Marvel movies have ruined Hollywood comedy: Pitch Perfect actor Adam Devine
Adam Devine doesn’t think Marvel films are doing any good to the Hollywood classic comedy genre. Appearing on Theo Von’s This Past Weekend podcast during his press tour for Netflix’s The Out-Laws, Adam Devine said that Marvel movies and other superhero films have killed the traditional Hollywood comedy.
Why he thinks like this is because he feels that Marvel movies rely a lot on humour like your Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy films and thus, they have become Hollywood’s new de-facto comedy films.
Why he thinks Marvel films have killed Hollywood comedy?
“Every studio used to put out several comedies a year,” Adam Devin said. “And there were like 45 comedies in the theatre per year. So every week or so, there’s a new comedy in the theatres. Now, last year, there were like 6 or 7. It’s crazy.”
As for Adam’s latest project, The Out-Laws, is produced by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison company. The film also stars Pierce Brosnan, Nina Dobrev and Ellen Barkin. The film is now streaming on Netflix.
