Re: Favorite villain of the trilogy?
Stane. The only one who had any emotional stakes. Plus he is so charming in that Jeff Bridges way early that his turn, as Joker says, is surprisingly intense and unnerving late in the film.
You know this is kind of crazy. Iron Man must be the only superhero ever to have gone three films without having an amazing or iconic villain. They are all serviceable to varying degrees, with IM2's being barely passable. But the star was always Tony. After him, his suit, his toys and Pepper, the rest is just filler.
