“Captain America” star Chris Evans has a completely different opinion than veteran filmmaker Steven Spielberg on the longevity of superhero films.
The 34-year-old Chris Evans sees no end of the genre and thinks it will continue to grow, reported Aceshowbiz.
“I certainly think that given the fact that technology has finally advanced, they’re always going to be looking for other films to match their technological accomplishments.
“Any film that can incorporate these larger-than-life characters and fantastical locations and plots, the technology wants to prove they can do it so whether it’s superhero film or fantasy in general, that’s going to surge for a while,” Evans said, while promoting his directorial debut “Before We Go”.
Last week Spielberg hit the headlines for saying, “We were around when the Western died and there will be a time when the superhero movie goes the way of the Western. It doesn’t mean there won’t be another occasion where the Western comes back and the superhero movie someday returns. Of course, right now the superhero movie is alive and thriving.”
