Kevin Smith never wants to be behind the camera on a Marvel film, or a Star Wars film for that matter. His reasons? “Rabid” fandoms. Smith already had to battle fans over his Netflix series Masters of the Universe: Revelation and he believes enough is enough.
When asked if he would direct a Marvel or Star Wars film by The Guardian, Smith replied:
He added, “They’ve got a billion people to make those movies, but nobody’s making Kevin Smith movies, so I might as well make them.”
Fan complaints of Masters of the Universe were mostly aimed at the show’s politics, particularly its inclusion of women. Kevin Smith rebuked these claims, saying that the original show had similar politics as well: “I know there’s some people that are like, ‘Hey, man, this show’s woke.’ I’m like, all right, great, then so was the original cartoon we’re fucking sequel-izing. Go watch it again. There are girls in every episode. Deal with it.”
Smith added that the idea of “getting rid of He-Man” was ridiculous: “I see people online go, ‘Hey man, they’re getting rid of He-Man!’ Like, you really fucking think Mattel Television, who hired me and paid me money, wants to do a fucking Masters of the Universe show without He-Man? Grow the fuck up, man. Like, that blew my mind, a bunch of people being like, ‘Oh, I smell it. This is a bait and switch.’”
You can understand why he wouldn’t want to make a Marvel film given the massive fanbases those films have. The ire he may or may not draw would be far larger than what he had received for Masters of the Universe.
