Quentin Tarantino behind the camera for a Marvel movie? It is never likely to happen but the director nevertheless has a somewhat special desire in connection with one of his favorite actors.
Quentin Tarantino, in full promotion for his second book “Cinema Speculation”, confides in his future which could involve Marvel despite a recent statement piquant from the director.
Quentin Tarantino: only one condition for a Marvel film?
During his interview with the LA Times, Quentin Tarantino announced that he was on a series project which will start next year. A show on the small screen of eight episodes. But lately, the director of pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds Where Jackie Brown gave his take on Marvel, and clearly, it’s not crazy love.
He stated :
You have to be a mercenary to make these kinds of films. I am not a mercenary. I’m not looking for a job.
Even if his films ended up exploding at the box office, it is true that Tarantino is more in the box of authors than simple doers. A dimension that does not particularly suit Marvel. However, this fixed opinion on the superheroes of the MCU and more particularly on those who make the films, could evolve.
Given the choice, he would take the camera to adapt Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos. Why this series of comics? There may be a connection to the fact that Nick Fury is played by Samuel L. Jackson in Marvel productions. One of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite actors who, as soon as he can, calls on him to help with his works.
His opinion on today’s cinema
Without knowing if Marvel was specially targeted or not, Quentin Tarantino finds that the era we are currently living in is one of the worst in cinema, tied with the 80s and 50s for him.
Even if the 80s represent the period when I personally saw the most films of all my life – at least if we talk about going to the cinema – I find that the cinema of those years , like the 1950s, represent the worst period in Hollywood history. It’s only on par with today’s movies. The only ones that don’t conform to the norm these days are the ones that stand out.
