Ultimately, I think Iron Man 2's problems had more to do with lightweight villains. While Whiplash was a mean lookin' mofo, he pretty quickly had his ass handed too him in both fight scenes.
That was my biggest problem with, the wrong villain was used for the sequel. They should have used Mandarin. Magic vs Tech would have been much more interesting to watch, since we already got two suited guys fighting in the first movie.
Hopefully, Mandarin will finally appear in the next movie. I think it's pretty obvious that Iron Man 3 is going to get made.
