Tim Burton Doesn't Like Marvel Films, Says Superheroes Should Be Happier

Posted: December 17th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Tim Burton DoesnSubmit Comment
Now that superhero movies have become extremely popular, Yahoo! reached out to "Batman" director Tim Burton to get his thoughts on how the genre has changes over the years.

"Marvel, they have their thing and there's a certain formula to it all which seems to still be working," he said. "But how many times can you say 'you're wearing a funny costume' with the tights and stuff? That's been going on for 20 years now. Yes, we all know that superheroes are damaged individuals. Maybe we need to see a happy superhero?"

Burton's "Batman" movie wasn't really about a happy superhero. But according to the director, things have become much darker. "I remember 'Batman' getting so much flak and criticism at the time for being too dark," he explained. "And now 20-30 years later, it now looks like a light-hearted romp, it's such a strange thing to go through."

Actually I agree, which is why I prefer Marvel films over DC by a wide margin.

Dude, comics are much, much older than their film incarnations, and no one has tired of them yet. Batman is going on a century old, and if anything he's more popular now than he was back in the fifties when he was a mainstay of lonely, depressed male children everywhere.

So I don't get that sh*t. And happy all the time isn't realistic. No one wants 60s Batman camp. On the other hand, no one wants 70s Incredible Hulk saturnine either. So Marvel strikes a nice balance between Prosac euphoria and Nolan's suicidally-depressing flicks.

Like I said, realism. Real realism, not Nolan's bleak, miserable and gritty version of it.

Isn't this f*cker the leader of the Goth Kids or some sh*t? f*ck you Tim. Go paint Johnny Depp up like a dead whore and make your sh*tty movie. I don't care what you're calling it. It will be a joke since it's being directed by the genius that did a sh*tty remake of Planet of the Apes only to change the most iconic, ironic, twist ending in the history of scifi to make the entire film mean diddley sh*t and become a f*cking joke. You're damned lucky Chuck Heston is gone or he would shoot you in the face with his musket for f*cking up the ending of his film.

Now show us how happy your heroes are by dressing everyone up in black and putting scissors on their hands or some other stupid sh*t. Pretentious d*ckhead.

well it depends on which superhero we're talking about.Batman ? hell no,dude should remain dark and serious.Superman ? defiantly more happy then that depressing sh*t 'Man of steel'.Regarding 'Marvel' films - most of them seem pretty cheerful to me.

Well.. There's still a 3rd film to be made. So you never know, it could still have the same ending Jaffin.

But I do agree, who gives a f*ck about What tim burton does and does not like.

Who should we cast in the role made infamous by Charleton Heston?

Marky Mark from the Funky Bunch. He once put out an old Vietnamese man's eye on the sidewalk to show everyone he was "hard core street."

I don't know. I sometimes wonder if he really can feel the vibrations.

His brother was a Backstreet Boy. How could he not make Chuck Heston proud?

Marky Mark never actually blinded that guy, he lost his sight in that eye during the Vietnam war.

That's funny. Considering that comment coming from a guy who found superheroes so boring that he effectively made Batman a guest star in his own movies.

Also, Tim Burton not wanting dark and gritty is like Michale Bay not wanting boobs and explosions. Any movie I can remember from him is either creepy, dark and/or depressing.

It's kind of funny. He is the first person to actually say Marvel is darker than DC films...and really they are. Yes Batman is a brooding figure. But he also had a sense of morality and justice. In Marvel films we see heroes almost go dark side on various occasions whether it's Hulk in a Jekyll/Hyde scenario or Stark becoming a sort of Dr. Frankenstein who creates his own monsters with the machines he builds. People who think DC films are darker are actually quite off at the difference between dark and melodramatic.

He's right!

Hulk is not a happy chap. They should make 'Happy Hulk' where he goes around fixing and building communities. Is that what you want, Tim?

@Sleuth

Nowhere in that quote does Tim Burton say that the films from Marvel Studios are darker than the Batman Nolan trilogy nor Man of Steel.

He's saying that in comparison to **HIS** Batman films that they were more light-hearted in comparison.

I completely disagree with Burton and I seriously doubt he has seen every Marvel studios film anyways.

He is too busy with navel-gazing at his own perceived legacy and repeating himself with every film he makes.

U.S. Links North Korea to Sony Hacking

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/18/world/asia/us-links-north-korea-to-sony-hacking.html?_r=0

WASHINGTON — American intelligence officials have concluded that the North Korean government was “centrally involved” in the recent attacks on Sony Pictures’s computers, a determination reached just as Sony on Wednesday canceled its release of the comedy, which is based on a plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader.

Senior administration officials, who would not speak on the record about the intelligence findings, said the White House was still debating whether to publicly accuse North Korea of what amounts to a cyberterrorism campaign. Sony’s decision to cancel release of “The Interview” amounted to a capitulation to the threats sent out by hackers this week that they would launch attacks, perhaps on theaters themselves, if the movie was released.

Seriously ? A happier person ? Am I losing it or has Burton actually watched the last couple of movies he has directed .... happier isn't the way I would describe his characters ... or his audience ....

excruciating constipated comes to mind, when I think of Burton.

Supermovies have to be big

Comic books are there own universe
In some cases multi-universes

Bringing those stories to life on a smaller scale would be an insult to the comics and a disservice to the fans
