It would seem DC won the short term battle, but Marvel and Iron Man won the long term war. Iron Man was an adequate film, with adequate action and effects, a not so great villain, but god damn did Robert Downey Jr knock it out of the park.

This was the beginning of it all. A franchise that has gone on to take over the world. It wasn’t Spider-Man or the X-Men that kicked it all off, better known characters would have been a safer bet. Yet it was Iron Man that bared the strain of starting the Marvel universe, a ballsy movie that has paid off big time.
