Re: OFFICIAL: Rate & Review Iron Man 2 continued...
The essential problem of Iron Man 2 is that it's a potboiler. It's just filler between the first Iron Man movie and The Avengers. Very professional, entertaining, but definetly filler. Nothing of any real significance happens, and none of the main characters are any different by the end of the movie.
There is no Marvel/DC rivalry. Most of the great comic creators worked for both; Jack Kirby, Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Walt Simonsen, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, John Byrne, Steve Englehart, Mark Waid...even Stan Lee.
