While promoting The Suicide Squad, James Gunn wasted no time strongly criticizing current superhero movies.
James Gunn is currently promoting his next hit. We are talking about The Suicide Squad, the film that is part of DC and that will not be at all like the tape that David Ayer made. Undoubtedly, we will be facing a very innovative proposal that will have the stamp of James Gunn in all the scenes.
While promoting the film, which will be released on August 6, James Gunn took the opportunity to talk about current superhero movies. In an interview with the Irish Times, the director explained that this genre is in a kind of stagnation. Therefore, he feels that most movies are “boring.”
“We know how western movies and war movies fared. (…) I think you don’t have to be a genius to add two and two and see that there is a cycle for these types of films, and you know that the only hope for the future of superhero films and comics is to do something different. They are really stupid and mostly boring to me right now, ”explained James Gunn.

“I loved them at first. I was very excited when these kinds of movies started being made. Everything revolved around special effects when I saw ‘Superman’ as a child. I still love that movie. Okay, I know, he’s a wired guy with a blue screen with pretty bad visuals, ”explained the director of The Suicide Squad.
“Then when ‘Iron Man’ came out, I was interested. It was possible to make a guy fly and actually look like a guy flying. And being able to do that was a precious thing. But if the movies don’t change, it’s all going to be very, very boring, “concluded James Gunn.
At the moment, James Gunn finds his full attention focused on The Suicide Squad. A movie that promises to be very compelling, fun and bloody. In this film we will meet recognized faces such as Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Sylvester Stallone, among others.
