Dune director Denis Villeneuve says Marvel movies are cut and paste from other movies
Dune director Denis Villeneuve said the Marvel movies are a “cut and paste from other movies” in a recent interview with El Mundo. Now, he’s not the first filmmaker to criticize what the House of Ideas is doing with his cinematic universe, and he won’t be the last. Specifically, the director said, “There are too many Marvel movies that are nothing more than a cut and paste of others.” Villeneuve also insisted that people see his movies on the biggest screen possible, rather than the day and release date model than other images from Warner Bros. have had since the start of the pandemic. But, this time around, he seems to be aiming for the tone of some of the Marvel movies in a review that wouldn’t be out of place on Twitter or Reddit regarding how the “Marvel Formula” is unfolded. Some are probably going to agree with him and MCU fans are going to stand up for their favorite movies. Villeneuve is definitely entitled to his opinion and feels convinced by the argument he puts forward. But, the Internet will surely debate this whole issue before the end of the day.
Villeneuve recently spoke to Total Film about his optimism about the possibility of a second part for Dune. He is not a man who lacks confidence.
“We’ve been hearing for a few decades that it’s not possible to adapt this book, and that it’s an impossible task. I think deep down in the studio’s mind, it’s still the same!” Villeneuve said Total movie. “So the first thing was to prove that there was a nice, popular movie that can exist, and I think I proved it – everyone at Warner Bros and Legendary, they’re 100 percent behind the project. They think it would need a really bad box office result not to have Dune: Part 2, because they love the movie. They’re proud of the movie, so they want the movie to move forward. And they still did half of it. So, you know, I’m very optimistic. ”
In further comments, the director then revealed that he has already started writing the script for Part 2. Villeneuve seems to really like this part of the process.
“I write [Part Two] now, and I feel like I’m eight again, “he continued.” It’s very rare for me. This is the first time that I experience it where I watch one of my films, and I have a moment of deep gratitude, of deep joy, and I say: ‘Thank you, life, for me. to have allowed to bring that to the screen. ‘ [laughs] I don’t know how others are going to feel about it. But I? Denis Villeneuve when he was 14? Thank you.”
