Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Says Marvel Movies Are Cut & Paste of Other Films

Cover picture for the articleDune director Denis Villeneuve said that Marvel movies are a "cut & paste of other films" in a recent interview with El Mundo. Now, he's not the first filmmaker to criticize what the House of Ideas is doing with their Cinematic Universe, and he won't be the last. Specifically, the director said, "There are too many Marvel movies that are nothing more than a cut and paste of others." Villeneuve has also been adamant about people seeing his films on the largest screen possible, rather than the day and date release model that other Warner Bros. pictures have had since the pandemic began. But, this time, he seems to be taking aim at the tone of some of the Marvel movies in a critique that wouldn't be out of place on Twitter or Reddit when it comes to how the "Marvel formula" is deployed. Some are probably going to agree with him and MCU fans are going to defend their favorite movies. Villeneuve definitely has a right to his opinion and feels conviction in the argument he lays out. But, the Internet will surely debate this entire question into the ground before the day is over.
