I thought MOS was plenty self aware without being obnoxious.
I don't think Avengers was obnoxious. I think some of the Marvel Studios movies are (Thor and Iron Man 3 in particular) but I think Avengers was kept it reigned in at the right times.

I just think it's a little easier to swallow a po-faced Batman given he deals with organized crime, murder, drug trade, poverty etc. Then a po-faced Superman with actors ranting about a "codex" or bellowing B-film level lines like "Unleash the world machine!" I think Superman requires a little more levity to go down, because he, like 99% of Superheroes from BOTH companies, has an inherent silliness to him.
