Marvel Characters, Not Actors, Are The Stars, Tarantino Says

While on a press tour for his newest e-book Cinema Speculation, director Quentin Tarantino mentioned that whereas he is not a Marvel hater, he is not precisely the corporate’s greatest fan. Speaking on the 2 Bears, 1 Cave podcast, Tarantino decried the “Marvel-ization of Hollywood.”

“Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is… you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters,” Tarantino mentioned (by way of Variety), “But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first person to say that. I think that’s been said a zillion times…but it’s like, you know, it’s these franchise characters that become a star.”

“I’m not even putting them down, frankly, to tell you the truth,” the director mentioned. Tarantino added that he doesn’t “hate” Marvel motion pictures, however as an alternative feels they’re dominating Hollywood. “My only axe to grind against them is they’re the only things that seem to be made… They’re the only things that seem to generate any kind of excitement amongst a fan base or even for the studio making them. That’s what they’re excited about. And so it’s just the fact that they are the entire representation of this era of movies right now. There’s not really much room for anything else. That’s my problem.”

In latest years, influential administrators taking swipes at Marvel has develop into an rising development in headlines. Martin Scorsese made waves when he mentioned Marvel motion pictures are “not cinema.” Earlier this 12 months, Damon Lindeolf (Watchmen, Lost) mentioned that though he loyally watches each Marvel film, he does suppose there are far too lots of them.

Earlier this month, unsurprisingly, Tarantino mentioned he will not make a Marvel or DC film.
