Back when this movie came out I was super excited for it but unfortunately it came out around the same time as the Dark Knight so I wasn’t nearly as excited. At the time, I think most people expected this to be more run of the mill type of comic book movie because as far as I was concerned Ironman wasn’t nearly as popular as other characters. Little did I know how awesome this movie would be. @robertdowneyjr not only made an enjoyable character to watch on screen but he solidified his career for...pretty much ever. Not only was this movie a success, but it was the beginning to what is now referred to as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I, honestly, think they aren’t so much movies as they are one interconnected tv series with a multi-billion dollar budget spanning nearly 20 movies. Now, other franchises have tried to implement this idea but no one can really beat @marvel. Anyways, this one in particular was a risk because @thejeffbridges made a statement saying that they didn’t have a script when filming and he considered it like a “student film”. That takes some serious improv skills. Although, Marvel has done away with some of the tropes that this movie started, this still holds up and is always enjoyable to come back.
