James Gunn Responds To Superhero Films Critcism – AMC Movie News

Jack Black made a humorous jab against the surplus of superhero films at the Oscars and Dan Gilroy told Independent Spirit Awards attendees that they have survived against a “tsunami of superhero films”. Director James Gunn had a lot to say on the matter, stating that, “What bothers me slightly is that many people assume because you make big films that you put less love, care, and thought into them then people do who make independent films or who make what are considered more serious Hollywood films. I find there are plenty of people everywhere making movies for a buck or to feed their own vanity. And then there are people who do what they do because they love story-telling, they love cinema, and they want to add back to the world some of the same magic they’ve taken from the works of others. If you think people who make superhero movies are dumb, come out and say we’re dumb. But if you, as an independent filmmaker or a “serious” filmmaker, think you put more love into your characters than the Russo Brothers do Captain America, or Joss Whedon does the Hulk, or I do a talking raccoon, you are simply mistaken.”
