I would rather have a film that embraces the true essence of the character and its real genre (i.e. Batman is crime, Spidey is teen/young adult melodrama, X-Men is social allegory, etc.) than one that assumes because it is based on a comic book it is all about bright colors and extravagant costumes.
Don't get me wrong. Avengers worked very well for what it was. But I guarantee you that Whedon will not make that same movie again.
