MCU Commentary #2 - Iron Man 2 - “Slowly Vodka Dying”
January 11, 2019
Our 2nd trip into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is also our 2nd Iron Man and they talk about the introduction of Scarlett Johansson into the MCU (and who had to pass on the job), Seth Green's record short cameo in the movie and cameos from two other Stars of Marvel Movies.
Todd further reveals his aversion to technology and they talk about the animator who helped storyboard the movie.
The Elon Musk Connections to Stark and the production itself are discussed. Joe and Todd talk about their times hurting themselves and each other in the name of fun growing up and the ramifications of that fun.
The guys address a disruption by Joe's neighbours (We will tell this story another time). They give their praise to Kevin Feige and Joe expresses the need to continue finding new voices in the form of new directors into the MCU, citing the great discoveries Marvel has made so far.
Joe translates to make one line in this movie mean something totally different. Todd asks how to get on the Dark Web. A very important appearance from another member of the MCU is confirmed (though we don't believe it was intentional).
Fan theories of other big movies are also discussed.
