Re: Am I the only one....
Yeah. If Iron Man fans had any criticism of the film it was more along the lines of them setting up Rhodey as War Machine too damn soon. I know that was my biggest criticism of the film and how it took away from Whiplash's screen time.
2015 will not only see the MCU beat the HP franchise for the #1 WW spot but it will also see Marvel Studios pass Pixar in terms of WW grosses($8.585 billion). Marvel Studios/MCU avg. annual profit: $621m(there ain't none higher. HP was the closest runner up with $541m when it was active).
