  • Good storytelling should be the priority, rather than pushing an agenda, and this is the key to making successful comic book movies

Former Captain America and Marvel star, Chris Evans, thinks comic book movies are hard to make.

The actor recently appeared at the Emerald City Comic Con and addressed the topic of “superhero fatigue,” which is the excuse everybody in Hollywood seems to be using for the failures of flicks such as Madame Web, The Marvels, The Flash, and the MCU’s Phase 4 and beyond approach, which also includes Disney+.

“They’re not easy to make”

“Comic book movies in general, for whatever reason, don’t always get the credit that I think they deserve,” Evans said. “I think they’re these big, giant movies, there’s a lot of cooks in the kitchen. But I think the empirical evidence is in: they’re not easy to make. If it was easier, there’d be a lot more good ones.”

Evans added: “I’m not throwing shade! I’ve been a part of a few that missed. It happens! Making a movie is tough. It’s tough. More cooks in the kitchen doesn’t make it easier. The Russo brothers have really done some great work. I don’t want to highlight specific films in the Marvel catalog, but some of them are phenomenal, just really objectively, independently great movies, and I think they deserve a little more credit.”

Russo brothers get it

The Russo brothers are behind some of the MCU’s best movies including Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Infinity War, and the pair are also responsible for Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Endgame.

Regarding the notion of “superhero fatigue,” fans really aren’t tired of comic book movies, what they are tired of is all the crappy writing that has come with Hollywood trying to send The Message, which always comes at the expense of a good story. To Hollywood, it’s not about coming up and telling a good story, it’s about making sure the fans understand the agenda, which is driven by political correctness, aka is woke.

So since all the woke content that Hollywood has been putting out nearly for the past decade has been a massive failure, particularly with CBMs, Hollywood is trying to spin things as if there is “superhero failure” — but what they are doing is blaming everyone else but themselves, just as that recent Disney exec did.

It’s not the fans that are to blame, it’s these Hollywood clowns who place agenda ahead of story.
