I vote for Stane too, but Vanko had potential.
That's your opinion. Love how you say "with the exception of Loki" because aside from Ledger's Joker and McKellum's Magneto there hasn't been a performance like that in any comic book movie that comes close.
As a long time Iron Man fan, I'll admit he doesn't have the best rogue gallery, which is why the movies were smart about making the film about Tony Stark. It's one of the few superhero movies where we're as interested in the character out of the suit as we are in the suit.
"Dull and downbeat, this Fantastic Four proves a woefully misguided attempt to translate a classic comic series without the humor, joy, or colorful thrills that made it great." - Rotten Tomatoes critics consensus on Josh Trank's Fantastic Four
