Re: Where does Iron Man 2 stand among other superhero sequels?
Honestly, Iron Man 2 stands right at the top of all sequels.
Let the title fall where it may but IM2, SM2, TDK and X2 are all instant classics.
In my book, Iron Man 2 outclasses TDK. While very good, TDK is a one note film. It's a damn good note but one note none-the-less. IM2 hits many notes and hits them all masterfully. This gives it the BIG edge. Smart, funny, thrilling, superb CG action with great performances... IM2 delivers it all.
