Star Wars has Hardware Wars, and now the Marvel Cinematic Universe has Iron Man 5.
Comedians and lifelong friends Greg Stone and Anthony DeVito were recently guests on Chris Gethard’s revived public access show, Chris Gethard Presents. During their appearance, the duo were tasked with writing a movie, Gethard crowdsourced his audience for some of the film’s plot points to be included.
Stone and DeVito had just one week to put everything together and then return to Gethard’s show with a script, characters, props, actors and actresses to film it all. The result is a hilariously low budget hour of Marvel fan fiction as Stone and DeVito give (sometimes conflicting) stage direction, hire actors on the fly, direct, and act in an inspired low budget flick that serves as the 5th movie in the Iron Man franchise. If you find yourself asking where the 4th Iron Man movie went, well they address that. What other billionaire took up the mantle after Tony Stark’s death? What was the new Iron Man’s his fate and how will it relate to this 5th film? You will have to watch and find out.
Comedians Brendan Sagalow, Dan Perlman, Evan Williams, James Mattern, and Julia Solomon help Stone and DeVito pull off their vision that includes a Pawn Stars t-shirt, the fall of Notre Dame, Galactus, the Silver Surfer, children of Seinfeld characters, and wolf versions of Professor X and Magneto. It’s all there, what else could you ask for?
Everything was put up on Youtube for your enjoyment.
