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.
Actually, Taylor was the one that retrofitted a lot of the scenes with humor. He thought they needed them to match the Marvel template. Not a good call, to say the least.
