Thankfully, [[http://twitchfilm.com/2012/05/donnie-yen-returning-for-ip-man-3d.html a third movie, originally to be released in 3D, is in development]], starring Creator/DonnieYen one last time as Ip Man and serving as a proper conclusion to the trilogy. It was originally due for a 2013 release but eventually released in end-December 2015. Creator/MikeTyson will co-star, and the filmmakers announced their intention to use a [[FakeShemp CGI recreation of Bruce Lee]] as a character in the film, although a [[http://www.flickeringmyth.com/2015/04/bruce-lee-estate-suing-ip-man-3-producers-to-prevent-cgi-recreation.html lawsuit]] filed against the studio by the Lee estate soon after the announcement later put the Kibosh on that.

** Ip versus Frank in the third film is also this. Any one of Frank's punches would have KOd Ip if he could hit a vital area, and he even sent Ip staggering backwards with one of his straight punches. He's also played by Creator/MikeTyson, who's a lot stockier and more menacing than Twister could ever be.

* OhCrap: The expression on the tenth karateka's face after Ip has swiftly and brutally beaten down the other nine and begins to [[SlowWalk walk slowly]] towards him.

* ActorAllusion: Frank from the third movie fights Ip Man with boxing rules and pretty much fights only with his fists. Given that he's played by Mike Tyson, this is not unexpected.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: The cop who pulls out a revolver in the first movie points it directly in Ip's face. Thankfully, Ip disarms him before something goes terribly wrong. Interestingly, Ip blocks the hammer and trigger, then pops out the cylinder of the revolver, showing that he has some basic knowledge of firearms.

* DavidVersusGoliath: IpMan versus the Twister in the second film is this very straight. TheHero may have got his {{Badass}} cred down pat earlier, but the Twister is not only physically larger, he had destroyed the OldMaster who fought Ip to a draw [[spoiler: and gleefully beat him to death in cold blood]], so there is a definite underdog vibe.

* {{Badass}}: The eponymous character. Creator/BruceLee's master, mind you. There's also Frank from the third movie, who was the only character to ever manage a draw against the main character thanks to a self-imposed time limit. He actually seemed to gain the upper hand at some points of their fight, and any one of his punches was enough to blow Ip Man away.

boredom. Averted in the second film, where Master Hung manages to fight Ip to a draw and [[spoiler: Ip defeats the Twister, but not before he gets knocked down a few times.]]]] Also averted in the third film, where the goal in fighting Frank isn't even to try and win, but rather just to hold out long enough.
