Iron Fail

OK, I think it needs its own thread.

Iron Man 1 was a brilliant movie that I enjoyed re-watching quite a few times. Cannot say the same about parts 2 and 3. And now it looks like there won't be any future IM movies.

How could they fail so miserably...?

thumb up

IM1 is definitely in my top 5 favorite superhero movies of all time. Absolutely love that movie.

Then IM2 was a big let down and IM3 I just hate with a passion.

It's the Transformers thing. The first one was so great, and because IM had quickly become the most popular of the Avengers, they just wanted to cash in the sequels asap.

They were a bit lazy with Thor:TDW as well.


But compare those sequels to Captain America, who wasn't the most popular after CA1 and TA1. So they really made the effort with his sequel, and it really paid off.

100% agreed. IM2 was... what's the word? Average, mediocre? And the less said about the part directed by Black, the better.

And here we don't agree, lol. I wasn't impressed by Transformers 1. Maybe I'm just not a fan. It bored the hell out of me. Haven't seen the sequels.

I genuinely enjoyed both Thors. TDW possibly to a greater extent, even.

Yeah, Russo brothers have done an incredible job.

Marvel wanted Iron Man 2 to be a setup for Avengers, so that's why it was a letdown. Jon Favreau was originally going to use the Mandarin as the villain instead of Whiplash.

Well doesn't matter if you didn't enjoy it. Point being the first one was generally liked, then the sequels all made loads of money despite most people generally hating them.

It's good you enjoyed the second. I just found it to be Meh, but I really enjoyed the first one. Still I'm pretty sure TDW failed to excite people to see more Thor the way Thor 1 and Avengers did. Or the way Cap2 did for Cap.

I agree, the Iron man series as a whole, especially after reading his run, leaves ALOT to be desired. The first Iron man was great, but even as good as it was, the final fight was shit and that always craps on a good movie.

I liked the final fight with Iron Monger.

It was much better than fighting cannon fodder drones and "Crimson Whiplash" at the end of IM2. Or cannon fodder extremis mutates in IM3.

Btw, I'll never understand how can you make a movie partially based on Warren Ellis' work and screw up literally everything.

I was underwhelmed. That was the one big fight in the whole movie and tony got pretty much phucked up until pepper showed up. It should have been a longer fight imo. Didnt need a plot device to beat Stane either coulda just used that anti tank missile from earlier lol

Iron Man 3 wasn't that bad of a movie. For me, all they had to do was get rid of the lame humor (Not talking about Mandarin) and it would have been so much better.

The same with the Thor movies. I'm not that hard of a sell with comedy, but I found myself rolling my eyes. Take away or replace it with BETTER humor and it becomes 10x better in my eyes.

But the lame humor (including the Mandarin) is what made up the whole film. There was nothing else to that film.

Take out the lame humor (including the Mandarin) and it was still a very MEH movie at best.

I didn't mind the whole Mandarin thing, though. The humor I didn't like was John Fareu's parts and Tony's interaction with the kid. All pretty dumb. I'm surprised John did so badly on IM 2, he usually knocks it out of the park. Chef, Elf, Made, etc...

All fantastic, hilarious movies,.

That was the worst. Had to stop the movie during one of those scenes.

Wasn't his fault Imo. Sequel was rushed and was more of an advert for Avengers than it was a film onto it's own.

Still I prefer it to IM3, and think Favreau would have brought back his Mojo if they kept him on for the 3rd.

Supposedly, it was Kevin Fiege who interfered.

Keeping Jon for the third would've certainly done less harm than picking Black, that's for sure.

I feel Black's a better director, though.

Shows not all good directors are suited to doing superhero movies.

That maybe true, but what if it was Marvel's overall direction to fault? Wouldn't be the first time a director has disagreed with them.

With IM3?

Nah. That movie had zero impact on the greater Marvel Universe.

Heck Avengers AOU completely ignored the ending of IM3.


Good Director's with a real passion for the comic book franchise they're working on is what's always needed.
