Tarantino’s controversial statements towards Marvel continue to be discussed, this time the director takes it out on the actors who participate in the cinecomics, refusing to call them movie stars.
Engaged in the promotion of his new book, Cinema Speculation, Quentin Tarantino does not spare his vitriolic statements towards the world of superheroes on the big screen. This time, specifically, he lashed out at the actors acting in Marvel movies.
“Unfortunately the Marvelization of Hollywood, if you want to call it that, has struck again. There are all these actors who have become famous playing comic book characters, but they are not real movie stars. Captain America is the star, Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first to say this. It’s the characters in these franchises that have become the stars.” Tarantino said on Tom Segura’s podcast.
Quentin Tarantino: ‘My last film will be an original story’
Despite these declarations, and the fact that he would never direct a Marvel film because he doesn’t need to, Quentin Tarantino has nevertheless unveiled the comic he would like to bring to the big screen: Sgt. Fury and the Howling Commandos, a comic collection centered on the former, mythical stories by Nick Fury set at the time of the Second World War. The comic narrates the heroic and almost impossible missions of Nick, Dum Dum and the other Howlers against the Nazis. The Howlers appeared in live action in Marvel Studios’ first Captain America film, released in 2010.
