So ID4 (and disaster porn) director Roland Emmerich spoke with the Guardian over the weekend to talk about his 20 year in the making sequel Independence Day: Resurgence and made mention of what he thought of Marvel movies.
“When you look at my movies it’s always the regular Joe Schmo that’s the unlikely hero. A lot of Marvel movies, they show people in funny suits running around. I don’t like people in capes. I find it silly when someone dons a superhero suit and flies. I don’t understand it. I grew up in Germany, that’s probably why.”
What I can’t understand is why a man who likes making movies where he destroys the world doesn’t like movies where it gets save, but I didn’t grow up in Germany so that’s probably why.
