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.
Well put. We should be looking for great films here. Not just stuff that makes enough money for sequels. As much as I love Thor and Cap, there are things you know could make them more then what they are.
