Roland Emmerich, known for directing the Independence Day movies, White House Down and The Patriot, isn’t a big fan of superhero movies.
Actually, it doesn’t sounds as if Emmerich is a fan of them at all and specifically mentions Marvel.
“When you look at my movies it’s always the regular Joe Schmo that’s the unlikely hero. A lot of Marvel movies, they show people in funny suits running around,” Emmerich said, reports the UK’s Mirror.
Emmerich continues with what sounds like a dig on Superman as well.
“I don’t like people in capes. I find it silly when someone dons a superhero suit and flies. I don’t understand it. I grew up in Germany, that’s probably why,” Emmerich said.
Roland Emmerich’s next movie, Independence Day: Resurgence, gets this released this Friday. It’s probably safe to assume a regular Joe Schmo saves the day in the film.
