It’s Good, Except It Sucks: Iron Man

Iron Man (2008) - hear Tim Worthington and Phil Catterall talking about it in It's Good, Except It Sucks.

It’s Good, Except It Sucks is a movie by movie – and television series by television series – hurtle through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hosted by Tim Worthington with a series of superpowered guests.

This time it’s the film that started it all – Iron Man – and joining Tim to talk about Tony Stark’s jet-propelled escape from Taliban-controlled territory is Phil Catterall, co-host of the Don’t Let’s Chart podcast. What will they find to say about Robert Downey Junior’s career renaissance, Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘business ventures’ and the difficult question of who actually played The Big Lebowski in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what does any of this have to do with The Absorbing Man in a bin? Get listening and find out!
