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.

About the Podcast

Yet Another MCU Podcast
A deep dive into the influences and connections of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Pat Whalen is a lifelong comic book geek.
Mike Field is a filmmaker and storyteller.

So naturally, a bulk of their conversations surround the world of the Marvel movies. Some consider the MCU one of the greatest achievements in modern-day filmmaking and others just think they’re comic book movies.

Each episode they'’ll tackle one film and discuss the differences between the comic book and what’s on-screen. 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. You may not have asked for it, you certainly don’t need it, but you’ll be happy they’re here…we think. This is Yet Another MCU Podcast.

I’m a storyteller.

My very first story was about a detective trying to solve the murder of his best friend. It was also my high school girlfriend’s homework assignment. She got an “A” and then dumped me. I knew even then writers get no respect, but I didn’t care. I fell in love with writing.

In the beginning of every story, there’s nothing. It’s scary. It’s intimidating. It causes the best of us to turn tail and run. Over the years, I’ve learned there’s no greater professional satisfaction than starting that story and seeing it to completion.

I've been creating content for over twenty years, handling all phases of production and including promotion and marketing. I've made web series, short films, feature films, commercials and industrials. I’m a fan of organization, collaboration and other people’s creativity. No one person has all the answers.

And now, I'm a podcast producer and host for Forgotten Cinema, Yet Another MCU Podcast and much more coming from Forgotten Entertainment.
