David Cronenberg Is Not Fan Of Superhero Movies...At All!

In a chat with Next Movie, the Cosmopolis director states his outright dislike of any movie focusing on a superhero, calling them "adolescent in their core", and singling out TDKR in particular. Read on for the full story..

David Cronenberg has directed, in my opinion, some of the greatest movies of all time. He is best known for his surreal, body-shock horror movies such as Scanners, The Fly, and Videodrome - and actually has directed a CBM of his own in A History Of Violence. But that didn't involve anyone in tights. Still, with some established directors turning their hands to the superhero flick, it wasn't too far fetched to assume that someone like Cronenberg, who was already familiar with similar genres, may one day want to do the same. Well, don't count on it! Next Movie put the question to him, and he did not mince his words when responding..

"A superhero movie, by definition, you know, it's comic book. It's for kids. It's adolescent in its core. That has always been its appeal, and I think people who are saying, you know, 'Dark Knight Rises' is, you know, supreme cinema art, I don't think they know what the f**k they're talking about."

Although he does admit to liking Christopher Nolan's other work - particularly Memento - he says he finds his Batman movies "boring", and that at the end of the day, despite any technical brilliance, they are "still Batman running around in a stupid cape.".

Ha! I think this is great actually. It's refreshing to hear honest opinions from anyone in Hollywood, even when I disagree with them. Some people don't like CBMs and that's that I guess. I'm sure I don't need to ask you to sound off with your thoughts below!
