It's business. You rarely are going to have purely the right artistic intentions. That doesn't necessarily mean it will reflect on the movie.
They had successfully done the work to build it up towards The Avengers though. They just had to find the right director. But the vision was already in place. The hard yards had already been accomplished. Joss Whedon still had his work cut out for him but compare that to how much work WB would have to do for a JL film in 2015.
