    A mid credit scene. One that is big, but we all knew was coming.

    Last time I checked, the MCU wiki hadn't updated the plot summary. They might be waiting for it to air in the States first. (Comments might be a place to avoid just in case.)

    Since I like all the Marvel Movies, then I guess I'll like this one. :) 

    Considering Whedon knows what he's doing, he really shouldn't.

    If I was in Robert's shoes, I would have done the same thing.

    If he was though, things would have probably been awesome.

    Yeah, but they've updated some of the character articles.

    Beware, here there be spoilers.

    Good parts:
    - Stan Lee cameo
    - Vision
    - Scarlet Witch
    - ANDY SERKIS! :D 

    Bad parts:
    - Jokes made by Ultron felt out of place and took away from the threat his character posed.
    - Hulk/Widow romance felt rushed and out-of-the-blue.
    - Felt like it wanted to be Civil War at times, but couldn't. Didn't even set up Civil War all that well either.
    - Shoddy visual effects. Obvious green screen at some points, the equivalent of the long shot of all the Avengers from the last movie didn't impress me at all.
    - Iron Man continues to be bloody invincible.
    - Ran jokes into the ground, and called on references to jokes in the first movie WAY too much.
    - Didn't care at all about Quicksilver.
    - Bad pacing.
    - Not enough Andy Serkis.
    - No phase 3 cameos. Was hoping for at least Black Panther.
    - Ultron's surviving Iron Man's repulsors, Thor's lightning and Vision's MIND GEM BEAM all used together without all that much damage is bullshit.
    - Makes Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 useless. Seriously, the only movie you need to see is Winter Soldier. It's like Iron Man 3 in particular NEVER HAPPENED!
    - That ending was just stupid. No reason to cut that off.
    - Mid-credits scene was a waste.
    - Inconsistent Hulk is inconsistent.

    Overall, 3/10. And I love the MCU; Winter Soldier, in particular. Hoped this would live up to it. This movie is the Iron Man 2 of Phase 2: only there to set up future films. :/

    It has a mid credit scene, but nothing but a text AFTER the credits.

    Agree. This film wasn't entertaining or fun. It was like a big ad for phase three.

    Question for those who have seen it. Is there actually an explanation for why Tony is Iron Man again?

    None. Iron Man 3 didn't happen.

    Well that sucks...
    Yet that was IM3's big thing. He quit being Iron Man so he could attempt to have a normal life. Him continuing to be Iron Man out of the blue makes no sense, and is a sign of very shoddy writting.

    Agree. Another huge hole in the MCU.

    I'm going to go with logic and reason that Tony started wearing the suits again because he and the Avengers were needed, now that SHIELD's gone and unable to monitor global security. And going from pre-release interviews and trailers, he doesn't really want to be in the suits again, but he has to be. Which is largely the reason he tries to "make a suit of armor around the world" to have lasting world peace and not have to get into the action as he's been forced to again.

    Just reasoning, folks.

    It's more than just reasoning. I'm not saying that Disney should spoon feed us every little detail, but something like this should have been addressed in the movie itself. Even Thor's randome appearance in the first Avengers movie had an explanation. It was a single throwaway sentance, but it was something.

    They're getting lazy.

    Ravenxl7 asked the same question I've been wondering about as well. Given the huge focus that IM3 had specifically on Tony fixing his heart, destroying ALL his suits, and "moving on", it's certainly valid to wonder how & why he decided to suit up all over again. Needless to say, I'm surprised and disappointed to hear that that's something completely skipped over.

    It also highlights exactly how much of a clusterfuck IM3 was. Virtually all of us walked out of there wondering "okay... so now what?" after seeing such a conclusive ending, yet knowing full well there would still be an Avengers 2. It's like that movie tried to wrap his story, yet everyone behind the scenes knew damn well RDJ as Iron Man would be back... so why did they even go that route with IM3? I guess the good news is that, much like both Hulk movies, we can apparently just ignore IM3 altogether and not have it affect anything with the MCU continuity.

    There is a progression but several of the stuff that was left hanging wasn't really addressed.

    That was my impression as well. I don't think Tony quit being Iron Man, he just needed time to think/get back to basics (which is something he realized as he was stuck in that small town) - and we still see some issues from Iron Man 3 being addressed i.e. his fear that there is something out there too big for the Avengers to stand against.
