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."
MCU Rest of Decade prediction:
2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man
2016: Captain America 3, Doctor Strange
2017: Thor 3, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Inhumans
2018: Avengers 3, Black Panther, Incredible Hulk 2
2019: Iron Man 4, Doctor Strange 2, Ms. Marvel
