I think his point is along the lines of: "Do we want a "Darker film" because we feel it would be better worth our time and money to watch?"

He's speaking as if he was a moviegoer, maybe a slightly misinformed opinion or it could be coprrect, because I feel if a movie is darker it would appeal to me more, because Darker Movies seem a bit more mature, although there isn't too-too much maturity about a comic book movie, Man of Steel was perfect to me.

Man of Steel had a little bit of everything, it's my proverbial salad bowl with a nice bold ranch on the top.
It did have a darker feel to it than the previous super man films.

I like them dark and edgy because they are usually better movies.

I agree, darker movies usually contain some intelligence to them as well. I love when a movie has me firing up the neurons.

Comic book movies are more suited to dark and edgy thingy, makes them more real and makes me want to go and see them.
