  1. The article, which itself summarizes a full interview, and then further reduces that down to this clickbait headline, would seem to indicate that he’s responding to the question of whether he would direct a superhero movie. He says he wouldn’t, because he finds the stories in those screenplays ‘fucking boring as shit’ and that as someone who’s spent a lot of time on special effects movies, he needs something more than big effects set pieces to interest him.

  2. I personally share this opinion, except for the Dark Knight series, but I can totally see why they are entertaining to millions of people. Just another case of why do we care what people enjoy so much?

  3. Sounds like more and more filmmakers are sounding like angry old men that their art pieces arent making billions at the box office.

    People are no longer willing to spend their hard earned money at the theaters to stroke their egos. If it doesnt explode or not have any basis in reality…they’ll wait til it streams.

  4. He’s entitled to his opinion as a grumpy old man.

    Anyone who I can direct Black Hawk Down, Gladiator and A Good Year gets a pass in my book.

  5. I agree though I literally can’t sit through any marvel or dc movie without falling asleep, I just dont get them. It’s always the same stuff anyway

  6. 10 years ago they were refreshing. Now that they are a dime a dozen its hard to find great ones not done by james gunn, Todd Phillips and james mangold

    It might be my age making it self known but i cant really stay interested For more then a hour in things like shang chi or black widow , especially when they make the characters i actually wanted to see on screen as they were on page into something else entirely (like taskmaster)

  7. They used to not be. But the market has been saturated so much and they all follow such a similar formula that now they all feel the same.

    After I watched Endgame (reluctantly) I basically told myself “ya i think i’m good for life on superhero movies.”

    So I get where he’s coming from. The last superhero movie I truly enjoyed was *Winter Soldier*.
