You know, some of my favorite films, and characters are superheros. You have Spider-man, Wolverine, Carnage, Venom, Raven, The Joker(well, not a hero, but whatever), and of course Batman. In fact, I could go all day on how much I love those characters and many others.
Well, one thing I’ve heard people insult the genre is that those Superhero films are “For kids” or “30 year old virgins”(coughbullshitcough).
Dolph Lundgren, who played He-Man in “Masters of the Universe” and “Universal Soldier: Regeneration”, says that those films are for “Little Kids”.
Thanks to Comic Book Movies.com:
“There’s such an outpouring of superhero movies, that I’m not really interested so much in — guys flying from building to building, in funny looking suits. I think it’s more for little kids, and that’s obviously a very CG-driven film, where you can take anybody off the streets and make them a superhero, and that’s what the common man likes, because they can dream about being a superhero.”
CLEARLY Lundgren hasn’t seen “Watchmen” or Nolan’s Batman films. Because if he has, then he would realize those aren’t for kids, lol. I would agree that films like “Fantastic Four” and some others are for kids, but not all. Hell, one of the complaints I heard when “The Dark Knight” was released was that the film was too dark to take your kids too. And any sane person wouldn’t take their kid to see “Watchmen”.
I do agree with him that CG- driven films aren’t that appealing when it comes to films that don’t rely on CG. I hate it when a film depends on CG, and has no substance.
But that’s just his opinion and I’m not gonna waste any time trying to change it.
What are your thoughts?
