It's movies not a tv show or a miniseries.

That's one (flawed) way of looking at it. A more logical assumption would be that Iron Patriot simply went off in pursuit of the President's real abductor and left Iron Man to take care of the other personnel.

Because they amuse me so, and because they're a good indication of the tumblrsphere's reaction to this film, here are a few random tumblr posts (under a cut, because there may be spoilers in all this incoherence, and also some swear words):

IRON MAN 3 Pre-screening
Last night I went to the Iron Man 3 Pre Screening event and saw Iron Man 3. It was just…the best. The humour, the armour, the SFX the EVERYTHING. I kid you not, you guys have to stay till after credits, if you’re a sciencebro shipper, stay till the end, you will not be disappointed.

The whole entire movie was filled with angst.

Expect lots of angst, hurt/comfort fanart from me from now on. I’m just holding off from drawing anything now to avoid giving out spoilers.

I'm not quite sure what's the love for the post credit scene to be honest.

I guess it has the same value as the shawarma scene. It's not vitally important, but for some (in this case, sciencebro shippers) it's awesomeness incarnated.

My guess is that the Dark World and Guardians of the Galaxy will start the story arc for Avengers 2, while Winter Soldier and Iron Man 3 are completely self contained. Or it's just Guardians of the Galaxy that's starting the story arc for Avengers 2, while the three sequels are self-contained.

Honestly, that's kind of how Phase One was if you step back from it and look at it as a whole. Thor and the First Avenger were the two films that narratively started the story for Avengers. Both Iron Man films and the Incredible Hulk were completely separate from that.

Realistically I think that starts with Guardians, but to me I just don't think theres any problem in just having Avengers be self contained as well. That is...build up the villain and the plot within the film like every other film. You don't really need to waste time on character arcs for each of the Avengers because they already have their solo films. My point being I personally feel that a film suffers if too much of it relies on a previous film to build up it's storylines, it should be able to do that within itself.

I hope this is the case. I mean I'm a little disappointed that IM3 sounds like it is pretty much standalone, but as long as an arc begins in TDW and continues through GOTG into Avengers 2, I'd be happy with that. The thing that separates the MCU from other franchise is that connective tissue and that's what makes the experience so great, at least for me. Not every movie has to inform the larger universe, but I'd still like it to be there in a few of the films.

I think all of the movies are going to be stand alone, even GotG. GotG will do the most to set up A2, but it will be more natural than what happened in phase 1 where the cosmic cube showed up at the end of the post credits scene for Thor and stuff like that.

Also, Feige and RDJ say that IM3 actually does the most to set up future movies going forward than any of the films so far, we just aren't immediately noticing it.

That's stupid how they put in those scenes after all of the credits. The Thanos one was after the initial credits so it was quicker, but the shawarma scene was after all of the credits. I guess the after credits scene tying into TA2 or the next MCU movie will be after the initial credits if it's in IM3.

Brilliant post.
I've said all along that the MCU shouldn't be viewed as an Avengercentric universe. Everything doesn't tie in to the Avengers, despite what some seem to think or want. MS is following the same format as the comics --- the solo titles are their own thing, and the Avengers is *its* own thing. TA1 is the big "Avengers assemble," of course, but TA2 doesn't need to be that at all. The Avengers franchise needs to focus on the team itself --- how it evolves, where it's going, what it stands for, where it's based, how the team gets along (or doesn't). That's the way Stan Lee intended, and it's worked pretty well so far.

No, but the fact that Gwyn Paltrow said day before yesterday that Marvel is already in talks with RDJ for TA2 and IM4 would be an indicator.
