Practically every comic book fan out there usually complains about the opposite, and the trend seems to detach more and more frequently from the comic canons whenever needed, something they were more reticent to do when they weren't producing themselves.
Box Office results also disagree.
I don't know what or where you got that notion from, storyline wise there are no prereqs whatsoever to enjoy the movies (I haven't read a marvel comic in years, and never read IM at all and had no issues), and attendance wise they are doing stellarly well across a fairly wide variety of audience segments.
It's currently in the top 10 for every single applicable category (totals not counted since it's not EOL yet).
2nd place for fastest to 150M after a 3rd place for fastest to 100 is also, usually, a good sign of staying power and of a movie that will keep making money.
