We live in a society that loves to ask the world’s most famous filmmakers what they think of superhero movies. This urge to learn Ridley Scott or Jane Campion‘s opinion about movies about Superman stops ‘world engine’ says more about us than about them. Anyway, because they refuse to validate our love for superhero movies, a true hero decided to create a bot that could generate what every director thinks of today’s most common box office giants.
roadside news reporter Adi Robertson, “in the name of journalistic efficiency”, created a text-based artificial intelligence on AI Dungeon that simulates the unique experience of asking a respected director about Marvel movies.
Correct. You can finally ask Ingmar Bergman what he thinks of the genre. It turns out he believes they “suck”. Even Captain America: The Winter Soldier? What about Bergman? On the other hand, Federico Fellini, the maestro behind 8 1/2, The good life, and Julia of the Ghosts, thinks, “They’re fun.”
“Let’s face it – we all love to see people in tights fighting each other,” de Fellini bot continues.
But it’s not just directors. Everyone’s opinion on superhero movies is up for grabs. For example, according to the bot, former US President Barack Obama thinks “superheroes are a poor substitute for real literature and art.” cheeky. Will Superhero Movies Ever Recover From Obama’s Verbal Attack?
But we’ll keep judgment until Jean-Luc Godard weighs in. He will have just turned 91 when… Spider-Man: No Way Home is out and will no doubt have some thoughts on the multiverse and whether or not Andrew Garfield and Toby Maguire made it into the movie.
But realistically, we should probably assume that if these influential directors loved superhero movies, they would make this one.
Ask them here yourself.
