    As Timothée Chalamet is busy with the promotions of his upcoming film ‘Dune: Part Two‘, he recently spilled the tea on his take on superhero movies and how they played an important role in his decision to become an actor. In a chat with the New York Times, the actor revealed the movie that fueled his desire to act – Christopher Nolan’s iconic ‘The Dark Knight’.

    Chalamet was talking about sage advice from Hollywood legend Leonardo DiCaprio, who warned him to steer clear of superhero flicks just as much as hard drugs. “Well, Leonardo DiCaprio said to me, ‘No superhero movies, no hard drugs.’ Which I thought was very good,” Chalamet said.

    I follow them both! But the movie that made me want to act is a superhero movie, The Dark Knight. If the script was great, if the director was great, I’d have to consider it,” he added.

    Interestingly, Chalamet’s director for ‘Dune: Part Two, Denis Villeneuve is a known crirtique of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Villeneuve previously threw shade at Marvel films, describing them as “a cut and paste of others” and pointed out the lack of originality in their formulaic nature.

    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,” Villeneuve also had said during an interview with the French publication Premiere.

    Meanwhile, Timothée Chalamet recently charmed his audiences as Willy Wonka in the prequel ‘Wonka‘. He is now back as Paul Atreides in ‘Dune: Part Two’ following Denis Villeneuve’s 2021 prequel of the film.

    The sequel faced delays but is generating excitement and praise. Even Christopher Nolan likened the ‘Dune’ franchise to ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, his favorite Star Wars film, during a screening of ‘Tenet.

    Dune: Part Two’ will premiere on March 1, 2024, with fans eagerly anticipating the release.
