Peter Jackson Will Never Direct a Marvel Film

Peter Jackson Will Never Direct a Marvel FilmSubmit Comment
While promoting "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies," director Peter Jackson was asked whether he has any interest in directing Marvel comic book film. His answer is simple, "No."

"I don't really like the Hollywood blockbuster bandwagon that exists right now," he replied. "The industry and the advent of all the technology, has kind of lost its way. It's become very franchise driven and superhero driven."

Jackson continued: "I've never read a comic book in my life so I'm immediately at a disadvantage and I have no interest in that. So now it's time for us to step back. We're heading towards something of that scale. I'm not going to head off and do a Marvel film. So if I don't do a Marvel film, I don't have any other choice -- I've got to go make a small New Zealand movie!"

"Peter Jackson was asked whether he has any interest in directing Marvel comic book film. His answer is simple, "No.""

I guess so. Whatever. He's too busy wresting and wrestling Silmarillion away from the greedy estate of Tolkien to do anything beyond Lord of the Rings, ostensibly.

Wasted f*cking talent. Dude could have been the next Kubrick but the f*cker sold his fat hirsute soul for commercial success instead.

What a hypocrite *sshole. He produced THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN (not a superhero movie, BUT based on a adventure COMIC BOOK series by Hergé). And even Jackson will direct the Tintin sequel!

Yet freighters was the sh*t. Hope he goes back to that kind of film making. As his lotr and hobbit films are on a scale similar to what marvel does.
