8. Iron Man 3
Despite a few TYF staff members valiantly trying to rally around Shane Black’s take on the character (including this one), Iron Man 3 ended up on the lower scale of or list. Divisive, clearly, the film both won and lost fans due to the darker places it takes Tony Stark’s character as he battles PTSD after the events in New York and the more satirically comedic places it takes the villain, the Mandarin. Distinguished from how often Tony isn’t in his Iron Man suit, the story takes an overall more personal tone and that mixed with Black’s signature style makes Iron Man 3 a perfect ending to the Iron Man trilogy.
