Some damage control experts or firm estimated that Avengers damage would cost 160 billion dollars.
And MOS damage could cost 3 trillion dollars!!!
Basically, it comes down to Zach Snyder being a better director, ironicaly. He made the destruction look more realistic. That's why people are angry. He did such a good job that he made people care.
