'Iron Man' Honest Trailer: "B-List Superhero" Played by "a Half-Forgotten Actor"
The movie that launched a cinematic universe finally is getting its own honest trailer.
"From the company that went bankrupt in the '90s and sold off the rights to its most popular characters comes a film based off the equivalent of leftover scrap metal," the epic-voiced narrator says of Iron Man.
The trailer goes on to demonstrate the ways Marvel repeated the tricks of Iron Man in its future films — including taking a "B-list superhero," adding an "unknown or half-forgotten actor" and "[setting] up an Avengers movie."
The trailer comes just in time for Comic-Con, which will offer a Screen Junkies panel featuring the team behind Honest Trailers this Friday from 8:30 p.m.-10 p.m. in room 5AB.
