Quentin Tarantino has been critical of the growing number of Marvel projects in a new interview. According to the director, the producers’ passion for film comics does not have the best effect on what is happening in the industry now.

“Due to the ‘marvelization’ of Hollywood, we have a lot of actors who have become famous playing all these characters. But are they movie stars? Captain America is a star, Thor is a star, ” Tarantino said during the recording of the 2 Bears, 1 Cave podcast. , implying that he considers the real stars of comic book characters, but not the actors who play their roles. Recall that Captain America in the projects of Marvel Studios is played by Chris Evans, Thor – Chris Hemsworth.

“I’m not the first to say this, I think it’s been discussed millions of times,” Tarantino added. Director Martin Scorsese has previously spoken in a similar way. He said that Marvel films are not movies, but “amusement parks”.

Tarantino cited the example of actors who became popular thanks to diverse roles, and not just one character: “Everyone saw Sandra Bullock in Speed ​​and fell in love with her, everyone wants to see her in other films. Now everything is different. We want watch this guy play Wolverine over and over.”

The creator of Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has clarified that he is not a fan of Marvel films, but he worries that such tapes are becoming the only thing that film producers are interested in now. According to Tarantino, he himself loved comics as a child, “collected them like crazy” and, if he were now 20, he would probably rejoice at the premiere of each film. “But only on the condition that in addition to these films something else would come out … I’m almost 60, and yes, I’m not enthusiastic about all this.”

The film industry has already reacted to the interview with Tarantino. Actor Simu Liu, star of the Marvel blockbuster Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, believes that Tarantino and Scorsese are brilliant, but “have no right to point fingers at anyone.” He also stated that if the only ticket to the world of movie stars was to work with these directors, he “would never get the opportunity to star in a film worth more than 400 million dollars.” “No movie studio is perfect, but I’m proud to partner with one that puts in so much effort to show characters from different backgrounds, to create characters that inspire people all over the planet,” The Guardian quotes the actor .
