With the Iron Man trilogy all wrapped up, we're leaving Earth and returning to the stars. But we're also coming back to Earth at the end, because if a big battle isn't going to happen in New York City, you can be darn sure it's going to happen in London.
We made it to Phase 2! Nice work, everyone. Iron Man 3 is another of those MCU films that sort of blended into the background of the larger Marvel story, so I was happy to return to it.
We made it. At last we will see the Avengers on screen together. And not just in little cameos during each others' movies, but in a true ensemble fashion. And sure, Bruce Banner looks a little different from the first time we met him, but Nick Fury and Phil Coulson are here to tie it all together and remind us that this is one giant universe, the culmination of years of careful planning.
Great Scott, Marty! Fire up the flux capacitor, reverse the polarity of the neutron flow, and activate the Time Stone - no, wait, that's still a few movies away. Sorry, the point is, we're going back in time!
We are inching ever closer to the first Avengers! Today we introduce a new player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He's a godlike figure, powerful, handsome, one of the most iconic and important characters across the MCU and the larger Infinity Saga arc.
The rewatch continues with Iron Man 2. I'll be honest, this one was never my favorite entry in the MCU. The upside is that I haven't watched it very often or in a long time, so this was like watching it for the first time all over again! We've got a new villain, a new Stark Industries CEO, and a brand new Rhodey!
Can I confess something to you? I feel like I can, since we're all locked up together in this quarantine. The "Re" in the title of this particular post is doing a lot of work. In fact, if I'm being completely honest, those two letters aren't entirely accurate. Alright, here it is: I've never watched The Incredible Hulk.
