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 Merz6 years ago
