Quentin Tarantino says Marvel actors like Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth aren’t actual movie stars: “Captain America is the star. Thor is the star.”

Quentin Tarantino doesn’t think there are any movie stars in Hollywood anymore, and the main reason for that is the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Part of the Marvelization of Hollywood is that you have all these actors who are famous for playing these characters,” Tarantino said on the “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast (at the 1:09:52 mark) while promoting his new book. Movie speculation.” But they’re not movie stars. Captain America is the star. Thor is the star.

“I mean, I’m not the first person to say that, I think that’s been said over a million times,” he added. “But it’s these franchised characters that become stars.”

The two-time Academy Award winner has said that the main reason this is happening is that Hollywood is currently only interested in making superhero films and apparently nothing else.

“My only gripe is that they are the only things that seem to be made,” he said. And they’re the only things that seem to generate any kind of excitement among the fanbase or even the studio that’s making them. That’s what gets them excited. my problem.”

Tarantino admitted in the chat that he doesn’t hate the MCU, it would be nice if there were more options when going to the movies.

“Look, I used to collect Marvel comics like crazy when I was a kid,” Tarantino said. “There is an aspect that if these films came out when I was in my 20s, I would be completely happy and absolutely in love with them. I mean, they wouldn’t be the only films that would be made. Those would be films among other films. But, you know, I’m almost 60, So yeah. No, I’m not totally excited about it.”
