I'm not sure I buyinto that criticism. Yes, he cannot use his facial expressions. Which is forcing him to rely on movement, tilt of the head, tension in the shoulders, posture, etc. Plus, voice acting on a sparse set of dialog. He's acting the hell out of a very limited tool kit. Which is sometimes where magic can happen. Art needs limitations to force it to grow.
As someone who loves the Marvel films one of things that annoys me is how often they run around without their masks on and how often they take them off to say a few lines, put them on to fly around or fight, then whip them off again for their close ups.
Everyone learned from Sam Raimi's mistake - even Sam himself.
