Comic artist Frank Miller is no stranger to voicing his opinions on certain comic book movies.
Sometimes they can come across as him being a bit of a dick, but his comments on Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming may surprise a few people.
In a recent interview with Deadline, he spoke about both films.
Here’s what he said about Wonder Woman:
“This has been the best period for superhero movies we ever had. I mean there was that wonderful sunburst of the first Christopher Reeves Superman movie. That was just a ray of sunshine. We’ve had ups and downs over the years. Now look at what we’ve got. Wonder Woman is the crown jewel.”
More specifically on the cast:
“This movie managed to do everything right. The Israeli actress Gal Gadot, not only is she spectacularly beautiful but she’s heroic and she gets away with that costume. Having Chris Pine, the guy who used to be Captain Kirk, play Steve Trevor…he was impeccable in that role…I just thought they managed to have a real good rock ’em, sock ’em adventure movie with a genuine sense of mythology to it. The parts in Amazonia were breathtaking. Her mother, played by Connie Nielsen, she was just wonderful.”
His thoughts on Spider-Man: Homecoming?
“I felt like I was a little kid rocking along with Spider-Man. They’ve had good luck casting Spider-Man, haven’t they? This one was a lot more fun, down to the music. When he was jumping across the rooftop and they were just boogieing with it. It was just so much fun.”
Both films are currently playing in theaters.
