Marvel seems to have everything going for them: a top-of-the-line production design and a solid cast of heroes, access to Disney’s bottomless pockets, etc. Why is it, then, that I haven’t really liked any of their films since “Guardians of the Galaxy?” Perhaps it’s just because I’m getting older, or because after “The Avengers” was established, it doesn’t...
