I wouldn't be with someone so controlling.

I think people are underestimating Vin Diesel's current star power. If you're going to pay for Vin Diesel it's for a major role. Someone whose been the lead of so many major blockbusters doesn't come cheap. Which is why I think Vision and some of the other characters are a little far fetched, unless he's just lending some sort of voice talent.
I really like this question because it gives me a big list of good superman stories to read.
I think maybe you're underestimating 12 year olds, as people often do. There's no 12 year old who hasn't seen a bullet to the head in some media or another. You can say that's not okay, and I might even agree with you, however there's no ignoring the fact that this is relatively standard for entertainment. And I feel like trying to say that 12 year olds need protecting from this is symptomatic of a misunderstanding of 12 year olds. Sort of like how PG-13 movies can't have boobs in them, because that would obviously be traumatizing to a 13 year old boy.
I'm one of those people who doesn't think he fits with the current Marvel universe. Not because of his power level, that seems irrelevant to me, but because of the tone. Daredevil should be dark, and the MCU is anything but that. You could argue that Mark Waid's recent run of Daredevil is a good example of how they could fit him in, but Daredevils most classic stories simply don't fit that mood. Also I worry that he doesn't mesh well with their big plans, just look at how little attention Daredevil gets in the comic book universe compared to other comic book characters. Why would the movie universe be any different?
I hope whoever has Daredevil can deliver a film with the maturity, gravitas, and tone that it deserves, and I worry that Disney is not the company to do that. I wonder if we'll even get a proper movie for him or if he will be relegated to supporting character status like Hawkeye and Black Widow. Kind of hard to be disappointed by this though considering it seemed inevitable. Who knows, maybe they'll prove me wrong, but I doubt it.
Actually I had an idea for how Daredevil and Punisher could go in the MCU. Set them both in the late 70's to early 80's. Make it a period piece. This also allows Frank to still be a Vietnam vet and would really allow for a far different take on the universe with all these characters existing in different time periods that fit them best.
That seems like a pretty good way to separate the characters while keeping it in the same universe, but I don't really see them doing that. So far all of their movies have been focused on building up to The Avengers, and I don't think they've shown any interest in creating superhero films that don't serve that purpose. It is a cool idea though!
