The director of Guardians of the Galaxy quotes The Suicide Squad, Deadpool, The Eternals or even Peacemaker to answer the filmmaker.

Directors who don’t see themselves directing comic book super-movies include Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodovar and Steven Soderberghwho recently explained that he was not interested in these little credible universes, in particular because “no one fucks” in these movies. “Nobody! I wouldn’t know how to write characters in a universe where they don’t exist”commented the director of Sex, Lie and Video and the saga Ocean’s.

james gunnwho knows a lot about heroic productions (we owe him Great, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Suicide Squad and its spin-off series Peacemaker), he has replied on Twitterphotos of Margot Robbie or John Cena in support: “With all due respect, Steven Soderbergh, some fuck. In my films or those of Zack Snyder, Richard Donner, Chloe Zhao and Tim Miller, the first examples that come to mind. Finally, in defense of Soderbergh , it’s true that sex seems non-existent in several comic book adaptations, it’s not as if his remark was unfounded.” He then adds that “sex is after all not necessary in all stories”before recognizing that“to have an entire universe of movies with no sex at all is to deny who we are as human beings (and forget how each of us got to earth).” So they pretty much agree, actually…

For Martin Scorsese, Marvel movies are not cinema
