The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been experiencing superhero fatigue for a few years now. With every new project that comes out, fans have been complaining about how they are tired of seeing the same old stories and plot elements in every new superhero that comes out, and there are quite a lot. This, along with the sheer amount of new characters that have been or are going to be introduced in the fourth and fifth phases, has resulted in fans growing tired.
