“I don’t love them,” Tarantino said. “No, I don’t know. I don’t hate They. But I don’t love them. I mean, you see, I used to collect Marvel comics like crazy when I was a kid. There’s one aspect that I’d be super happy if these movies came out in my twenties And totally in love with them. [But] they won’t be the only movies in the making, they’ll be the ones among the others. I almost So I don’t seem too excited about them.”

“The only thing I have to fix is, They’re the only things that look like they’ve been manufactured,” Tarantino said. “And they seem to be the only things that generate any kind of excitement in the fanbase or even in the studios that make them … so it’s just the fact that they’re all about this era of cinema right now. There really isn’t much room for anything else. That’s my question. This is a rep Sexual issues.”

“Part of the Marvelization of Hollywood is that you have all these actors who are famous for playing these characters,” he added. “But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Thor is the star. I’m not the first to say that. I think it’s been said a million times, but it’s these franchise characters who are the stars.” .”

“Back to , if an actor is in a movie as good as the Marvel movies, then he is An absolute star,” he continued. “It means people like him or her, they like them and want to see their work.” Sandra Bullock at Speed and everyone thought she was awesome in it. Everyone fell in love with her..they had a crush on Sandra Boo Rock (Sandra Bullock) was excited and wanted to see her in something else. That’s not the case now. We’d like to see that guy [go on to] a Wolverine or something.”

I’m in awe of their filmmaking genius. They’re phenomenal directors. But they can’t point their nose at me or anyone. No movie studio is perfect and never will be Perfect. But I’m proud to be part of an ongoing effort to improve diversity on screen with a hero who created heroes to empower and inspire people in all communities around the world. I also love ”’Golden Age””. …but it’s dead white.”

Deadpool Creator Robert Liefeld retweeted a story about Tarantino’s comments and Mocking It’s (apparently) the “Hottest Hot Shot”.
