Oh yes, because those are the only 2 possible options.

You either get a no-talent hack like Ratner or a prima donna who's more interested in making "their version" of the character as opposed to just making "the character". Personally, I'll go with talented craftsmen type filmmakers who understand that they are only temporary custodians of an IP well before an artistic 'auteur'. The first thing these egomaniacs should do is approach these IP's like a doctor treating a patient. Rule #1 should be: DO NO HARM.
