Re: Where does Iron Man 2 stand among other superhero sequels?
It seems to be following in the vain of the Blade series, where the First film was insanely good and the sequels just couldn't compete. Which doesn't make them bad movies, just not as good as the their predecessor.
IM2 seemed too concerned with setting up the Avengers spinoff then actually building its own stories with key characters like Rhodey/WM.
Gives you the feeling that Incredible Hulk 2 or even Thor will just simply be platforms to build on the Avengers film.
Every man has a dark side to him. The brighter the picture... the DARKER the negative.
