Unrealistic but happy

I have a buddy that is very angry when anything deviates from the comics. I try to tell him, the 1st time Spiderman defeats the Sandman, he does so with a vacuum cleaner. You don't want a beat for beat adaptation of the comics.I disagree with you big time, but that's your own personal problem you'll have to deal with. I can't nor do I want to change your mind. I never read the comics, or any newer iterations or adpations of the character, but, I don't care. Not every comic book movie has to bat for 1000% accuracy. The movie matched my expectations and I am looking forward to what comes next.
The Dark Knight is currently my all time favorite individual movie and that Batman is NOT comic book Batman (though any time there is a new writer/artist for Batman, you could argue that is a new continuity as comic book Batman can vary wildly depending on who is handling him ie Frank Miller vs. Carmine Infantino.
But I do think there are things you need to get correct. I read of one continuity where Batman complains of having to be a detective and that isn't something he ever bargained for. I thought that's just wrong.
I thought Shang Chi in the movie was just wrong.
I worry I'll have the same reaction. I'll wait for streaming.snip
I've seen both the Lynch and Sci-Fi TV mini series (buddy gave me on DVD, 4x3 ratio!). And while I loved the Pink Floyd trailer, I'm thinking, OK, this story, a 3rd time, and it is only 1/2 the 1st book.
you write that this is a typical hero's journey but from the book series, that is a head fake. Paul becomes a fallen hero, with his son trying to show the people the problem with following fallible human beings. There is sooo much to this series and I have to wonder are we ever going to get there!?!? At least Sci Fi channel adapted some of the later stories to and made a mini-series, "Children of Dune" with James McAvoy from the Xmen series as Paul's son, Leto. I'll have to watch that ASAP as it has been some 30 years since I read the series.
