I personally feel that peoples complaints about SR are much more widespread and valid than those who adamantly hate IM2, which are a relatively small handful of loud internet fanboys.
He wrote: "It's not like IM2 was on the level of Superman Returns, a film which was actually rather poorly received when it came out."

I was just putting things into perspective by showing that critically Superman Returns was neither poorly received nor less well received than Iron Man 2.

Now I won't argue that the public seems to like IM2 better (and that may have something to do with the fact that it's simply a more entertaining movie) but that box-office argument between films that were released 4 years apart on a market that totally changed simply doesn't make sense.

On a personnal level, even though I enjoyed the movie for what it is, I must admit that I understand most of the criticism directed towards IM2 (the absence of strong/meaningfull character arcs, the uninspired action sequences, the laziness in the direction of the cast, among other things).

My Top 10 CBMs
1: The Dark Knight - 2: Captain America Civil War - 3: The Avengers - 4: Batman Mask Of The Phantasm - 5: Captain America The Winter Soldier - 6: Black Panther 7: Kick-Ass - 8: Batman Begins - 9: Iron Man - 10: V For Vendetta
