It occurs to me that Kenneth Branagh wasn't exactly an obvious choice for a superhero movie either . . .
For a superhero movie in general, no, but for Thor

Agreed. Your wording here is perfect to describe the scenario.
I thought Branagh was spot on casting.
I thought Johnson for Cap:FA was inspired.
Whedon on Avengers made so much sense to me you'd have thought I was in on the decision.
I was indifferent with Leterrier on TIH and think it's really the under appreciated film from Phase One.
Flying Spaghetti Monster
, I don't think anyone would disagree there is a bottom to the well. At some point no one will care about a D-Man movie or Ambush Bug film. Where the bottom is and how far down the rabbit hole success can be farmed is the question. Blade is a C-lister in the books but is considered very "mainstream" by general movie audiences...
Not mention the fact that Men in Black
was originally an incredibly obscure comic book.
