After a slight robot malfunction outside of the Main Street Cinema and some breathtaking anger management issues, our hosts Tracey and Scott begin to prepare for the latest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. To do this, they head back to the start of the MCU by taking a look at the first two films in the series, Iron Man (directed by Jon Favreau) and The Incredible Hulk (directed by Louis Leterrier) – both from 2008. They discuss the production, cast and the public and critical reaction to both films, as well as share their own thoughts. Will loving these films be easy and their colors be like their dream?
After all the superhero fun, our hosts check in with Mortis over at the Main Street Cinema and wrap up the show with some podcast houeskeeping.
