Default Re: Rank the Iron Man movies (IM, IM2, and IM3)

I for one enjoyed IM2, I saw it more than once in the theatres. But after a few repeated viewings I am not as fond of it. I realized his alcoholism was almost handled as poorly as the Black Suit in SM3, and the palladium plot has its moments but the resolution seemed kind of rushed and jumbled. I really liked Sam Rockwell and all the action scenes.

I think Iron Man 3 totally dominates 2 though. Surpasses it by leaps and bounds. The way they portrayed his anxiety was much more satisfying than the alcoholism in 2, and the action scenes were some of the best yet in the MCU.
The comparison between Fox's focus on Wolverine and Disney's increasing focus on Iron Man is a valid analogy. Sometimes, less is more.
