It's been less than a decade since IRON MAN was released and it's amazing how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come since that first installment; taking a character who wasn't exactly a top-tier Marvel hero and casting him with an actor who had been experiencing personal and career problems for some time didn't exactly sound like a recipe for success, but IRON MAN...
