My biggest concern is that Marvel is settling for mediocrity. Thor and Captain America were serviceable films, and I'm willing to accept that for a first go at a character. But I've yet to read an interview from Marvel et al acknowledging this and intending to step up their game. They really dropped the ball in IM2 -- they had such a great cast to work with but the writing was predictable and unimaginative.

I worry that they're settling for questionable scripts because they've created a system much like that of their comics: got to have a story to turn in before the deadline, got to make sure it's fitting into the latest big event, don't forget the editorial mandates.
