Well, it’s clear that Marvel movies have changed the movie landscape for the better, they’ve inspired many other movie universes and they have an irreplaceable style. It has been shuffled from.
However, not many people talk about how they changed the world of comedy, something Seth Rogen spoke about recently. Eventually, the topic was shifted to mid-size comedy movies, especially since many go straight to VOD, like The King of Staten Island. Meanwhile, other projects have been delayed like Wonder Woman 1984.
Seth Rogan Thinks Marvel Movies Are Affecting The Comedy Genre?
To promote his latest film, An American Pickle, Seth Rogen spoke to GamesRadar + about a man trapped in brine for over 100 years. Interestingly, Seth Rogen argued that comedy is alive and well in Marvel movies. This is what he said: Some of the things about Mary and Evan that are comedy from Marvel movies. Thor: Ragnarok is a comedy. There are $ 200 million comedies and therefore as a comedy filmmaker, there is something to watch out for. That is the benchmark that people expect.
Is not wrong. While DC movies have a history of being dark, Marvel movies have increasingly succumbed to light-hearted comedy. The Thor movies are a classic example of this. The first two films show a serious tone with occasional humor. The notion that comedy movies are dying may be the wrong way to look. Maybe Marvel just completely changed the way viewers see comedy for the first time? To Seth Rogen’s debt, he sees that as a good thing and tries for once.
On the other hand, with decades of comedic content and a long-standing loyal fanbase, Marvel movies have a unique status that many other comedy films struggle to fulfill. Plus, while Marvel has promised comedy in their movies, they also have drama, intense action sequences, and incredible special effects. So yes, they are comedies, but they provide a lot to the audience.
However, it remains surprising that comedy is growing rapidly for VOD and streaming. Some, like Palm Springs and The King of Staten Island, has been well received by critics and may have had a solid track record in film. Perhaps the uniqueness of current Hum or Marvel movies has made it impossible for the competition to have mid-size comedy. Either way, we hope that when all is said and done, comedy can return to the theater, respectively.
