Iron Man 3 and Iron Man Extremis: A LitFlix

Iron Man 3 PreludeThis is my first LitFlix to do, as I am tackling the comic movies this year. Check out my original post about that here. This is our first summer blockbuster, and our first comic movie for the year. This is Iron Man 3.

My LitFlix is getting caught up in a current controversy! Continue reading
