Kelly Clarkson Defends ‘Avengers: Endgame’: ‘Not Everything Has To Be Shawshank Redemption’

Clarkson disagrees with the Russo brothers-directed film’s negative reviews.

Kelly Clarkson reviewed Letterboxd comments about some of her favorite movies in a YouTube video for her daytime talk show. When she saw ‘Avengers: Endgame’ in the list, the singer said:

“Who gave this a bad review? [Mockingly] ‘Ugh, it’s just these big epic Marvel things. These big epic superhero movies.’ Fans love them. Not everything has to be ‘Shawshank Redemption.’ Whatever.”

‘Endgame’ premiered in 2019 and concluded Marvel’s Infinity Saga. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth starred in the film.

Clarkson Responds To Martin Scorsese’s Comic Book Films Criticism

Superhero projects started to receive high criticism in recent years, especially for coming out so often. Directors like Martin Scorsese also joined the talks about ‘superhero fatigue.’

One of the movie’s reviews referred to Scorsese’s words about comic book adaptations:

“Scorsese was wrong. Marvel movies aren’t like ‘theme park rides’ because I actually like theme park rides.”

Kelly Clarkson replied:

“There’s nothing wrong with theme park rides. People love theme parks!”

The Singer Loves ‘Endgame’

Someone complained about Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff eating a peanut butter sandwich in a scene despite the film’s $350 million budget. Clarkson explained:

“I know what you’re talking about, and that’s when all of her friends freaking disappeared! They’re gone! Who cares what she’s eating?! Was she supposed to be dining on sushi while all of her friends were gone? Like, I don’t know!”

Then, she shared her own thoughts:

“The end of Endgame was so boss! They all came back! Doctor Strange is incredible. He was just like br, br, br, br with the magic, and like everybody came through and was like, ‘What’s up, Thanos?’ It was really great. I loved it.”
