Though I think you can jump into Iron Man 3 without much knowledge of the previous films, it’s not bad to fill in the gaps. Redditor spidermanngp‘s ex-girlfriend was planning to see the third installment with him (before the breakup), and he decided to make a recap to fill her in. Besides the fact that he goes through the basics of Iron Man 1 and 2 in under 8 minutes and it’s informative, the video he made to go with it is absolutely hilarious. He uses clips from other franchises, funny cut-outs, word balloons, and more.
Hey, he even manages to make Iron Man 2 look interesting.
Watch the entertaining recap after the break.
