Marvel films aren't the end of the cinema, but they're becoming increasingly stale

The general notion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2022 does not feel overwhelming compared to everything else coming out on the big screen. However, it is unlikely that the MCU has had a decrease in quality over its previous few releases.

The MCU hasn''t tripped up in the past, but there''s no one else in the world who hates Thor 2: The Dark World. (That''s only because it has Tom Hiddleston in it.) However, if you look at the last few films that have been formally named Phase 4, which is all now available, things have been poor to middling quality when it comes to previous phases.

I can attest to Black Widow being a huge tonal mess alongside Scarlett Johansson, who has always been passed as Natasha Romanov. While Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a tonal mess with a less good cast. This is unlikely to the point where I have missed most of the films already released.
