'Wreck' is the wrong word. Different century, very different audience. The arrogant, broken man who baffled Mordo's schemes is no longer enough. And (sadly) for a mainstream audience, these days even the fantastic has to fall within familiar reference points....I wonder how they will wreck this one.
I don't think the next chapter in Marvel is going to be all too light. With Dr. Strange we are beginning Stage 4, and Stage 4 is for lack of a better word, Magic. Even Harry Potter had few light moments in it and those were all mostly towards the beginning. It's hard to do light magic without getting cheesy and while I didn't see the film yet, I am glad that people aren't saying it is cheesy. I'm very excited for this next phase and the trailer shown during Agents of Shield forced me to get to the theater to see it this upcoming weekend. I don't even like Cumberbatch as an actor.just watched it and I'm conflicted. Technically (to me as a layman) the effects and staging are just amazing... that said it seems to miss the 'lightness of touch' that is normal Marvel (that's not to say it's all DC doom 'n' gloom), Nolan's Inception is definitely a reference point!
I think it's one of those films where you admire it but I don't love it (like I did Guardians) - that being said I'm interested in the sequel
