The controversy surrounding Marvel’s films has never cooled down, this time it is Simu Liu’s turn to respond to criticism of Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese.
Despite being the king of the box office and receiving rave reviews over the past decade, the MCU has also faced numerous criticisms from filmmakers and fans for saturating the film market. Two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Quentin Tarantino recently joined the list of directors who have commented negatively on the MCU.
“I didn’t watch them all, I tried, but it’s not a movie. Honestly, the closest thing I can think of when I watch these movies, no matter how well they’re made, the actors try their best in the situations, they It’s still just a kind of “theme park”. It is not a movie used to convey emotions and psychological experiences from person to person.” – Martin Scorsese’s statement in the past.
This has made one of the new stars who have just joined the MCU not very happy. Simu Liu – the star who transforms into the character Shang-Chi in Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings (2021) has responded very strongly on Twitter about criticisms aimed at Marvel: “If the scene When I entered the cinematic world guarded by Tarantino and Scorsese, I probably wouldn’t have the opportunity to star in a movie that grossed over $400 million. They’re genius filmmakers, but don’t poke your nose at me or anyone else.”
He added: “No work is perfect. But I’m proud to work with a company that has worked tirelessly to improve diversity on screen by creating heroes who can support and inspire people from all walks of life. everywhere. I also like Hollywood’s ‘Golden Age’, but it’s all white.”
A few days ago, in a podcast, Quentin Tarantino denounced this as the worst period of Hollywood. The Kill Bill director said, “Part of the state of Marvelization of Hollywood is that all actors become famous just for playing that character. But, in fact, those actors are not real movie stars. Right? Captain America or Thor is the star of the movie. I’m not the first to comment like that. I think this has been said over and over a million times already. That’s it. Characters from hit franchises become stars.”
