Or maybe here's a better metaphor: It juggles about 20 different character arcs and storylines, and it even juggles them effectively. But like watching a skilled juggler, I came away from it entertained and impressed but not moved.
And maybe that shallowness is okay. It's definitely spurred me to go look for MCU fic, and it might actually spur me to go write some more. There are emotional arcs to be fleshed out and empty spaces to be colored in. That's always been fandom's job in the past. Maybe it's okay that it continues like that into the future.
