On the occasion of promoting Spider-Man: No Way Home, Tom Holland also responded to negative comments about the superhero movie series.
Recently, there have been a lot of controversies about the superhero movie series among the big names of the movie industry. This is also understandable given that at the moment, the superhero movie genre is extremely developing and almost dominating the film market, so this series will definitely receive a lot of negative reviews along with the film industry. opposite reaction. And recently, Spider-Man Tom Holland also had some of his own share on this rather sensitive issue.
According to The Playlist, Tom Holland answered questions related to Superhero movies as follows:
“You can ask [Martin] Scorsese that you want to make a Marvel movie? He wouldn’t have envisioned the movie because he had never directed it [siêu anh hùng] at all.
I’ve been in Marvel movies, just like the movies that are talked about in the Oscar world, there’s only one difference, which is the movie. [Siêu Anh Hùng] more expensive than the other movies. But the way I research the characters, the way the director portrays each part of the story and the characters – it’s all the same, just done on a different scale. So I think superhero movies are really art.
When you make movies, you know they’re good/bad, millions of people will see them. On the contrary, when you do small independent films, even if it’s not great, there’s still no audience, so the level of pressure is different. I mean you can invite actors like Benedict Cumberbatch or Robert Downey Jr. or Scarlett Johansson – actors who appear in Oscar-worthy movies in Super Heroes – they give you all the same good news, just to different degrees.”
It can be seen that instead of understatement, Tom Holland directly went straight to the point and countered the point of view of director Martin Scorsese.
Martin Scorsese has previously criticized Marvel movies and said that those films are not cinema, likening them to theme parks and saying that they do not bring emotional and psychological experiences to others. In the New York Times, he wrote that MCU movies “lack real breakthrough, mystery, or thrills” and are “made up of countless variations on a finite number of themes.”
The director even commented that:
“This might be cinema for the kids who see those movies, but I can’t feel it. I’ve seen one or two movies, that’s enough because they’re so similar, over and over again.”
It can be seen that the director of The Irishman detests the Superhero movie genre, especially Marvel’s. So it is understandable that Tom Holland responded to the director with a somewhat ironic tone.
