It’s hard to imagine that one of the greatest filmmakers of our time can be so…petty.
In a recent interview with Indiewire, James Cameron came down pretty hard on the superhero genre, hoping for audience “Avenger fatigue,” and describing superhero stories as “hypogonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process.”
I mean he has a point about superhero fatigue it would be as if we started having robot fatigue…
But this ain’t the first time Cameron has stuck his foot in his mouth about the genre.
Remember when he took a swipe at Wonder Woman?
In an interview with The Guardian, Mr. Cameron called Wonder Woman a “step backward.”
“All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided,” he told The Guardian. “She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing.”
I don’t know what it is, maybe he’s just old, jealous, or really mad no one is talking about his upcoming 4 Avatar sequels…whatever it, just chill out James.
