IM2 was rushed because they were at a point where they needed product, and with Thor 2 Marvel didn't end up finding the right guy to make the movie but pushed it through anyway. Both situations led to half-baked scripts and flawed movies. Clearly Marvel made mistakes. But it's not an issue of hands on/hands off.
That Taylor had disputes over what was and wasn't cut, the comedy and composer, I'd say they were hands on. That is the very definition of hands-on.

With TDW it isn't that they didn't find the right guy to direct. It is that we will never know, because Marvel wouldn't stop touching. The script situation is the biggest red flag you can have. It was the "Marvel" vision, not Taylor's.

Now I am not saying they don't have the right to do that, and in some cases such things help a production. But that isn't hands off.
