I get why y'all are bagging on Danny but c'mon, those movies are really really bad.

Not as bad as the DC flicks.
I'm about retirement age and grew up reading the Marvel stuff. Great fun, at the time. Really loved Dr Strange(comix) and was very concerned they would screw that up. Very pleased they didn't. In a stressful, deeeply screwed up world, a bit of fun, mindless escapist stuff can be just the ticket. It is deeply disappointing that that is pretty much all that gets any run time at the locoplex. Studios have so much money invested in this crap that they're scared to death of offending anyone or challenging their audience any more. Think "Taxi Driver" could get made today? Or, more importantly, get wide release? Mel Brooks would get run out of town on a rail.
