Marvel have enjoyed a long-running and mutually beneficial relationship with the Pentagon, but there was a falling out during production of The Avengers (2012). On this month’s subscriber-only podcast I examine two of the MCU films that immediately followed this argument – Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier – and highlight scenes that are critical of the military and in particular of their entertainment liaison offices. From secret Nazis to Tony Stark’s home address, this is an exploration of how Marvel studios got their revenge on the Pentagon and their Hollywood operations.
