Iron Man 2Welcome to the Moviefone Movie Club, where we pick a movie, see it and then discuss it with all of you. This week: ''Iron Man 2.'

There's little doubt that 'Iron Man 2,' which kicked off the summer movie season on May 7, was (and is) the most anticipated blockbuster of the year -- and indeed, it had the biggest box office debut of any movie so far in 2010.

But there's hype, and then there's living up to the hype. Did 'Iron Man 2' match the lofty expectations set for it by its predecessor, 2008's 'Iron Man'? Did die-hard comic-book fans get more from the movie than everyone else -- or did they enjoy it less?

But there's hype, and then there's living up to the hype. Did 'Iron Man 2' match the lofty expectations set for it by its predecessor, 2008's 'Iron Man'? Did die-hard comic-book fans get more from the movie than everyone else -- or did they enjoy it less?

Movie Club editors Patricia Chui, Erik Davis, Amber James, Eric Larnick and Andy Scott set out to answer those questions and more, discussing the action, the plot(s), Scarlett Johansson vs. Gwyneth Paltrow as female leads, Mickey Rourke vs. Sam Rockwell as the villains, the 'Avenger' Easter eggs embedded throughout the film, and whether there's such a thing as having too many superheroes.
