Re: Did you know Joss Whedon almost directed this movie
Would it have been better? Anything is possible but my gut says NO! Whedon did great on Avengers but I still think IM1 edges it out as the better movie. Of course I consider IM1 to be the pinacle of ALL superhero movies. It's just the closest of any superhero film I've seen has come to being perfect. But I don't doubt Whedon could make a great Iron Man movie.
You know, it occurs to me that Captain America is basically the superhero equivalent of Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way and all that stuff.
