Re: Best 3rd movie in a CBM franchise so far?
Iron Man 3 and The Dark Knight Rises are the only good 3rd movies, period. I'm going to have to watch them back to back to decide which I like better.
I thought Iron Man 3 was a more entertaining film, though I felt The Dark Knight Rises was a better trilogy closer. IM3 felt like just another installment with a tacked on "So, I got surgery, and I'm not Iron Man anymore." scene in the last 5 minutes to give it a feeling of being "wrapped up."
Dream MCU phase 3:
2016: Thor: Ragnarok, Doctor Strange
2017: Captain America: Secret Empire, Black Panther
2018: The Incredible Hulk: Rise of the Leader, Guardians of the Galaxy: War of Kings
2019: The Inhumans, Avengers: Thanos Imperative
