This is a very book-is-better way of thinking and I support it, because The Shining and Jurassic Park books were actually better than the really good movies. You've also got a real healthy and positive attitude for the future. Some people just have a raw hatred for entire franchise because something didn't turn up right once and that's awful. Anyway, Spoiler: I'm also wondering just how much of a Dragon Ball Z they'll pull, but hope that at least the physical murders will stick. Still, I'm just some comic book casul who paid $8.50 for a two and a half hour movie and felt that I got my money's worth. I enjoyed myself even if it was far from perfect.

I would actually say it's a pretty explicit "book is worse" way of thinking in this case. I like the MCU more than the comic book Marvel universe because things feel a lot more like they matter. I don't want to see the MCU go down some of the unfortunate paths that comics inevitably have over time.

There are certain choices that comics feel like they have to inevitably make because of the sheer logistical nightmare of managing decades' worth of stories (reboots and ham-fisted retcons), but I want to see the MCU make the hard choices and not do those things. And they very well may still do that, so fingers crossed. I have high hopes.
