Ridley Scott Isn't Interested In Superhero Movies

Ridley Scott is no stranger to Sci-Fi, but don't expect him to be raking the helm on any DC or Marvel movies anytime soon. In a recent interview, the Alien director revealed that superhero movies really aren't his thing, and he'd much rather spend his time making smart films for the fans.

"Superhero movies are not my kind of thing – that’s why I’ve never really done one. [I’ve been asked] several times, but I can’t believe in the thin, gossamer tight-rope of the non-reality of the situation of the superhero. I’ve done that kind of movie – Blade Runner really is a comic strip when you think about it, it’s a dark story told in an unreal world. You could almost put Batman or Superman in that world, that atmosphere, except I’d have a f**king good story, as opposed to no story!”

He would also mention how concerned he is for the future of film.

“I want to keep doing cinema and I hope it doesn’t affect those of us who still keep making smart films. I’m hoping it doesn’t affect me.”

Scott's next film, Alien: Covenant, arrives on May 19th, 2017.
