Ridley Scott, in an interview, stated that superhero movies are boring productions with terrible scenarios, while Alien, Gladiator and Blade Runner are also superhero movies. In an interview with Deadline, Ridley Scott made comments that angered Marvel Cinematic Universe fans. When asked for his opinion on superhero movies, Scott said they were "boring productions with terrible scripts," adding: "The best movies are those with character-driven stories. Superhero movies don't have that. They're boring movies that are poorly written.” The director, who often makes very honest statements about today's Hollywood, said that he has also signed three superhero films: “I shot three superhero movies with great scripts. Alien with Sigourney Weaver, Gladiator and Blade Runner with Harrison Ford. These are the perfect superhero movies in my eyes. Why can't scripts for superhero movies be written well? Sorry, I'm a little out of line, but what I mean is that superhero movies are saved with special effects. If you have some money in those effects, after a while it gets boring for everyone.” The director, who is known for his productivity, has produced two films that are expected to be mentioned in this year's awards season. The first of these is The Last Duel, which brings together Jodie Comer, Adam Driver, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Although the film did not achieve the expected success at the box office, it received generally positive reviews from critics. Another film of the director, House of Gucci, is preparing to be released on November 26. Starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, the movie focuses on the murder of Maurizio Gucci. Giving the good news that the script of the movie Gladiator has been completed, the director also noted that the shooting of the movie will start after the movie Kitbag, which is about the life of Napoleon Bonaparte, starring Jodie Comer and Joaquin Phoenix. Scott will also executive produce the FX series Alien from Noah Hawley, creator of Fargo and Legion. The director announced that the series will not be shaped around the character of Ripley and will take place in the world.
