I don't think the tonal shift in Avengers and the tonal shift in Man of Steel are comparable. That is to say, I don't think they're the same thing. I think they can be compared, but only to point out and analyze the ways in which they contrast, because they're very different from one another. The tonal shift in Avengers, I feel, grows very organically out of the narrative, and offers a very satisfying emotional release for the audience. The tonal shift in Man of Steel, however, is very sudden and does not built off of what came before and as a result feels very out of place to a lot of people.

The world does not work the way you think it does:
