As the entertainment industry exponentially expands, so does its constant coverage — blogs, podcasts, YouTube shows, and magazines to cover every episode, casting announcement, trailer, and movie release that happens during the course of the week.

Add in all of those “New On Netflix This Week” articles out there and the influx of information for the average pop culture nerd can become overwhelming.

But what if someone fixed that? What if someone compiled all of the must-see trailers, all of the trendiest rumors, all of the pending release dates, all of the most-fuego latest gear into one easy-to-consume article?

What if the hero we deserve and the hero we need is actually just a weekly entertainment newsletter?

Iron Man

Official Synopsis: “A billionaire industrialist and genius inventor, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), is conducting weapons tests overseas, but terrorists kidnap him to force him to build a devastating weapon. Instead, he builds an armored suit and upends his captors. Returning to America, Stark refines the suit and uses it to combat crime and terrorism.”

Our Review: Released just months before The Dark KnightIron Man — similarly to the iconic Batman tale — played a part in reshaping the future of Hollywood.

In the 11 years since the release of Iron Man, the entertainment industry has seen a massive shift towards “universe building” and that’s all off the back of Iron Man‘s success. Without the sweeping critical and commercial success of Iron Man, it’s very likely that the MCU (and the various other cinematic franchises) we all know and love today does not exist.

Pitch perfect in terms of tone, pacing, and style, Iron Man took the character of Tony Stark — who was generally a B-lister in terms of Marvel heroes, especially when compared to the likes of Spider-Man and the X-Men — and made him an A-lister.

Featuring a career-defining performance from Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man not only gave birth to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it likely shaped the generation of film making that followed.
