They're both popcorn movies in my book, just handled in polar opposite ways.
And I mean really, he could be just as bitter towards WB/DC for not taking his proposed Superman trilogy.
The WB has all it's DC rights in one basket plus they're dying for a success just like FOX is. Which is no real threat to him.
Now if Marvel/Disney gets back all of their rights then he'll be out of a job. Thus the conflict of interest.
Plus I've seen his Twitter account where he speaks about his creations (Wanted, Kickass, Kickass 2) daily. And not once has he referred to any of them as merely "fun popcorn flicks".
