In an interview with EW, “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn once again said he turned down an offer to work on a Superman-centric adaptation.
“In Superman, Batman, Justice League… People already know these characters, which makes them a lot less fun to explore,” he said.
The filmmaker admitted to SFX Magazine (via GamesRadar) that superhero movies get boring.
“Movies based on comics are getting more and more boring for me now. I loved it at first and there are still people trying to do different things so it’s not a 100% correct rule, but a lot of it is boring and repetitive.
He went on to explain how to save adaptations from this saturation.
“The interesting thing is to bring other elements of different genres to renew them. I loved the idea of making ‘The Suicide Squad’ because it’s a war movie with super villains, something like ‘The Doomed Twelve’ and ‘Challenge of the Eagles’. These are different, from the background of the war, the element of assault, the high stakes, the adventure… ”
So, do you agree with him?
Recalling that ‘O Esquadrão Suicida’ is scheduled to premiere on August 6, 2021.
