I too love comic book movies, and still buy comics when I've got extra cash (the average price these days is 3 bucks an issue, pretty pricey). They are writing the script for x-men 2 as we speak, and all of the original cast is returning, as well as Brian Singer (director). Should be pretty cool. And I'm pretty sure that the spiderman crew is all signed on for 3 films. The rights for a spawn sequel just got transfered to another production company, and Todd McFarlane is hard at work on the new movie - I think he is executive producing it, and has described it as more of a crime story (like Seven) with a lot less emphasis on special effects and more on the story and characters themselves. Your theory about sequels getting worse as they go perfectly describe the Batman flicks - I loved the first, the second was pretty good (Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman... Hello Kitty!!!), the third was crap and after I saw the last one at the $1.50 movies I felt I had wasted my money. But there is hope, the next batman flick is an adaption of Frank Miller's Batman: Year One, and is being directed by the guy who did Pi and Requiem for a Dream. Personally I think all 3 of the Indy movies kick serious ass, and cant wait for the 4th (rumored to go into production after Lucas finishes episode 3). Did you like Blade? There is a sequel to that coming out soon... But now that you got me thinking about it, I cant think of any sequels that are better than the originals (except for maybe the Back to the Future trilogy...but the 3rd one was kinda cheezy.) The exception has to be the original star wars...Empire Strikes Back is 10 times better than A New Hope. Some other exceptions are the Godfather movies, and Romancing the Stone/Jewel of the Nile...I guess Kevin Smith movies don't really count as sequels, though they all have the same characters running through them (clerks, chasing amy, mallrats, dogma, and Jay & silent bob strike back). Were the Eastwood flicks (fistfull of dollars, few dollars more) sequels? Its been so long since I've seen them that I can't remember...
