Kevin Feige Takes Shots At DC Characters: Offers Advice But After Iron Man 3 Is That A Good Thing?
Zack Snyder has been throwing a few super punches at Marvel Studios as of late, and now Kevin Feige responds with a smashing jab of his own.
After watching Iron Man 3, it kinda seems odd to hear his response:
I don’t know. I’m sure they have smart people over there who have a plan and know what they’re doing. Man of Steel looks like it’s going to be awesome and obviously Dark Knight is awesome. I don’t know. It’s what I say all the time and have said over the years, which is, have confidence in the characters, believe in the source material, don’t be afraid to stay true to all of the elements of the characters no matter how seemingly silly or crazy they are. I don’t know, I think the Marvel characters have a bit of a leg up for all the reasons that Marvel fans are aware of in terms of the emotional complexity of the characters and the flawed nature of the characters. Those are obviously the elements we want to accentuate amongst all the action.
Should we ask the Mandarin for his thoughts, Kevin?
As a refresher, here is what Man of Steel director Zack Snyder previously just said about the DC characters as well as Marvel's:
It's Superman. If you get that right, that's the question you'll be asking everyone else. That should be the question you are asking Iron Man and Thor. How is it you can feel you can be making a superhero movie in a world where Superman and Batman exist?
The Avengers, all those movies are all the same thing.
