Really? They all have a very different feel to me. Even the fringe stories that should bomb (Guardians, Ant Man) have been fantastic and huge box office successes. What don't you like?
I think Matt is comparing the basic things principles across the movies. Lots of action mixed with a little humor and characters that don't take themselves too seriously. It seems to be working pretty well for them so far.
Sorry, I missed this somehow until now... I didn't see Ant Man yet, but I did really like Guardians. When I say they've gotten stale I mostly mean the Avengers and all the individual movies that go with them. Thor, Thor 2, Captain American 1-3, Iron Man 1-3, Avengers 1 and 2... they're all blurring together to me. Especially the last few I've watched (Winter Soldier and Avengers 2). It seems like Hulk and Hawkeye and Black Widow just keep showing up to show up... the stories seem to be getting less exciting...
To me at least. I'm just hoping Disney finds enough ways to differentiate the films from each other - to really let the one-off's be legitimate one-off's. Guardians is a good example of things that still work better, and I don't think it feels as problematic to me mostly because it has nothing to do with those other ones.
Just my 2 cents... Star Wars always left people wanting more, with 2 or 3 years between films, and then 10 or 15 years between trilogies. My fear is that we get a movie a year for the next 10 years and everyone just gets completely sick of it and it gets really hard to keep things as exciting as they are at this point in the game.
