They just stretch these superhero movies too much! Round up a trilogy and end with up. The Iron Man movies were pretty solid (at least the 1st) and if the 3rd will be great too, it's gonna be perfect!
Superhero films(especially mainstream, established ones like the Marvel/DC characters) are like James Bond. You can make movies about them forever...so long as they keep earning $. You might as well have asked why they keep making comics runs of characters that have hundreds and hundreds of issues. They're serialized and intended to be ongoing. Do you think they'll ever stop making Spider-Man, Batman or Superman movies? You know damn well they won't.

You know, it occurs to me that Captain America is basically the superhero equivalent of Mary Poppins. Practically perfect in every way and all that stuff.
