In regards to the movie overload thing, it's no different really than how it's been for years.
2003- Daredevil, X-Men 2, Hulk
2004- Punisher, Spider-Man 2
2005- Elektra, Fantastic Four
2006- X-Men 3
2007- Ghost Rider, Spider-Man 3, Fantastic Four 2
It just happens now that, they're set in the same universe. Which is frankly what I always wanted from those films (and why I wish most of the above would revert back to Marvel too)
Honestly, at this point I kind wish Marvel would just get back all of their stuff. That way we could at least get references to stuff from X-Men and Spider-Man even if they don't use their characters in the movies.
Disagree. If Marvel had all the character rights, you know they would put Wolverine in every single movie and put him on the Avengers team even if it made NO sense.
