I receive a screener of Iron Man 3 to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.
Marvel releases their newest film this week on home video so to celebrate, I watched a marathon of movies capped off by a screener for Iron Man 3. I started with the original Iron Man movie, followed by Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Hulk, The Avengers, and then the main event, Iron Man 3. The new film has the same comedic sense, witty dialogue and superhero action as its predecessors making it a sequel worth watching and collecting.
In Iron Man 3, the story picks up after the Avengers ended with the failed invasion of Earth by Loki. It shows a bewildered Tony Stark dealing with anxiety and personal issues, which are portrayed incredibly well by Robert Downey Jr.
I have to hand it to Marvel. When they first set out to create the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen, I had my reservations since I’ve seen some pretty awful super hero movies in the past. But starting with the first Iron Man movie that all changed for me. Not only was Iron Man awesome beyond words, it also set the ground work for something so big no one could imagine where they’d take us. With the home video release of Iron Man 3 on Blu-ray, the Marvel universe continues to be brought to life with characters we have grown up with and have seen transform before our very eyes.

Watch Robert Downey Jr. and Adam Pally (TV’s “Happy Endings”) in a fun deleted scene where Gary shows off his Tony Stark tattoo in his van.
Marvel’s Iron Man 3 shows you that good superhero movies will continue to come out with the same cinematic quality and in depth story line we have come to expect in great movies.
Pick up Iron Man 3 on Blu-ray this week, you won’t be disappointed.[amazon_enhanced asin=”B001KZG99A” /][amazon_enhanced asin=”B0043JDUNS” /][amazon_enhanced asin=”B00CL0J99K” /]
