Marvel actors aren’t movie stars

friends Actress Jennifer Aniston made headlines earlier this month when she declared, “There are no more movie stars.”

It’s an observation that director Quentin Tarantino would agree with, as his recent podcast discussion proves 2 bears, 1 cave.

Tarantino stated: “Part of the Marvel-isation of Hollywood is … you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters”.

“But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first person to say that. I think that’s been said a million times…but it’s like, you know, these franchise characters that became a star.

Tarantino further stressed in the interview that he doesn’t “hate” Marvel movies, but rather that they are the only product Hollywood cares about making these days.

Tarantino himself has declared that he will never be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Earlier this month, the director stated that he wouldn’t be directing a Marvel movie because “you have to be a employed employee to do this stuff. I’m not an employee. I’m not looking for work.”

Unsurprisingly, his statements have garnered opposition from some of the actors involved in the MCU, including Shang-Chi and the Ten Rings Star Simo Liu.

Liu said he stood by Marvel’s decision to show a diverse cast and choose new faces to lead its franchises.

“I am proud to be working with someone who has made a continuous effort to improve diversity on screen by creating heroes who empower and inspire people of all communities everywhere,” Liu said.
