MCU Boss Kevin Feige Reacts To James Cameron’s Avengers Fatigue Remark

While the entire world is waiting for the release of Marvel Studios’ massive blockbuster film, Avengers: Infinity War, Avatar filmmaker James Cameron is not quite happy with the ensemble series getting a new addition. He believes that the world has had enough of superhero films and people will soon get “Avengers fatigue.”

During a recent interview, while promoting his new docuseries AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, the 63-year-old filmmaker said that while he himself is a fan of superhero movies, he, now, thinks it is important to focus on other stories as well.

I’m hoping we’ll start getting Avenger fatigue here pretty soon,” Cameron said. “Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!

Cameron’s remarks come ahead of Avengers: Infinity War’s release this week. While some may take Cameron’s comments on the upcoming Marvel film negatively, Kevin Feige has taken the positive aspect of it.

During an interview with Vulture for the promotions of Avengers: Infinity War, the Marvel Studios President was told about Cameron’s comments and he responded in the best way possible. He said that it’s great to know that even a legend like Cameron loves watching the Avengers movies.

Uh, he loves the movies!” Feige said with a grin before standing tall, fist pumping in the air. “That’s awesome! Wow, James Cameron loves our movies! That’s exciting!?

Notably, this is not the first time that the Avatar director has criticized the comic book genre movies. Last year, he criticized the Patty Jenkins-directed Wonder Woman, by calling it a “step backward” for female protagonists.

While Cameron continues to be critical, it hasn’t stopped other acclaimed directors in the industry from turning their eyes to the comic book genre. Recently,  it was revealed that Director Steven Spielberg was in talks to helm DC’s Blackhawk.

Considering the fact that Avengers: Infinity War is already shattering all presale records, it doesn’t seem like fans craze for the Avengers films will get over anytime sooner.

Avengers: Infinity War is hitting theatres on April 27th.
