Director Ridley Scott Says Superhero Movies are ‘Boring as Sh*t’

Ridley Scott does not care about superhero movies.

The Gladiator director recently showed how much he hates superhero movies because he thinks they’re “boring as shit” and lack any good scriptwriting.

Speaking with Deadlinethe director was asked what he learned from Stanley Kubrick’s approach to Napoleon and in his response, he went on a tangent to talk about how much he hates comic flicks.

“Almost always, the best films are driven by the characters, and we’ll come to superheroes after this if you want, because I’ll crush it,” he said. “I’ll fucking crush it. They’re fucking boring as shit.”

“Their scripts are not any fucking good,” he added, explaining his problems with the genre. “I think I’ve done three great scripted superhero movies. One would be Alien with Sigourney Weaver. One would be fucking Gladiator, and one would be Harrison Ford (Blade Runner).”

He continued, “They’re superhero movies. So, why don’t the superhero movies have better stories? Sorry. I got off the rail, but I mean, c’mon. They’re mostly saved by special effects, and that’s becoming boring for everyone who works with special effects, if you’ve got the money.”

Ouch.
