Yeah, but there's a *much* bigger difference between a movie going from *one* superhero to *six,* as opposed to *six* superheroes going down to *one.* That's too big an assumption that people who went to Avengers to see Hulk or Cap or Thor or even Widow or Hawkeye --- or better yet the team dynamic altogether --- are going to be equally (or more) invested now in just one of those heroes.
