James Cameron Criticizes Superhero Characters

Over the last decade and a half, Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe have produced some of the highest-grossing films of all time. Yet, it is not an impediment for acclaimed directors to critique the nature of these films, and the shallowness of their content, ultimately disparaging them for their lack of genuine emotion.

It has now come to Cameron, when he was talking with the stars of his upcoming sci-fi epic Avatar: The Way of Water, a sequel to the blockbuster Avatar from 20th Century Studios, he criticized the characters involved in their respective franchises, and the lack of effort put into character development.

In a recent interview with New York Times, he said, “I also want to do the thing that other people aren’t doing. When I look at these big, spectacular films — I’m looking at you, Marvel and DC — it doesn’t matter how old the characters are, they all act like they’re in college.”
