Iron Man's future on the big screen seems to be in good hands, with slated appearances in at least two more Avengers films. There aren't any more solo films planned, but that probably isn't a bad thing, for now. I'd rather have fewer appearances by the character rather than Iron Man be over saturated with a bored Robert Downey Jr. phoning in the role.
With a Batman/Superman film announced, it seems like DC is finally on the road to a Justice League movie - but will it include founding member Aquaman? He seems like a harder character to introduce within a JLA movie, but would DC/Warner brothers really take a chance on a solo film that is bound to be very expensive to make, given the largely underwater locales? I think the only way it could work is if they got a major star for the lead role and a top director behind the camera. The Favreau/Downey Jr. combo took everyone by surprise with a previously B-list character and we need the same kind of collaboration with Aquaman. It's a tall order, but I think it could be done well, and look unlike any superhero that audiences have seen before.
