  1. I wasn’t excited about Iron Man 3 (especially since Iron Man 2 was a waste and The Avengers is an overrated mess), but once I learned that Shane Black was co-writing and directing… my pants grew tight.

    • I am not really interested in most superhero films, but the one series I have always enjoyed is Iron Man. I feel that Robert Downy Jr. is Tony Stark, he is perfect for the role. While Iron Man 2 and The Avengers were disappointing, I have somewhat high hopes for Iron Man 3. The “Extremis” story line is by far the best in the series.
