Iron Man 2? 2? Really? That one?
What did Seven Samurai change?
Yea, Iron Man 2 basically opened the door for the modern superhero franchise juggernauts. Is it a good film? No. Is it influential? I think so.
Seven Samurai felt like it set the standard for blockbusters like Star Wars and the idea of the team movie. Sure, there were team movies before it, but I think it took it to the next level.
