Because he’s “not a hired hand,” Quentin Tarantino won’t direct a superhero film

Tarantino stated that he has no desire to helm a superhero film because he is “not a hired hand.”

Glenn Whipp, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times, released an interview with the director on Thursday to coincide with the publication of his book “Cinema Speculation” on November 1.

Tarantino told the Los Angeles Times that filmmakers “can’t wait for the day” when superhero films are no longer popular, adding that these films have a “chokehold” on audiences. The writer of “Kill Bill” also made it plain that he did not wish to participate in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC Extended Universe.

“You must be a hired hand to perform such tasks. “I am not an employee,” he stated. I’m not looking for a job.”

This is not the first time that Tarantino has criticized big films. He told Deadline in 2020 that he was engaged in a “battle for movies” against Marvel, Star Wars, and James Bond flicks. He stated that “cinema that does not fall into that blockbuster IP-proof category” was the sole reason why superhero films did not dominate the box office.

“It would have been the year in which their global dominance was complete. But it wasn’t exactly true. “A great deal of original cinematic content was released and demanded to be viewed, particularly in theaters,” he said.

The Rome Film Festival will feature Quentin Tarantino on October 19, 2021.

The accomplished film director told the Los Angeles Times that he appreciated “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope” when it was released in 1977. Even though it wasn’t his preferred genre of film, he recalls that he “felt like a million dollars” after watching the picture when he was 14 years old.

“Obviously, I enjoyed ‘Star Wars.’ What can be disliked? But I recall — and this is not a negative “but,” but a positive one. I was completely taken along by the film, and I was rocking and rolling with these characters… “I felt like a million bucks when the lights turned on,” he remarked. “As I looked about, I had a moment of realization and thought, ‘Wow! What a fantastic time at the movies!'”
