** ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'' had so much indisputable change that even the creators admitted that they had made a mistake by changing so much. However, some people who actually liked the movie[[note]]believe it or not, in some regions were the original Toho Godzilla never aired and/or was never popular or well known, the 98 Godzilla and its animated series are the most popular version[[/note]] and its monster disliked the creature getting depicted as the classic Godzilla with his usual powers and fighting other monsters in ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries'' and then officially being renamed to "Zilla" and presented as a useless weakling in ''Final Wars'' as part of a grand TakeThat against the '98 film. As well, the movie's niche fandom didn't take too kindly to later media going back to Godzilla's traditional look and powers, leading to a sort of FandomRivalry.

* On the subject of ''Film/AntMan'', there are fans outraged over the fact the movie is about Scott Lang, the [[LegacyCharacter second]] Ant-Man, and not Hank Pym, the original. Pym ''does'' appear in the movie, just with a massive AgeLift.

* Disney revised the Walt Disney Pictures VanityPlate in 2011 so that it no longer includes Walt's first name nor the word "Pictures". Fans see this as an insult to WaltDisney, while others are simply cool with it. The company tried to justify the change by saying this version would look easier to read on mobile digital copies. However, the preceding version doesn't look ''that'' hard to read when shrunken to [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Disney_iPhone_logo_4447.png iPhone dimensions]].

* A number of fans (including author Creator/GeorgeRRMartin) complained about founding members ComicBook/AntMan and TheWasp being left out of the ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avengers]]'' live-action movie in favor of ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} and Comicbook/BlackWidow, who are portrayed as founders in the film despite not joining the team until well after it was already established in the original comic books. Other complaints ranged from Hawkeye not wearing purple to Captain America not having wings on his helmet. Captain America ''did'' have wings on his helmet; the only thing is these wings are painted on, not jutting out.

* If you want to see a fanbase metaphorically explode, just bring up any part of the live-action ''Franchise/{{Transformers|FilmSeries}}'' films that's different from the G1 show on a forum that's full of G1 fans. For starters, many fans were upset that Optimus Prime's truck mode was not a cab-over truck, he had flames painted on his cab because [[AuthorAppeal the director thought they looked cool]](Specifically, they'd screen-tested a solid red paint scheme, and the director determined that it looked boring), and his magically appearing/disappearing trailer from G1 was nowhere to be seen. Believe it or not, there were even fans who complained about Megatron's alt-mode being one that was actually usable without having to depend on one of his subordinates to pull the trigger.

* Creator/RogerEbert made a [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19881030/PEOPLE/10010305 case for why Black & White films should not be colorized says the same thing]]. He has a point, especially the part where he says that choosing the right colors is basically WildMassGuessing. OrsonWelles allegedly exclaimed, "Tell Ted Turner to keep his crayons away from [[Film/CitizenKane my movie]]!"

** The removal of the Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox VanityPlate and fanfare from [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo Disney]]-distributed digital copies of the sequels and prequels upset fans who thought this made the opening feel less epic, and that the music that replaced Fox's fanfare (an excerpt of ''Empire Strikes Back'' end credits music, clumsily edited to match the runtime of Lucasfilm's "Logo Shining II" Vanity Plate) doesn't transition as smoothly into the ''Star Wars'' theme. It also creates inconsistency with Fox retaining their logo and fanfare on ''A New Hope'' digital copies. Oddly, when Disney acquired distribution rights to the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse movies originally released through Creator/{{Paramount}}, three years before they started distributing the ''Star Wars'' sequels and prequels, they didn't remove Paramount's logo.[[note]]While most of the Marvel/Paramount movies didn't have any audio accompanying the Paramount logo, if Disney removed it from ''Film/IronMan2'', they probably would have also cut out part of the opening recap, of Tony revealing himself as Iron Man.[[/note]]
