Last year, Quentin Tarantino expressed the opinion that the “Marvel-ization” of films has contributed to the decline of Hollywood stars, turning characters, rather than actors, into icons. In a GQ profile, Chris Evans, known for playing Captain America in the MCU films, agreed with the director, but didn’t see it as necessarily negative.

“That was the beauty of working on the Marvel movies. You never had to be the center of attention, even in your own movie sometimes,” he explained, mentioning that even in the Captain America movies, the hero wasn’t always the protagonist. . Before that, Evans mentioned the presence of Robert Downey Jr., who, for him, had a more striking energy, possibly indicating Captain America: Civil War. “Quentin Tarantino said this recently and I thought, you know, he’s right. The character is the star. You’re there, but you don’t feel the weight of being a star,” Evans concluded.

Also interviewed by GQ, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, had a slightly different opinion. “I think this is something that [Evans] realized for himself, and I think a lot of Avengers, including Robert, saw it that way, which actually helped them in their process. But in certain cases, including Chris’s, it didn’t It’s completely true.”

Tarantino expressed this idea in a podcast, discussing how there are currently few Hollywood stars, that is, actors capable of attracting audiences simply by their presence. The characters are what really attract. “Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is that you have all these actors who became famous playing superheroes, but they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star, Thor is the star,” explained the director of Django Unchained and Pulp Fiction at the time. “I’m not the first to say that.”
