“Truth is… I am Iron Man.” On May 2, 2008 that line wrapped up 126 minutes of pure exhilaration and changed pop culture forever. The Preston & Steve Show celebrates the movie that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Listen to our Iron Man podcast and scroll down to drool over Steve Morrison’s shrine:
From CaseyBoy: Happy 13th Birthday Iron Man… or should I say Happy 13th Birthday MCU Iron Man! I can honestly say that prior to 2008, I had no idea who Tony Stark/Iron Man was. In the 13 years and 20 films since, I have become an Iron Maniac and an MCU zealot! MCU Iron Man is one year older than my youngest…but I have turned her and my other 2 children into MASSIVE MCU fans! I have not been able to turn my wife onto the MCU, but that is not due to a lack of trying.
We found out this morning that there are many one spouse MCU fan households. We also found out that a lot of the time, it is the husband that is not a fan. No matter how hard we try, they just don’t see (or want to see) what we have seen for the past decade+!! I do feel bad for those poor unfortunate souls, for they have missed out of some of the most magical, intricate, action-packed, soul-crushing, hilarious and heart warming story telling and movie making that I have ever witness. What Iron Man started back in 2008 truly is a Marvel.
