A light hearted film can have serious moments (Spider-Man 1 & 2 were far from dark, having a lot of corny or funny moments but the deaths of people were still treated seriously showing that a fun world is not prefect and still has issues). Like wise dark films can still have light hearted moments or funny moments to give people a breather from the situation and show that even in such a messed up world it's not all bad (a few horror films like Scream do this).
If they can find a balance between the two where people can take the film serious enough to not just roll their eyes at it and call it stupid but still acknowledge how unreal it is and still have fun despite the death count...
