      "Spider-Man 2 was a Spider-Man movie, but it was foremost the work of Sam Raimi, the beloved Evil Dead director who had the good sense — and more important, the PERMISSION — to lend that movie his own affectionate B-movie stylings. [Many "flops" and years later] Marvel repossessed Spider-Man and Marvelized it into two hit movies. I adored the first one. I cannot, for the life of me, tell you who directed it."

      I can think of one exception but just one (Thor Ragnarok). I am also not a fan of "Marvelization".
