tv echo December 16, 2022 Share December 16, 2022 Marvel Studios Earns Historic Placement In National Film Registry Collection By Gillian Blum December 14, 2022https://thedirect.com/article/marvel-studios-national-film-registry-collection Quote One of Marvel Studios' earliest films made history as the first MCU film to be selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. * * * Each year, the Library of Congress selects 25 films that are at least 10 years old and considered "'culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" to preserve. .... * * * The National Film Registry released its 2022 selections, including the historic addition of 2008's Iron Man. Iron Man marks the first MCU film to be added to the collection, though it is not the first superhero film — the Robert Downey Jr. movie joins two other comic book movies, 1978's Superman and 2008's The Dark Knight, on the Registry's lauded list. Other films added in 2022 include The Little Mermaid, Hairspray, and When Harry Met Sally. ‘Iron Man,’ ‘Little Mermaid’ and ‘When Harry Met Sally’ Added to National Film Registry By Rebecca Rubin December 14, 2022https://variety.com/2022/film/news/iron-man-little-mermaid-national-film-registry-1235459238/ Quote Turner Classic Movies will host a television special on Dec. 27 at 8 p.m. ET to screen a selection of motion pictures named to the registry this year. * * * Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says he’s delighted that director Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man,” the film that popularized the Marvel Cinematic Universe, made the list. “Iron Man was the very first film Marvel Studios independently produced,” Feige said in a statement. “It was the first film that we had all of the creative control and oversight on and it was really make or break for the studio.” He adds, “All of our favorite movies are the ones that we watch over and over again and that we grow up with. The notion that here we are, almost 15 years after the release of ‘Iron Man,’ and to have it join the Film Registry tells us it has stood the test of time and that it is still meaningful to audiences around the world.” Link to comment
