Why? Iron Man 2 was actually well received despite what fans think and did only slightly less than the first domestically. Besides, nobody is going into Iron Man 3 thinking about Iron Man 2, people are going into it thinking about The Avengers. Iron Man 2 has very little effect on Iron Man 3 if at all in my opinion. The Avengers changed everything. Phase 2 is going to be very different than Phase 1.

Natasha Romanoff - "Are you boys really that naive? S.H.I.E.L.D. monitors potential threats."

Bruce Banner - "Captain America is on threat watch?"

Natasha Romanoff - "We all are."
