Sebastian Stan Stirs the Turd in Marvel/DC ‘Feud’
During a recent The Martian interview with Sebastian Stan, Collider asked the Civil War star about the ways in which that film will be “a reboot and reinvention” for Marvel. Stan replied by addressing Zack Snyder’s recent dismissive comments about Ant-Man:
Yeah, I’m sitting here and I’m listening to you and I’m thinking, “Do I want to fire some shots at DC right now, at Zack Snyder?” I read some of those comments where he said something about Batman and Superman, I can’t remember where I read that, somewhere… Something about, “It’s not going to be your flavor-of-the-week Ant-Man.” And I was like, “Oh thanks, Zack. That’s great. Way to do something original.” But I would say we’re still making something very original in our own way. I mean, the Russos are coming in and taking something people are used to and they’re shaping it up and changing it in a very different way. They’re not trying to mimic a better Christopher Nolan movie or something like that.
“Mimic a better Christopher Nolan movie?”
In all seriousness, comparisons between Marvel and DC seem like a waste of energy–they’re very different entities, and that’s not a bad thing. (It’s like comparing apples and incredibly serious oranges!)
But there’s also something satisfying for me about seeing Marvel actors passionately defending the MCU as a whole–it’s validating to see that they have as much passion for the franchise as fans do.
