TDK is on another level that none of the Marvel films have reached and probably never will. The Russos are great filmmakers, but they're nowhere near Nolan. CW is one of their strongest movies, but personally it's a bit of a drag for me. In a perfect world, AOU and CW should have been combined with Ultron being the movie that broke The Avengers. It doesn't help the ending is ruined by a joke. Marvel's success is what also can hold them back at times from achieving something truly amazing. Marvel is like the whiz kid who you know is a lot smarter than he puts into his work. Instead of getting 100's, he gets mostly 88%'s with the occasional grade in the 90's but never makes that 100. Marvel is very filmmaker friendly, they get inspired talent, and they trust in their source material, and is run by a man who is passionate and knowledgeable. This all equals to a consistent output. But the problem with some of these is that they don't get filmmakers on a Nolan level (Doctor Strange 2 has the potential to be the best MCU film for Raimi alone, he is the best director they ever got) or a Fincher or Villenueve or a Mendes, filmmakers really at the top of their craft because they're too singular for Marvel's cinematic universe which in and of itself can be restrictive. There's trade offs to Marvel's success. I don't know or think they'd be here if it wasn't for their formula, but I can't help but feel if they were more individual and focused less on the long game, they would have had more interesting movies for better or for worse. I might rather take those than most of the MCU films that while still good and none are disasters, can be very same-ish and disposable. Yet they have made history, something that's for the books as much as any great filmmaker. It's less of a film and more of an endeavor as the MCU. How you value that your mileage may vary.
