Okay, so you're saying The Shadow was fun, but it should have been dark, therefore it would have been better? Dark = superior? Really?

As for inexperienced directors, the 'director' of Spawn had never made a movie before, but amazingly, has made several since.

Whereas The Shadow is directed by Russell Mulcahy. Anything but inexperienced, he did Razorback, Highlander, The Real McCoy and Blue Ice all before The Shadow.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed $709m, Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $880m. Somehow a 19% increase is the difference between a huge failure and another victory for Marvel Studios.
