MCU in Review Issue No. 6: “Iron Man 3” (2013)

It turns out that Devin and Teddy have at least one thing in common with Tony Stark: they’re still not over how wild the Battle for New York in The Avengers (2012) was. Nonetheless, the show must go on, and so this episode we bring you their dive into the first entry of Phase 2 of the MCU, the nearly sublime Iron Man 3 (2013).

While it has remained a lighting rod of debate in the more toxic corners of the Marvel fandom, Issue No. 6 of “MCU in Review” is an unabashedly pro Iron Man 3 podcast, and Devin and Teddy waste no time staking their claim for a too-often-overlooked standout of a film. A fascinating concoction of trauma exploration, genre subversion, and one of the higher quips-per-minute counts in the first two phases of the MCU, this Shane Black overseen film also gives Devin and Teddy some prime space for their on-brand terrible voice work. Buckle up, and make sure you remember your badge so Happy doesn’t come for you.
