While we all gear up to see the next chapter in Marvel's Phase 2, now seemed like a good time to look back on the film that kicked it all off: 2008's IRON MAN. Starring a then not-so-bankable Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, the Jon Favreau directed flick took the world by storm and helped to usher in the modern-day superhero storm that continues to roll on in full force. Even as great as it is, there's still some fun to be had when looking back at this "new classic", so sit back and enjoy as host Matt Kerkhoff takes you through the very first of Marvel's phase one flicks.

Fun video.
I'd still say Iron Man is up there with Marvel's best movies. Shame the sequels didn't quite hit the mark.

Marvel's riskiest gamble and it paid off MASSIVE! I remember the entire audiences cheered and clapped when Tony finally said "I am Iron Man" at the end of the movie.

Easily one of Marvel's best comic book films ever. It's too bad Marvel was never able to recapture the magic with the Iron Man sequels that made this first entry so great. Out of all of the films released in the MCU, this is one of the few films that I keep going back to more than the other ones.

And it's great to see and realize while watching that Downey Jr. IS Tony Stark/Iron Man.

Jon Favreau said he didn't have an idea for Iron Man 3 and nobody at Marvel knew what they wanted for Iron Man 3 but Shane Black made Iron Man 3 and it grossed a billion dollars worldwide.

I'm not sure what you point is martinphipps. Shane Black made the same movie he always makes. The sequels made more money because the groundwork had been laid so well in the first Iron Man. The sequels are inferior.
