I guess it's just me then... I'd kill for a superhero version of "This Means War" via Hawkeye, Mockingbird and Ronin, or a superhero version of "Killers" with the Captains Marvel... or even a "The Bounty Hunter" storyline with Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.
And I dare anyone to make a good She-Hulk movie *without* it being a romantic comedy, ha!

That's a really good point. While I would qualify Iron Man as a Romantic Comedy, since it's action and dramatic elements outweigh the comic and romantic elements, people tend to discount any movie with action as not a Rom Com... even if it's a comedy about romance. People also seem to forget that every Rom Com has a setting/background that's not about comedy. Superhero stuff is just another law firm/school/website/vacation/whatever.
And My Super Ex didn't seem to understand why people like superheroes or Rom Coms... ugh.
Edit: Speaking of She-Hulk, I'd love to see a courtroom drama with She-Hulk on one side and Matt Murdock on the other, I'm sure it's happened a few times in comics.
