This is the first of six reviews of the MARVEL cinematic universe. Each one will cover a different movie in the run-up to The UK theatrical release of The Avengers, which will be the sixth and final part for the time being.
1. Iron Man (2008)
2. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
3. Iron Man 2 (2010)
4. Thor (2011)
5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
6. The Avengers (2012)
This first show covers Iron Man, arguably the best of the released movies so far. A critical and box-office high for Robert Downey Junior and director John Favreau and the beginning of a new renaissance of Marvel comic book adaptations.
Joining me on the S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier to cast a critical eye over proceedings are Neil Taylor of GameBurst and KDS 2.0, Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rinse and Jerome McIntosh and Paul Gibson of Gonzo Planet.
