Movies / What superhero movies get wrong / Chillin' with the villain

Superheroes are only ever as good or as compelling as their villains. But movies tend to forget that. One of the reasons that Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight is generally considered at or near the top of the superhero genre is the performance that Heath Ledger gave as the Joker. His insanity and violence made for an existential threat to Batman, the people who he cares about, the principles he believes in, and the city he has sworn to protect. You cannot think of that film without thinking of the Joker. Now quick, who was the villain of the Iron Man I, II, or III? How about Ant-Man? Or even Guardians of the Galaxy? This problem is so pervasive that at one point, Spider-Man 3 pretty much gave up on having compelling villains by throwing a bunch of them at Emo-Peter Parker so that the audience would have something to watch after they'd eaten their popcorn.
