'Guardians' Director James Gunn Responds to Jodie Foster's Criticism of Superhero Movies

Jodie Foster recently slammed movie studios for making superhero movies that feel like going to a “theme park” and now Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has issued a response.

“Going to the movies has become like a theme park,” the Oscar-winning actress turned director said in an interview with Radio Times. “Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking — you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth… It’s ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world.”

Gunn wrote a respectful response on his Twitter account in which he called Foster‘s view on superhero movies “old-fashioned,” but admitted it’s not “totally without basis.”
