Phase Two of Marvels series of movies kicked off in a similar way to Phase One – with an Iron Man film and after some pretty impressive trailers and glimpses of The Mandarin and Pepper in the latest armour designed by Tony…..I was fairly hyped……enough to book tickets for a midnight showing.

This is it, the much-hyped, must-have title from Marvel Now and having already enjoyed my fair share of the releases so far – I was keen to see if this could match the hype it’s been adorned with.
