Shane Black has a very particular type of humor that only appeals to certain people and he made some creative choices that were always going to be controversial.
Well the funny thing is I liked Shane Black as the director, I liked the movie 1st time I saw it as well, but I find that fondness dwindling each time I watch IM3, which surprises me because other MCU movies have only got better the more I have watched them.
Plus, Favreau did IM2, but we know Marvel meddled a lot with that one, if he didnt get much freedom after IM1, then I cant see Taylor or the Russo's getting much to do their own thing either.
