Marvel's Cinematic Universe: What Really Has Changed About Superhero Cinema?

We know some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s many ticks (humour, intertwining worlds etc.), has the genre really changed all that much? How do these movies differ from X-Men, Spider-Man in quantity and quality?

  • This would be a great topic to write about seeing as how it's virtually impossible to talk about these movies in a critical manner (at least for me). They're all spectacular and fun and offer a decent Good v. Evil battle, but aside from that, they don't offer a lot in terms of substance. If this is the cinematic equivalent of junk food (or as Spielberg would refer to it, gourmet popcorn) then what keeps us going back? – August Merz 9 years ago
