eh, how are the X-Men films full of any more goofy-ness than the Marvel films? What about those robot arm things in the Iron-Man movies, which are played for laughs like the 'Scutters' in Red Dwarf?!
Thor's Crocodile Dundee-isms were also a mite goofy. Smashing the mug in the coffee shop, a bit daft, but put there for goofy laughs.
How is it not? Look at the natural way the drama is handled, what superhero movie series is more grounded in a natural style than the Singer movies? the Nolan BM films are just as naturally played.
edit: Maybe you are just talking about XMFC here, but you seem to be referencing something from X2 as well. But to say that XMFC is anymore 'goofy' or less serious than the MCU is just as perplexing to me.
