Podcasters… Assemble!  We were remarkably good and held off on any Marvel content for over half a year.  So now we’re breaking the seal and giving our full attention to the film that started it all in back in 2008 with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man .  Join your favourite transatlantic film review crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, and Georgia – as we head to Burger King in our Audi in search of a classic American Cheeseburger.  It's a gamechanger of a 28th episode as we discuss:

  • How much did Robert Downey Jr & Terrence Howard made for Iron Man
  • What other directors were attached to the film before Jon Favreau was hired.
  • Why Jeff Bridges referred to Iron Man as a “$200 million student film”
  • Is Iron Man just a reimagined James Bond?
  • How Ramin Djawadi composed the score for Iron Man
  • What was the first thing Jon Favreau did when he found out he would be directing Iron Man?
  • Ian & Liam come up with a great sitcom spin-off for SHIELD agent Phil Coulson
  • How Favreau pulled off the scene where Pepper puts her hand in Downey’s chest
  • What unique rehearsal trick did Bridges & Downey do together
  • How many soundbytes/easter eggs were presented here that wouldn’t show up until much later?
  • What do the voices of Jarvis and Karen (Spider-Man: Homecoming) have in common?
  • Whether or not Iron Man is the Best Film Ever
