A good track, but he has a habit of explaining who's on screen. He also mispronounces Scarlett Johansson's name wrong after all those months of working with her.

He explains that he didn't just want this movie to be about robots fighting and the rivalry between Tony and Justin Hammer is similar to Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck.

No, he doesn't mention that Mickey Rourke hated this film or Don Cheadle replaced Terrance Howard due to the latter being difficult to work with.

Despite the flak that this movie gets in the MCU, I found this commentary to be pretty strong, all things considered.

He addresses some of the continuity errors or "fudging the science" in order to make a scene work, product placement, describes that he wanted the film to be reminiscent of the 1970s Roger Moore James Bond movies in a more fun/fantasy/tongue-in-cheek manner.

I feel like the commentary could've been stronger had he been joined by Theroux or even Feige, but overall it was pretty good.

FUN FACTS:

-Elon Musk allowed the production to film at one of his facilities (the Hammer drone factory) in exchange for a cameo in the film.

-The character of Ivan Vanko is covered in tattoos. One of which was on his neck and said "RIP Loki", the name of Mickey Rourke's dog, which had to be digitally removed after they filmed because Kevin Feige didn't want audiences to see it and feel it was some reference or Easter Egg to the upcoming "Thor" movie.

-Genndy Tartovsky (Samurai Jack, Dexter's Lab, Clone Wars) helped choreograph and storyboard the "blood n' oil" drone fight in the last act.
