Samuel Jackson reacts to Quentin Tarantino's slamming of Marvel films - Los Angeles News
by IANS | Updated Nov 30, 2022
Jackson recently appeared on 'The View' alongside his wife LaTanya Richardson Jackson to discuss the Broadway revival of August Wilson's 'The Piano Lesson', which LaTanya directed and in which Samuel stars.
During the interview, Samuel was asked for his take on the debate regarding frequent collaborator Tarantino, who recently said on the '2 Bears, 1 Cave' podcast that movie stars have disappeared due to the "Marvel-isation of Hollywood."
"It takes an actor to be those particular characters, and the sign of movie stardom has always been, what, asses in seats?" Samuel said during his appearance, quoted by 'People'. "What are we talking about?"
Samuel, who plays Marvel character Nick Fury in the MCU and has also starred in several of Tarantino's movies, referenced the late Chadwick Boseman as a definitive "movie star" from the Marvel era.
"That's not a big controversy for me to know that apparently these actors are movie stars," he said on 'The View'. "Chadwick Boseman is Black Panther. You can't refute that, and he's a movie star."
