The results are in for the weekend box-office, and Tony Stark has officially delivered a beat-down to Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men. After catching Scott's Robin Hood over the weekend, I can't say I'm surprised that Iron Man 2 has emerged victorious, but it is surprising that a movie with so much going for it on paper has landed with a thud. Everything seemed to be in place, you had two Academy award winners, a great figure from popular myth, and origin-story fever in full swing. But, so far the flick has only earned so-so reviews and unfortunately, even more bad press for Crowe.

Maybe I should have suspected that something was up when reports from the production were gossip items about last minute rewrites, casting musical chairs, and even acts of God working against the production. But I'm an optimist and I was ready and willing to give the film a chance, but I just left that theater feeling kind of cheated and wondering; where did it all go wrong? So even though it may seem a tad harsh to point the finger, no one ever said that life was fair, and after a good long think I've come up with three possible suggestions for the guilty party.

After the jump; whose fault was it?...
