Gunn refers in this interview to how the genre of superheroes in the cinema is in a kind of stagnation, what makes him find these kinds of movies “mostly boring”. Gunn says the following: “We know how western movies and war movies fared. (…) I think you don’t have to be a genius to add two and two and see that there is a cycle for these types of movies, and you know that the only hope for the future of superhero movies and comics is to do something different. They’re really stupid and mostly boring to me right now. “.

After these forceful statements, the director added the following: “I loved them at first. I was very excited when they started making these kinds of movies. It was all about special effects when I saw ‘Superman‘ as a child. I still love that movie. Okay, I know, he’s a wired guy with a blue screen with some pretty bad visuals. “. Gunn continues this interview with the following words: “Then when ‘Iron Man‘it was released, it interested me. It was possible to make a guy fly and actually look like a guy flying. And being able to do that was a precious thing. But If the movies don’t change, it’s all going to be very, very boring.
