They are angry because they felt mislead which is down to the execution. You admit that Killian needed work, do you not think if his story had been handled properly with the twist actually having some emotional meaning that people would be as annoyed? There's no pay off with the twist, it's there as a trick and not much else. The great irony in all this is that people who are ok with how things turned out calling complainers out as being not open to change yet the entire build up toward the film showed us something completely different to the character in the comics, and yet no one batted an eyelid prior to its release, in fact most people were excited of what they were seeing from what I could tell. So how exactly are more people angry that they didn't get the comic character when frankly everyone going in was more than aware we wouldn't be getting that character?
