    You have to admit, the mandarin is hokey and kinda hard to pull off on film.

    Its easier to do crimson dynamo or whiplash.

    I think in regards to the mandarin, they did the best the could. It wasnt great, but it was ok.

    They set him up as really cool. Then it turned out the real bad guy was a rich guy in a tie. Again. It was a reverse Dark Knight Rises.

    Thats really the majority I read about the last one.
    Just ok = netflix... if nothing else is on.

    Plus those DC movies... meh.

    Back on topic, I have not seen all the Marvel movies, but

    Avengers
    GotG
    Iron Man
    Thor





    Hulk (I was not a fan, and I like Norton.)

    You guys are not counting the fox stuff right?

    It's probably more of testament to it that it was ok given it was never going to live up to its predecessor.

    Avengers 2 is probably going to split people too.

    I believe that as well, because they knocked the first one out the park.

    Regardless, Marvel has not really disappointed me in a film yet that I saw on the theaters (saw hulk on a plane) in terms of entertaining me, so they get my money for avengers 2.

    But I really wanna know what movie is gonna "flop".

    I am not hoping for one to do so, but the ride has to come down at some point. Marvel can not keep making money at this level.

    Question, Does Disney own the movie part of marvel as well?

    I ask because Disney movies don't flop, generally speaking.

    I don't think anyone will be disappointed by Avengers 2, but maybe underwhelmed. It's an entertaining popcorn movie, but whereas the first one felt like the cumulation of the movies before it this one feels like the obligatory sequel.

    The ride keeps going as long as they keep throwing money at half decent writers. How well something like Ant Man does will be interesting as they're much less known characters. Depends on what their expectations for its performance are too.

    Disney owns Marvel Entertainment, which is everything. Marvel Studious is a subsidiary.

    Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait. I worry that what you just heard was "Give me a lot of bacon and eggs." What I said was, "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have." Do you understand?

    A lot of these movies really depend on the villain. Your opinion of DKR really depends on your opinion of Bane.

    Iron Man 3 would be in my top 5 just because of The Mandarin very relevant and a year before the "emerging of ISIS' Jihadi John

    I think the writing in Iron Man 3 is really sharp (Shane Black, duh). Yeah, Stark is always fighting rich guys but 1 and 3 are fun to watch. 2 has its moments but is otherwise an Ormie of a movie.
