The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

May 12, 2019

Is Iron Man 2 one of the worst MCU films? Well, before you answer... not so fast! Now that Avengers: Endgame has dropped, this movie and its moments take on a whole new level of meaning! (SPOILERS) The Movie Defenders pour back over Iron Man 2 and examine whether or not this deserves to be at the bottom of the pile, or if this is a solid entry into the MCU. If you didn't like the movie much, listen to this show because there is more here than you likely saw prior to Endgame. But before that, we have a packed show with a tribute to our beloved Chewbacca, the late, great Peter Mayhew, a discussion about all the revelations about Endgame that are out now that the directors and writers are talking, and a review of the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer! We wrap it up with a discussion of the top 5 movie sequels of all time, and then we jump into hardware mode and tackle Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2. So grab a drink, jump into a Formula One race car, and put on some AC/DC... it's time for The Movie Defenders Podcast!
