    Tarantino has been vocal about the Marvel and DC superhero films lately. In the past, filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and James Cameron have also slammed these films.

    In an interview with Tom Segura for his podcast, 2 Bears 1 Cave, the 60-year-old filmmaker said, “I don’t love them.” “No, I don’t. I don’t hate them. But I don’t love them.” He added earlier “they wouldn’t be the only movies being made, they would be those movies amongst other movies. I’m almost 60 so I’m not quite as excited about them.”

    My only axe to grind is they’re the only things that seem to be made,” he added. “And they’re the only things that seem to generate any kind of excitement amongst a fan base or even for the studio making themSo it’s just the fact that they are the entire representation of this era of movies right now. There’s not really much room for anything else. That’s my problem. It’s a problem of representation.”

    Tarantino then said that today the Captain America character is a star and not Chris Evans. “Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters,” he added. “But they’re not movie stars. Right?

    Simu Liu, who starred as the lead in Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’, called out Tarantino for his views on the superhero films. He took to Twitter to express his views.

    If the only gatekeepers to movie stardom came from Tarantino and Scorsese, I would never have had the opportunity to lead a $400 million plus movie“, Liu tweeted.

    He continues, “I am in awe of their filmmaking genius. They are transcendent auteurs. But they don’t get to point their nose at me or anyone. No movie studio is or ever will be perfect.”

    “But I’m proud to work with one that has made sustained efforts to improve diversity onscreen by creating heroes that empower and inspire people of all communities everywhere. I loved the ‘”‘Golden Age’”‘ too.. but it was white as hell.”
