No matter how many Marvel movies come and go, they are always highly anticipated and the numbers only prove this fact further. Avengers: Infinity War grossed over 2 billion dollars worldwide and also broke the record for the highest-grossing opening weekend.

Rather than having a variety of options to pick from, modern lists of films contain too many superheroes fighting bad guys, which, in the 50-year-old’s opinion, is ruining the quality of cinema.

Jen doesn’t want to see any more CGI characters dancing round in front of a green-screen. Instead, she would much rather see the industry turn back to classic genres, such as rom-coms and comedies.

“And then you’re seeing what’s available out there and it’s just diminishing and diminishing in terms of, it’s big Marvel movies. Or things that I’m not just asked to do or really that interested in living in a green screen.” Ouch.

“I think we would so love to have the era of Meg Ryan come back. I just think it would be nice to go into a movie theater, sit cozy. I think we should have a resurgence. Let’s get the Terms of Endearment back out there. You know, Heaven Can Wait, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Goodbye Girl.”

With almost twenty new superhero films already planned to hype Marvel audiences, it doesn’t look like the film industry is going to be doing a complete 180 any time soon.

With only two or three Marvel movies released in a year, people were wondering what Aniston was talking about.

If the Marvel movies are proving to be popular and giving opportunities to upcoming actors to leave their mark on the genre, then why are we being salty, Jen? The entire film industry is all about creating art that people can relate to and if superheroes resonate with audiences, then that’s that.

The director said that “it’s not cinema,” and compared it to a “theme park.”

“The closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks.” He also said: “It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”
