Moon Knight star Ethan Hawke spoke about Marvel’s treatment of its directors in an article for IndieWire, and explained why he thinks the company’s directors are having a hard time compared to the cast.
He said: “This group of people [في Marvel] Very friendly towards the actors. She may not be friendly with the directors, and that may be what Scorsese and Coppola are talking about. But they love the actors.”
Hook seems to be referring to the famous Scorsese interview in which he claimed that Marvel movies are not cinema. Although Hawk joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the villain Arthur Harrow on Moon Knight, he seems to share his opinion with Scorsese.
He said, “If you keep revising these films that were made primarily for 14-year-olds like Fanny and Alexander or Winter Light, who is going to make Winter Light?”
The long-running Marvel Cinematic Universe has often been criticized for the extent of creative freedom afforded to its directors. But the Marvel cast seems to have had a more positive experience.
“I think Kevin Feige did something great with Robert Downey Jr., and he understood that Downey’s passion was a big part of the success,” Hawke said. “When actors are excited about a role, audiences get excited to watch it. Feigy understands that algorithm so they respect that process very much. Big. The best thing for me about Moon Knight is the Oscar’s performance. It’s amazing to have such a huge budget, with a very good performance.”
However, it doesn’t look like Hawke will stick to his Moon Knight role for long. After all, the season finale left Arthur’s story largely complete.
He said, “I’m not supposed to talk about it. I had to sign a nondisclosure agreement about dealing with them, but I’m not interested in long-term commitments. I protected myself because I didn’t know what it was going to be. I just wanted to know how it was.” What this world is like. This is what young people are watching, so why are we sitting there and telling them it’s not good?”
