The avowed fan of superhero comics defends his series The Boys, is its executive producer, attacking the style of Marvel Studios
That Marvel Studios is critical of the tone of its films is nothing new. But that the one who has become a critic of them is Seth Rogen, it is a surprise. A guy who declares himself an unconditional fan of superhero comics accuses Marvel Studios of infantilism. In fact, it seems that in recent years it is very recurrent and common to use the tagline that these productions, «they are things for children“, and we all know that this is not entirely true.
In a recent interview with Total Film, the actor has revealed the reason why he finds it very difficult to immerse himself in the MCU movies. And it is surprising to hear this from the actor and screenwriter. Rogen has attached his signature to productions such as ‘Preacher‘ (Preacher) for ACM or ‘The Green Hornet’. But you will perfectly understand his words.
Or even something much more recent, since Rogen is pending the premiere of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem‘, a production that is intended for a child and youth audience to a large extent.
But it is that, in addition, Rogen is executive producer of ‘Invincible‘ and of the successful ‘The Boys‘ which is broadcast on the Amazon Prime video streaming platform. On the other hand, if we do not stay in the superficiality of the expression, the only thing that the actor does is defend a genre towards a more adult audience.
Seth Rogen says The Boys owes part of their success to the UCM style
But the comparisons are hateful. And without the existence of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the genre might not exist as successfully or just be for adults, and this industry is what it is largely because it tries to connect with new generations and thereby increase the number of fans. More income. Merchandising moves the industry. And the actor defends his own in his own way.
Rogen assures that the Amazon series would not be as interesting if the UCM did not exist.
“Without Marvel The Boys would not exist”
I think Kevin Feige is a brilliant guy, and I think a lot of the filmmakers he’s hired to make these movies are great filmmakers. But as someone who doesn’t have kids… It’s all geared towards kids, you know? There are times that I forget. I’ll look at one of these things, as an adult with no children, and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, this isn’t for me.
It is also true that the actor has assured that he loves movies, since they mean the culmination of a child’s fantasies, as has happened to him. But while he’s never stopped reading comics, Rogen admits there came a time when he realized there were no more adult comic book television adaptations or graphic novels.
«We have been reading Marvel for 15 years and now there are beginning to be things like this, which is a great addition to this landscape. It is the same genre but without taking into account the younger audience in the slightest. In any case, it is much more oriented to the adult public »
