The online hatred of Iron Man 2 isn't shared by most of the general audience. Everyone knows that it wasn't as good as the first movie, but it was nowhere near the utter bomb some claim that it was.

These movies were franchise killers and required immediate reboots. Iron Man 2 directly led into a pretty decent hit in Thor. I doubt most people give that movie a chance without Iron Man 2. There is also a reason that Avengers was largely sold on Iron Man/Tony Stark/RDJ.
Agreed 100%
