Mark Ruffalo defends extensive number of Marvel projects
Mark Ruffalo has responded to criticism of Marvel for the extensive amount of movies and television shows the studio currently produces.
Over the last 15 years or so, Marvel has become a movie juggernaut. Starting with Ironman, the MCU was made and from there we have seen numerous superhero origin stories, numerous Avengers stories, and now numerous television shows.
The emergence of Disney+ as a platform has led to Marvel producing more and more content for the small screen.
Ruffalo, who appears as Bruce Banner / Hulk in the She-Hulk series, believes each of the projects is different enough to warrant its own production.
“It’s not something I worry about,” Ruffalo told Metro.co.uk
“I understand that these things run their course and then something else comes along.
“But the thing Marvel has done well is that, inside the MCU, just as they do with comic books, they let a director or an actor sort of recreate each piece to their own style, their likeness. Marvel generally lets them bring that to the material."
Marvel more diverse in plot than Star Wars?
Ruffalo has used Star Wars as an example of a franchise that now produces many movies and shows, but each of which is relatively similar.
In addition to theatrically released movies, Disney+ has produced series such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett.
“If you watch a Star Wars, you’re pretty much going to get the same version of Star Wars each time,” he continued.
“It might have a little bit of humour. It might have a little bit of different animation. But you’re always, really, in that same kind of world.
“But with Marvel you can have a whole different feeling, even within the Marvel Universe.”
