Re: Best 3rd movie in a CBM franchise so far?
Iron Man 3. No question. It's the first threequel that left me completely satisfied, so unless it falls steeply with repeat viewings, it's easily my top choice.
Below that are Spider-Man 3 and TDKR (in that order too, sorry Anno). I feel both of these are distinctly weaker than their predecssors but do enough right to close the story with dignity.
