Not so close when speaking specifically of their favor with the general audience now is it?
Like I said there's not point arguing over this matter. The general audience definitely seems to like Iron Man 2 better. There are indeed many facts to support that theorie all over the internet.
The only thing I was pointing out is that, critically, Superman Returns was in fact (slightly) better received than IM2.
I would have thought it was somehow precise and closed to misinterpretation.
