The always fun Emma Thompson has weighed in on the debate over “superhero fatigue,” an ongoing debate that has this week seen the likes of Steven Spielberg offering his thoughts.
In a new interview with Vulture, Thompson was asked about the superhero movie boom and reveals she’s already burned out on one particular franchise:
“I loved the original Superman with Chris Reeve because there was a real tongue-in-cheek-ness to it, [but] after a while, you do get a tiny bit cynical about it. The fact that I know they’re going to win out in the end has now slightly interfered with my continuing to go to those movies. If I see yet another Spider-Man, I’m going to have to actually hang myself. I can’t do it anymore! They’re all marvelous, but how many times can you make this franchise, for crying out loud?”
The third modern live-action incarnation of Spider-Man makes his first appearance on screen in next year’s “Captain America: Civil War”.
