Starlog Archives: Iron Man (2008)
Leading up to the release of Batman V Superman, I dug into the Starlog archives for stories about the origins of the respective movie series. I’d like to do something similar with Captain America: Civil War because I am much more excited about that movie than I ever was Zach Snyder’s ode to men punching each other in the rain. But unfortunately, Marvel movies only recently. Starlog ceased publication in 2009 just one year after the release of the movie that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s not quite a nostalgia trip on the same level as going back to the 70’s Superman or 80’s Batman, but here’s Starlog’s preview of the first Iron Man movie back before anyone realized that Marvel would come to dominate the box office. The issue also included a history of the character from the comics, so I threw that in too.
