With the largest opening in history, everyone is talking about Avengers: Infinity War. So we thought, as we celebrate 10 years in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, let’s go back to the beginning and look at how we got here.
This week, we discuss all of the films BEFORE Infinity War. We begin with Iron Man, and how Marvel gambled on a risky talent by the name of Robert Downey, Jr. While he is beloved worldwide for his portrayal of Tony Stark, as well as many other projects, he was very much an actor studios were leery of. By staking the entirety of their future on him, they hedged what turned out to be one of the greatest bets in cinematic history.
From here we move on to discuss everything else Marvel has attempted to do in the past 10 years. From their struggles – recasting Bruce Banner and War Machine – to their insane successes (what’s a Guardian of the Galaxy again?), we tackle it all on this extra-Marvelous episode that any film fan won’t want to miss.
AFTER this discussion, we take off the Spoiler Gauntlet and jump into Avengers: Infinity War! What we loved, what we loathed, favorite moments, personal experiences, and especially: what we thought of that ending! There is a lot to talk about this week, so take a listen.
Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.
