What does that tell you about the other villains? Whiplash wasn't a threat and was very one dimensional. Mandarin/Killian was such a mess of a character, IMO, that it ruined it for me (especially ruined Mandarin, but we've all been there). Justin Hammer and Raza were just pawns, no threat, whatever.

If this is based on performance in the role, it would HAVE to go to Bridges as Stane. Pearce did a great job, but Bridges' performance in IM was special.
