If a director doesn't want his vision impeded he has that right to step away. WB let Hack Snyder and Nolan do them. Why can't Marvel?
Joss Whedon didn't do AOS. His brother did.
I got over the Norton thing. I take it as both sides had a beef. Norton may come off too controlling given he re-wrote the script several times. Marvel may just be dumb for not wanting to deal with such a great actor bringing those possible extra issues again for Ruffalo.
Marvel will get a pass for me as long as they keep churning out the good movies. They're not flawless but right now they're the best out. Marvel definitely lets directors do their own thing. See Cap2, IM1, etc. but letting directors do them doesn't guarantee the best movie. Please don't cite WB as an example of anything
MOS is a struggle story wise and Nolan has enough rep to get carte blanche despite the TDK trilogy not being as great as ppl claim it is.
Like I said, end of the day these are Marvel's characters not the directors.
