Neill Blomkamp Has A Pointed Response To Denis Villeneuve's Marvel Comments: "What A F*cking Asshole"
A bit harsh! Following Dune director Denis Villeneuve's comments about Marvel movies, Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Demonic) has taken to Twitter to call the filmmaker out with a colorful response...
Demonic director Neill Blomkamp has responded to Denis Villeneuve's comments about Marvel movies, and it's probably fair to say he overreacted just a little.
As we reported earlier today, the Dune filmmaker was asked about the massive superhero movie boom during a recent interview, and said he believes “there are too many Marvel movies that are nothing more than a cut and paste of others.” In a separate interview on the same subject, Villeneuve did clarify his statement by adding, "It doesn’t take anything away from the movies, but they are formatted.”
Many would agree with this viewpoint, and even if you happen to think he's way off, it'd be hard to read these comments as an attack or insult to the genre or its fans. The man is simply expressing his opinion, after all.
And yet, Blomkamp felt the need to Tweet the following:
What a [frick]ing asshole https://t.co/vXH13aIAA1— Neill Blomkamp (@NeillBlomkamp) September 16, 2021
We have no idea why Blomkamp shared such a harsh response, but he certainly seems to have taken offence to his fellow filmmaker's views on The MCU for some reason.
We'll be sure to update if the District 9 director decided to follow-up, but for now, let us know what you make of this situation in the comments down below.
