Wolverine seems to be the only Movie that got the balance right this year. It was character focused, but not void of humor. And the humor never went so far, that the Movie lost any dramatic weight.
We've been over this many times already on here. What you or I consider "balance" is extremely subjective.
Regardless Marvel's intentions CLEARLY are to have people walk in the theater, laugh and have some fun. That's their brand. It's obviously working. It just doesn't sit well with people who require more emotional weight to their films. That's a personal preference.
