    “That’s Super Depressing”: Chris Hemsworth Takes Absurdly Childish Jab At Filmmakers Like Martin Scorsese And Quentin Tarantino For Their MCU Criticism

    It looks like Chris Hemsworth will never meet his heroes. Most of his friends have found great projects outside the bounds of Marvel-verse. But the Australian actor is holding out hope following the general opinion of Marvel movies by Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. 

    Last seen in ‘Thor: Love And Thunder,’ Chris Hemsworth is convinced he’ll never work again with big-shot directors. There’s been a lot of bad blood between the MCU and the “mainstream cinema,” with Hemsworth catching the short end of the stick. Not to mention, the cold reception to ‘Love And Thunder’ was the final straw.

    Chris Hemsworth has given up hope of working with bigwigs like Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese. Following their comments about not acknowledging Marvel movies as “cinema,” the ‘Thor’ actor told GQ that he believes the two directors won’t ever be interested in working with him. He also told the magazine about his honest feelings about ‘Love And Thunder,’ saying they may have gone overboard with making it silly. 

    Chris Hemsworth told the outlet, “That’s super depressing when I hear that. There goes two of my heroes I won’t work with. I guess they’re not a fan of me. I’m thankful that I have been a part of something that kept people in cinemas. Now, whether or not those films were to the detriment of other films, I don’t know. I don’t love when we start scrutinizing each other when there’s so much fragility in the business and in this space of the arts as it is.”

    Martin Scorsese And Quentin Tarantino’s Comments About Marvel Movies

    The entire discourse started with Martin Scorsese telling Empire magazine that he saw the MCU movies as “theme park rides.” As expected, the filmmakers from the Marvel camp responded to Scorsese’s comments. Many filmmakers like James Gunn respectfully disagreed with his remarks. 

    While Quentin Tarantino doesn’t “hate” the Marvel movies, he’s upset with Hollywood’s obsession with the franchise. As a kid who loved collecting comic books, he considered making a live-action ‘Luke Cage’ film. What ticks him off is the loss of movie star culture in the age of CGI-generated movies. 

    During his appearance on the podcast ‘2 Bears 1 Cave,’ he went into detail about his gripe with MCU, “Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is…you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters. But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first person to say that. I think that’s been said a zillion times…but it’s like, you know, it’s these franchise characters that become a star.”
