Re: Favorite villain of the trilogy?
Tough choice for me, so I won't vote for now. It's either Stane or Killian.
Once it was revealed that Stane was THE villain of the first Iron Man movie, he was menacing, smarmy, and pretty subtle ... Until the final battle. The final battle of the first movie was good, but I felt it paled in comparison to the rest of the film, and I felt when Bridges was in full-on "comic book villain mode," he fell kind of flat. He wasn't terrible, don't get me wrong (especially because Bridges' performance for the rest of the movie is so great), but I was definitely more intimidated by Stane than I was of Iron Monger.
Killian kind of had the opposite effect for me. He was pretty good for most of the movie, until the "twist" happened. After that point, the payoff for Killian's character was fantastic, in my opinion. He character ended really strong, and the third act of Iron Man 3 was much better than the first film's.
