For the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark/Iron Man was the closest thing to a central character

Through stages 1-3, Robert Downey Jr. appeared in a total of 10 movies, including Iron Man, the climactic film of stage 3, and Avengers: Endgame 

It may be that the lack of a "fundamental person" like Tony Stark has made stage 4 seem aimless

However, now that the initial three phases of the MCU are behind us 

it is now feasible to assess every movie Downey Jr. appeared in during the first 11 years of the MCU, and rank them from worst to best.

Iron Man 2 is strange. It's both an essential element of the by and large MCU storyline and a hugely frustrating, uninspiring film

In this overstuffed film, Tony Stark faces off against many new adversaries, 

manages the media attention he has gained since discovering he is Iron Man, and joins Nick Fury's Avengers Initiative, still in its infancy.

With strong thoughts, Jon Favreau getting back to coordinate after the effective first film 

and an enormous cast brimming with skilled entertainers, Iron Man 2 ought to be such a great deal better

However, it's a chaotic, messy film that could have tough individual scenes, yet overall, it neglects to feel intelligent. 

It is a significant film for figuring out the beginning of the Avengers, yet it's generally a MCU depressed spot.

As a matter of fact, the reasons The Incredible Hulk isn't the most exceedingly terrible film Stark shows up in are minor.

Basically, it's somewhat boring and forgettable, diverged from Iron Man 2, which was somewhat forgettable yet additionally truly disheartening,
