Liu, who turned the primary Asian lead actor of a movie within the Marvel Cinematic Universe final yr, slammed Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese on Tuesday and requested them to not level their nostril at anybody following their criticism of the superhero films.
Tarantino, who previously said he’d never be a “hired hand” and make a superhero movie, not too long ago criticized the “Marvel-ization” of Hollywood and mentioned actors within the movies weren’t film stars however quite “franchise characters that change into a star” throughout an episode of the “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast.
Liu wrote in a tweet that he would have by no means had the chance to be the lead actor of “Shang-Chi,” an Academy Award-nominated film that scored a 91% fresh rating amongst critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
“No film studio is or ever shall be excellent. However I’m proud to work with one which has made sustained efforts to enhance range onscreen by creating heroes that empower and encourage folks of all communities in all places,” Liu wrote.
“I cherished the ‘Golden Age’ too.. but it surely was white as hell.”
Liu isn’t the one Marvel star who has weighed in on Scorsese’s criticism of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Robert Downey Jr., identified for his position as Iron Man, advised Howard Stern in 2019 that he appreciated listening to the “Taxi Driver” filmmaker’s take however his feedback have been akin to “saying Howard Stern isn’t radio” and so they made no sense.
“Movies are movies. All people doesn’t like his stuff both,” Jackson mentioned. “All people’s received an opinion, so I imply it’s okay. Ain’t going to cease no person from making films.”
