I thought the first Iron Man was the best film that Marvel has made, but the second was all right at best. It was a major step down, IMO. I too am sad that Norton isn't Hulk, especially because Mark Ruffalo irks me. But, hey, I actually liked the first Hulk film with Eric Bana most of all, so what do I know?
As a whole, though, Captain America just seems like it will be lacking in something. My buddy commented during the trailer that it looked like Inglorious ******** with a super hero, and I thought that was poignant.
Still think both FF movies were awful, hated almost everything about the X-Men movies (don't have much hope for the one that's coming up, either), Spiderman 3 was terrible, and even the first two were decent but far from great. Daredevil had it's moments but was mostly terrible. Punisher was crap.
In the grand scheme of things, I guess Thor is actually one of the best movies Marvel has made, but I still thought it was a tad disappointing.
