We also take a look at those amazing post credit scenes and discuss what they could mean in the near future of the MCU.

IRON MAN 3 Commentary
02:16:28
We venture into Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with our commentary track for IRON MAN 3, the 2013 film directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey, Jr. A certain twist midway through the film had a polarizing effect on some fans, but perhaps not the mainstream moviegoing audience at large, who made this Marvel’s highest grossing solo film to date. Perhaps a friendly debate between fellow fans is in order.
