Iron Man 2 (Jon Favreau) -2010

Unique among super heroes, Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.) has lost his secret identity.  After you testify in front of a Congressional Committee, that secret is hard to keep.  All would seem to be well for this Marvelous world as Iron Man had resolved the conflict in the Middle East and seemingly ensured world peace in the first episode.  However, there is still one Russian physicist who holds a grudge for some reason.  He is played by that washed-up Wrester-guy, Mickey Rourke.  Soon there are iron suits everywhere and an epic battle ensues.  Fortunately, Iron Man has been able to upgrade his power to 2.0.  An added attraction is an ad hoc committee of the Avengers led by Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow).  It is possible that the Avengers will take over this series since the robot vs. robot scenario has its limitations.  Stayed tuned for the teaser after the credits because Stan Lee and company are planning to hammer out a big sequel.
