There is nothing wrong with introducing new characters or films. The industry already suffers enough from that bs.
its a case of like for marvel iron man used to be pretty unknown to non-comic book fans or general audiences, but now he has become one of the most well known marvel characters, yes maybe partly was the actor that played him but i doubt him alone kept these films going if they were terrible films for 4 sequels
