Default Re: Best 3rd movie in a CBM franchise so far?

Making a great third film in a superhero saga (or a series of any kind for that matter) is really hard. The only truly successful threequel in a superhero series to date is The Dark Knight Rises, and even that didn't quite live up to its predecessor in certain ways. All of the others suffer from various ailments and come away with varying degrees of success or failure.

And I did enjoy Iron Man 3 but had some big issues with it. It's better than the average third entry.
