Actor and comedian Seth Rogen, who had made his acting debut on ‘Freaks and Geeks,’ revealed that he thinks Marvel movies belong to the comedy genre, in an interview with GamesRadar. The lead actor of the movie, ‘An American Pickle’ said:
“Something that I and Evan talk about a lot is how Marvel movies are comedies. Thor: Ragnarok is a comedy. Ant-Man is a comedy at its core. So that’s what’s out there. There are $200 million comedies out there, and so that’s something, as a comedic filmmaker, to be aware of. That is the benchmark that people expect!”
The ‘40-Year-Old Virgin’ star stated also that comedy films compete with Marvel movies. He added then:
“If you’re going to make a big huge comedy, just know that your competition is Marvel. Not to say you should not make those types of films, but know that’s what audiences are seeing, and that, when you see those movies in theaters, they are playing like comedies. They are legitimately funny and star comedy stars.”
During the interview, Rogen claimed that his movies offer something different to audiences than Marvel movies do. Giving the ‘Good Boys’ as an example, he continued:
“What we’re offering is pure comedy and emotion and relatability and nostalgia. That’s the trade-off. You don’t get to see the God of Thunder being hilarious, but you get to see something that maybe represents your actual life, and that’s very gratifying in another way.”
