Sim Liu sends scathing message to Tarantino and Scorsese over Marvel criticism

Star of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Sim Liu does not hold back his thoughts on the two cult directors who came after Marvel movies.

Liu, who became the first Asian actor to star in a film Marvel The cinematic universe was slammed last year Quentin Tarantino as well as Martin Scorsese on Tuesday and asked them not to point their nose at anyone after their criticism of superhero films.

Tarantino who had previously said he would never become an “employee” and would not make a superhero film.recently criticized the “division” of Hollywood and said that the actors in the films were not movie stars, but rather “franchise characters who become stars” during an episode Podcast “2 Bears, 1 Cave”.

Scorsese told Empire magazine in 2019 that Marvel films are “not movies” and later in a New York Times article, explained that the films lack revelation, mystery, or genuine emotional danger.

Liu tweeted that he would never have had the opportunity to star in the Oscar-nominated Shang-Chi. which scored 91% freshness rating among critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

“No movie studio is perfect and never will be perfect. But I’m proud to be working with a company that makes continuous efforts to improve on-screen diversity by creating characters that inspire and inspire people from all communities around the world,” Liu wrote.

“I loved Golden Age too… but it was white as hell.”

Liu isn’t the only Marvel star to weigh in on Scorsese’s critique of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Robert Downey Jr.known for his role as Iron Man, told Howard Stern in 2019 that he was pleased to hear from the Taxi Driver director, but his comments were akin to “saying howard stern is not a radio‘ and they didn’t make any sense.

Nick Fury actor Samuel L. Jackson also weighed in on criticism in 2019 and said variety it was “like saying Bugs Bunny isn’t funny”.

“Movies are movies. Everyone doesn’t like his stuff either,” Jackson said. “Everyone has their own opinion, so I mean it’s okay. No one can stop making films.”
