Re: Rank the Iron Man movies (IM, IM2, and IM3)
My order and why:
1) Iron Man - well executed origin story and a classic now, traditional superhero myth that was translated well on screen, launching point and set the tone for the MCU
2) Iron Man 3 - I enjoyed that Marvel took risks and wants to push the superhero genre beyond the traditional CBM storytelling, dialogue and humor was great, action and final battle were the best among the three films, movie is certainly not without its flaws but I still found it to be a solid net positive
3) Iron Man 2 - as a solo movie this was almost a disaster, other than being a giant collection of easter eggs for Avengers it didn't offer much else for me, still my least favorite MCU movie
Avengers is still the top of my list followed by IM1, then IM3 is a long way down as third favorite.
