* CriticalDissonance: Rotten Tomatoes scores designate this as one of the least well-received movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, third only to ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' and ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. It is also tied with the first ''Film/{{Thor}}'' film for the second worst score on Metacritic (with ''Thor: The Dark World'' taking first place there). Despite this, it became one of the highest-grossing movies in the MCU's first phase, trailing only its predecessor and ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. A lot of this likely has to do with the built-in good will that the first film had, building anticipation for this one.

* {{Sequelitis}}: Usually considered the weakest or one of the weakest films in the MarvelCinematicUniverse thus far. That said, general consensus seems to be that the second movie is still an entertaining film, if not exactly as fresh as the first one. It ''may'' help if you think of it as the second in a trilogy.

** As of ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Winter Solder]]'', [[spoiler: Stern's point is somewhat disproven due to the fact he's a HYDRA agent and he was most likely trying to get Tony to hand the armour over to help TakeOverTheWorld.]]

** The race in Monaco features 1970s to 1980s Main/FormulaOne car designs. Some of the cars seen are cars from the 1976 season; most clearly seen is the Penske PC4 and the Ferrari 312T2. The film Film/{{Rush 2013}} is based on the 1976 season, and have a cast of ''two'' MCU actors; with Film/{{Thor}} himself (Creator/ChrisHemsworth) playing James Hunt, while Baron Zemo from Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar (Daniel Brühl) playing Niki Lauda. As a bonus, Brühl is using that exact Ferrari model type in Rush.

** Pandering also seems to be parodied when Coulson discovers an incomplete CaptainAmerica shield. Tony asks for it excitedly... and uses it to prop up his machine.

* HilariousInHindsight: TheStinger where [[spoiler:Thor's hammer is found]]. Viewers may assume that it's government presence that circling the area. [[spoiler:As ''{{Film/Thor}}'' reveals, it's just a bunch of macho dudes trying to pull out the hammer]].
** PhilCoulson with a Captain America shield became a lot funnier after ''The Avengers'' revealed [[TheKnightsWhoSaySquee how much of a Cap fanboy he is]].
** Howard Stark is an {{expy}} of Creator/WaltDisney himself. (guess who owns Marvel now?).

** Fans are split as to whether they preferred Howard's or Cheadle's take on James Rhodes. Mostly applies to this film, as Cheadle's performance in ''Film/IronMan3'' was much more well-received. His appearance in ''Film/AvengersAgeofUltron'' has practically solidified him as fan favorite.

** The brusque, collected Natasha Romanoff is easily the most understated major character in the either film when it comes to personality tics. Some fans liked this, finding her [[FemmeFatale icy and enigmatic]] while others found her [[DullSurprise bland and lacking in personality]]. This is difficult to gauge considering Natasha spends the majority of her time undercover so she doesn't have much time to display her true personality.
