They’ll explore the growth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its inception to present day and beyond. And have a little fun along the way.

    The History of Marvel Comics

    The History of Marvel Comics

    Bonus Phase. Episode 1.
    Pat and Mike take a break from the MCU to bring you the first of many bonus episodes. First up: The History of Marvel Comics.
    They go back in time when Martin Goodman launched Timely Comics, as they dive into the history of Marvel Comics. Joe Simon and Jack Kirby weren't too far behind as they came to Timely Comics and created Captain America. We'll also learn about a little unknown member of Marvel Comics...Stan Lee.
    They go through the beginning of it all in the late 1930s/early 1940s to the 1950s when Timely Comics were temporarily cancelled and ultimately the 1960s when Marvel officially is born. But don't despair...this isn't a deep dive. That would probably take four hours and let's be honest, no one wants to hear Pat and Mike talking for four hours.

    Iron Man 2

    Iron Man 2

    Phase 1, Episode 3. Cue the AC/DC, as Tony Stark returns as Iron Man in the third movie in Phase One - Iron Man 2. Robert Downey Jr, as Tony Stark, returns along with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jon Favreau. Tony battles his own personal demons, government interference, world-building MCU plotlines from Marvel executives and a man who just wants his bird.
    Added to the mix is Mickey Rourke as, the villain and bird lover, Whiplash, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha, we're-not-supposed-to-know-she's-Black-Widow, Rushman. Don Cheadle takes over the role of James "Rhodey" Rhodes. Agent Coulson appears with Clark Gregg taking on the character that will span to more movies and beyond. We see a credited Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and, of course, we get to meet one of Pat and Mike's favorite MCU characters - Justin Hammer played with great results by Sam Rockwell.
    The Justin Hammer love is palpable, but Pat and Mike also get into some of pressing issues with this sequel to widely successful, Iron Man. They examine a movie and a franchise that is trying to tell a story and set up countless more. But regardless, the MCU train is picking up speed and a drunken fight between Iron Man and Iron Patriot can't stop it.

    The Incredible Hulk

    The Incredible Hulk

    Phase 1, Episode 2. The Incredible hulk starring Eric Bana! No...wait. Starring Mark Ruffalo. Nope. Not right. Starring Edward Norton! Phew! We figured it out. That's right, the movie that is often overlooked in the 20+ movies and growing in the MCU, but really isn't as bad as lackluster as you may think. With a supporting cast of Liv Tyler, William Hurt, Tim Roth and Ty Burrell. (Yes, he's in this movie)
    Pat Whalen and Mike Field return to connect the pieces from the last Hulk movie to this one and beyond, as Pat fondly remembers one of his favorite action scenes in the MCU - The college campus battle. Mike learns more about Gray Hulk and the color series in the comic world. But both hosts wonder...where'd Ty Burrell's character run off to in the middle of the movie.

So excited!

I’m so excited for this podcast to come out. I love Marvel but I’ve never dove into the comics myself. Can’t wait to get a deeper dive on the history of the movies I love!
