In a recent interview Dune director with his criticism of superhero-based franchise Marvel Cinematic Universe has started a new controversy among fans on social media. Denis Villeneuve in a interview heavily criticized Marvel Movies saying, "There are too many Marvel movies that are nothing more than a cut and paste of others." He added, “Perhaps these types of movies have turned us into zombies a bit… But big and expensive movies of great value there are many today. I don’t feel capable of being pessimistic at all."
Villeneuve further added, "Just think of the golden age of Hollywood to see that commercial films can make a different artistic proposal and, therefore, political. I have never felt like a loss or an impediment to have a generous budget to do what I wanted to do. Upside down. Who said that a movie on a big budget can’t be artistically relevant at the same time? I am currently thinking of people like Christopher Nolan or Alfonso Cuarón.” The Academy Award-nominated director has added himself to the list of various other filmmakers along the years publicly criticizing the MCU.
Denis Villeneuve has been pretty straight forward when it comes to expressing his thoughts in public. The director did not just criticize the MCU once but on various occasions. Villeneuve in the French Outlet Premiere said, "If we’re talking about Marvel, the thing is, all these films are made from the same mold. Some filmmakers can add a little color to it, but they’re all cast in the same factory. It doesn’t take anything away from the movies, but they are formatted.”
Dune is a upcoming science fiction film based on 1965's novel by the name Frank Herbert.The film is directed by Denis Villeneuve with screenplay by Eric Roth, Jon Spaihts and Villeneuve.
