When do all these movies start to feel like just another episode in the same series. They say big screen quality came to television, but I also think it works both ways. Episodic motifs are dominating movies. Directors become irrelevant when everyone is vying for the same Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Jon Favreau tone mix to every instalment. I think that's why the Nolan Batman movies were such a stand out. It was such a dramatic shift from previous movies. Palette, tone, dialog, music, filming techniques, story everything. Like Michael Mann took over the DC universe. This may end up being DC's strength in the end, they have such a varied tone with Gunn and Peacemaker on one end and the new Batman on the other.
