I leave now to go see the next Iron Man and I'm anxiously looking forward to it. I hope to leave it very satisfied, unfortunately in the movie business there is that rule of three. When it's time to for a movie franchise to make it to the third movie, if one of those movies haven't sucked, usually the third one will. It's happened in some movie trilogies such as Indiana Jones with The Temple of Doom and Spiderman with Spiderman 3 but then again, these are my opinions. But the fact is there is such a rule so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this doesn't happen to a franchise that brought Marvel superheroes to the big screen.
Before Marvel hit big with Iron Man, it had it's hits like Spiderman and Blade and misses with such projects as Hulk, Daredevil, The Punisher, and Electra. But when Jon Favreau directed the first movie, Marvel began it's role which eventually lead to the merger with Disney making Marvel the giant in the superhero war between Marvel and DC Comics. As a DC fan, I have to say they have drop the ball but are slowly catching up with the upcoming "Man of Steel" but for now, Marvel is king and Iron Man is responsible for getting the ball rolling. With an all star cast and a fresh director, it's time to go see if Disney's magic can spare Marvel the curse of the "Rule of 3."
