Why are the characters so flat and one dimensional in the MCU? Tony could have been dealing with alcoholism and still had ptsd from new york that they glossed over in iron man 3. Rogers should have severe ptsd from world war 2 considering it just happened for him. Black Widow was always said to have some kind of troubled history and it was finally shown somewhat in ultron but her character is generally inconsistent among the movies. Hulk and Banner don't really ever get anything beyond some dialogue about 'the other guy' etc. etc.

Because the movies themselves are pretty one-dimensional, and make no bones about being so. They're not trying to be treatises on postwar trauma or the endless struggle between man and beast, they're trying to be superhero movies.

Steve, at least, had an inability to settle down and a fear of what he'd do with his life if the fight was ever actually won. It's a neat conflict for him.

vietnam vets get ptsd from fighting in fucking jungle horrors. modern soldiers get ptsd from the noise of their own explosions, because we've become such pusses
but WW2 vets? shit dude, nothing bothered them.

ww2 left many vets with ptsd that almost never talked about it

because it's hard to do a cool action movie where someone spends all their time being an emotional wreck

If you want a movie about someone in a colorful costume who is an emotional wreck, maybe go watch Super

Thank God for Fox's X-Men movies where characters can actually go through development.

>Purchase new spiderman comic
>starts off nice, Pete kicks some tail, a well-timed joke or two
>some kid goes "look uncle Ben, it's spiderman!"
>the rest of the comic is peter running away, hiding, and viciously crying his eyes out until the To Be Continued (?)
Thank god for this character development. It's what I like to see.

Steve has PTSD but his generation was known for not talking about it and shutting down, I had a Grandpa and Gruncle who were in WWII and both didn't like to talk about it.

But they touch on Steve's PTSD in Winter Soldier, heck Falcon is a guy who works wirh soldiers woth PTSD and he invited Steve to talk to him in one of his meetings. Also in Age of Ultron they bring it back when he's having that vision and when he gets uncomfortable in Clint's farm.

Anon, he said "TRYING" to be superhero movies. Learn reading comprehension.

The Toy Story characters weren't this flat and one dimensional.
