I don't find MOS to be the bleak, soulless action film some make it out to be, but it isn't a warm/lighthearted film either. It's kind of in the middle, with warm character moments but a dark atmosphere.

The sequel has to go lighter, though I don't think this movie is devoid of fun or charm.

I don't want them to overcorrect and resort to CAMP (mocking the genre/characters), but I do want some more witty lines and humorous situations.

And yes, Trevor is a great example of what camp is. Avengers teeters towards the borderline through its increasingly lighthearted tone, though in the end, it's all a matter of opinion.
