Yeah. It is a superhero movie. And that’s fine. That doesn’t mean it can’t have emotional weight.
Logan is a superhero movie and it has one of the best written emotional arcs of any movie in years. Hence its nomination for best adapted screenplay. This isn’t quite there… and a big reason is because the entire arc isn’t in the screenplay.
But it still does pack a punch. Which is why it rings stronger with people than say the Superman death in BvS or the Quicksilver death in A:AoU.
