We’re going to veer a little on the controversial side. You see, whenever you mention superhero movies, you immediately see factions preparing for battle about superhero movies. Sometimes arguments are based on the idea that the source material was completely ignored and that the Hollywood treatment was given to the hero in question.

It’s up to you to put down comic books from time to time and watch a movie based on characters and stories you know and love.

series vs sequel – You may not grow up on leaving clean space for a sequel, but remember that a comic that spans decades has the freedom to have a story over a long period of time. Movies must end or at least be successful enough that they make the public want more.
embody the suspension of disbelief – Sometimes you should just give up the fantasy and watch the movie. Leaving any atrocious mishandling of the characters, go to the theater knowing that everyone there has your hands on it and just kick back for a few hours.

Don’t hate and definitely don’t look down on these people. Since they may be more inclined to watch a movie just for fun, you might be able to put some effort in and ask for some character background.
