SHANG-CHI Star Simu Liu Fires Back At Quentin Tarantino's Recent Marvel Criticism

Quentin Tarantino doubled-down on his Marvel movie criticism in a recent interview, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu has now fired back in a series of Tweets...

Quentin Tarantino has been sharing some pretty negative views on superhero movies (Marvel projects, in particular) during a recent round of interviews to promote his new book, and the iconic filmmaker's latest comments have not sat too well with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu.

Tarantino said that while he doesn't hate Marvel movies, he has "an axe to grind" against what he perceives to be the "Marvel-ization of Hollywood." He then went on to state that Marvel actors were "not movie stars," suggesting that the character has become the real draw for audiences.

Liu responded by referring to the likes of Tarantino and Martin Scorsese - who has also taken a few well-documented shots in the past - as "gatekeepers."

"If the only gatekeepers to movie stardom came from Tarantino and [Martin] Scorsese, I would never have had the opportunity to lead a $400 million plus movie," the actor Tweeted. "I am in awe of their filmmaking genius. They are transcendent auteurs. But they don't get to point their nose at me or anyone."

"No movie studio is or ever will be perfect. But I'm proud to work with one that has made sustained efforts to improve diversity onscreen by creating heroes that empower and inspire people of all communities everywhere," Liu continued. "I loved the 'Golden Age' too... but it was white as hell."

While some agree with Liu's rebuttal, others feel he is blowing Tarantino's comments way out of proportion, and feel his insinuations about the "Golden Age" may be misplaced in this instance.
