Simu Liu Criticizes Tarantino For His Anti-MCU, Golden Age “White as Hell”

Simu Liu is tired of hearing critics argue for or against the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Simu Liu responded on Twitter the day that Quentin Tarantino’s remarks criticizing the “Marvel-ization” of Hollywood went viral, criticizing the “Pulp Fiction” director and Martin Scorsese for their criticisms of the MCU.

Liu, whose 2021 film “Shang-Chi” made history as the first Marvel film with an Asian lead and brought in more than $432 million at the global box office, claimed that “If the only gatekeepers to movie stardom came from Tarantino and Scorsese, I would never have had the opportunity to lead a $400 million plus movie. I am in awe of their filmmaking genius. They are transcendent auteurs. But they don’t get to point their nose at me or anyone.”

In a recent episode of the “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast, Tarantino said that Marvel actors aren’t true movie stars. Liu responds to Tarantino’s claim. Tarantino made the claim that Marvel Studios is more motivated by intellectual property than by genuine star power. “Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is…you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters. But they’re not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star… It’s these franchise characters that become a star.”

“No movie studio is or ever will be perfect. But I’m proud to work with one that has made sustained efforts to improve diversity onscreen by creating heroes that empower and inspire people of all communities everywhere.”

“I loved the ‘Golden Age’ too.. but it was white as hell” the forthcoming “Barbie” actor, who was named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in the World this year, remarked. He seems to be making fun of the veneration for vintage Hollywood shown by directors like Tarantino and Scorsese.

According to the Tarantino podcast, the “Django Unchained” director views Marvel performers more as brand ambassadors than as traditional movie stars. Tarantino also objects to the idea that superhero movies are currently the only thing Hollywood is engaged in.

Tarantino said. “My only ax to grind against them is they’re the only things that seem to be made, and they’re the only things that seem to generate any kind of excitement amongst a fan base or even like for the studio making them. That’s what they’re excited about. And, you know, so it’s just the fact that they are the entire representation of this era of movies right now.”
