By 2008 superheros were already pretty much on the map in the film industry as the best audience attractions. Iron Man however brought a new feel to the genre in my opinion with surprisingly alot of humor and began what to this day, continues to be a well-organized film series. The most unique part in my opinion, is the fact that the Marvel Universe has a crossover formula into it where other superhero films intermingle with another, one of them obviously being Iron Man. As far as this installment goes however, it has yet to be surpassed by a better film in the series in my opinion. If any, The Avengers is the only other film on par with this one. Regardless, watch them all for your enjoyment. You can see Robert was pretty much born for the role of Iron Man just by this film alone.
