Marvel Studios' movies hit a for-all-audiences sweet spot. The "Marvel Cinematic Universe" balances mature audience-friendly danger and the bright colors and humor that keep the action PG-13 enough for younger crowds. They're amplified Saturday morning cartoons—good ol' fashioned end-of-the-world fun. Catering to the masses works in the company's favor: The Avengers franchises have grossed over $7 billion worldwide.
There's no reason to change the formula. But Marvel's smart: Different heroes demand different styles. Enter: Daredevil, the comic book empire's latest television show. Sorry, kiddos. This one ain't for you.
