    Which is also why so many sequels get made. People tend to flock to familiar things. I think there's also a bandwagon effect. So, a lot of people see [Blank] 2 because they saw the first one, and then a lot of people who didn't see [Blank] 2 see that a lot of other people are going to see it, and just watch because everyone else saw it or is talking about it.

    My guess? Iron Man 3 was a movie people saw in theaters. Man of Steel was a watch-it-at-home movie.
    Hope is not lost today. It is found.

    Yeah, but usually people tend to buy on dvd the movies they saw in theaters.

    That's when they actually like them. IMO.

    Err that would probably be a bad guess. Since the movies that do well in the theater do well on DVD/Blue ray. Well that is of course except for IM3.

    It was good for a modern telling of the story. Is it great? not even close but it is not bad either. Only problem was as I have said time and again is the ending but overall it was well done for what it was aiming for.

    I had several issues with it, but I am most definitely a super Superman fan.

I'd like to know the rationale. If I had to guess, it's that Iron Man was a bigger brand name at the moment, so people went to see it at the theatre regardless, but didn't need a second home viewing. Perhaps this is also a case that IM3 sales were lower than expected.
    My guess is that Iron Man 3, for a long time, was not available on Blu-ray for less than $30, and even now isn't listed below $25 on Amazon that I can find. Man of Steel is currently sitting at $12.50 or so.

    I know that Iron Man's price was too prohibitive for me to consider purchasing it. Still is, though I would love to have a copy.

    I don't hate MOS, it's a great science fiction movie, but a bad superman movie.

    I think I will never understand the "great X flick, but bad Y flick".
    It's a good movie or it's not. In the end, it's really all that matters.

    For me, it means that there is a set of characteristics that are necessary for a "good" movie, but for particular licenses, you have to pull from a subset of those set of characteristics, and if you pull from the bigger set but not the subset, you get a "good" movie that isn't particularly good for that license or characters.

    For many fans, that means you can make a "good" movie in which the hero can kill the villain, but a "good Superman" movie can't have that.

    Yeah, I get the point, but that's really splitting hairs.
    At the end of the day, there's only one question left:
    did you enjoy the movie?
    I don't know, maybe it's because I consider movies as Elseworlds in the end, but everytime hear someone say "ho, it was a good movie, but Superman/Batman/Green Lantern/ Robin Hood didn't behave the way I expect so it's a bad "insert hero's name" movie", part of me always want to tell them to get lost and let the adults do the talking.
