Robert Downey Jr Says Superhero Genre is "Getting Old"

Robert Downey Jr Says Superhero Genre is "Getting Old"Submit Comment
While promoting "The Judge," Robert Downey Jr spoke about the current state of superhero films. Surprisingly, he feels that the entire genre is getting old.

"Honestly, the whole thing is just showing the beginning signs of fraying around the edges. It's a little bit old," he said. "Last summer there were five or seven different ones out. I feel that they are critiqued by a different metric to any other movie. But also they are more forgiven because they operate on a different frequency."

With several major studios focusing their efforts on superhero films, they are betting that the genre is far from old. And according to Downey, the best has yet to come.

"This new 'Avengers' may well be the best Marvel movie, and by the way that's saying a lot, because I thought 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was great," he said. "And 'Iron Man 3' turned out great, and 'Cap 2' was awesome. And they'll be some surprises in the next little while too."

I don't think the genre is getting old, I think the movies just suck.

Sounds to me like Downey Jr. is concerned about his post-Marvel career.

And yet he continues. If this sh*t is old then move on...and stop being yourself in every role and maybe get more parts, f*cking smart ass dumb ass is done better by many younger guys anyway you whiney bitch.

He had me at GOTG was great, but lost me after saying Iron Man 3 was great.

(Confused)

RDJ said he is willing to guest star as just Tony Stark but not as Iron Man on Agents of Shield but said Marvel's contractual red tape is currently preventing such an appearance.

Maybe this renegotiation for Capt Amer 3 can fix this.

RDJ is full of sh*t across the board. A walking contradiction. He has said different things in every interview he has done. I love it or I hate it.
Hes either trying to entice the fan boys into asking more questions.
Or trying to cover his ass, in case one of his movies fail, and he can say I told you so.

Either way it's a win win for Marvel for keeping everybody's attention. Well played RDJ...Well Played
