anyway are you speaking of Phase 1? 'cos before that era most of the marvel movies sucked, and that a fact any nerd cant deny. You know, I really think has been a combination of both political/economical affairs thereby the chance to use talented artists for the scripts, direction, cinematography and so on plus Stan Lee is immortal, right? , I do really think he's been very crucial to most of the choices for Phase 1 and possibly 2. Unfortunately Standor will only have a piece of his adoptive father's empire LOL
Anyway Iron Man 1 is still a great film per se, they did a mess in 2 and 3 (what heck happened to Mandarin??? marvel still need to explain me )
"The most powerful man in the universe..."
"Where hope seems lost..."
"I was summoned on the future..."
"A hero shall emerge to protect Eternia..."
Whats next ?
"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings, but freedom isn't free."
