One of the things that I have been thinking about as I've seen the details about the upcoming movie Iron Man 3 is where will Iron Man go after this. Something that I have noticed within popular culture is that the end of trilogy tends to be the grand finale (although there are a few exceptions like with Twilight, Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc.). This has been true for Christopher Nolan's Batman films, Sam Raimi's Spiderman films, the Hunger Games series, Lord of the Rings, and the Mass Effect series among others. Well Iron Man is hitting his third movie already and it is clear that the Mandarin is will be Iron Man's biggest threat so far, and from the trailers the film does look like the epic grand finale that film viewers usually get. But wait there is still Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to go through, and I just have to wonder how are they going to top the Mandarin for a fourth film if they decide to do one. The Mandarin is the only villain of Iron Man who is a threat to him on all levels physically, emotionally, and mentally. Do you really think they will be able to top Iron Man 3?
