The Marvel Cinematic Universe has made its implementation of comedy a trademark, but Adam DeVine suggests they have ruined the genre.
Outside of its CGI battles, stacked casts and casual disregard that not every series within the franchise needs its own franchise, the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be best known for its implementation of comedy. The MCU does have some hilarious moments. However, some movies are more successful than others. But according to actor Adam DeVine, who is no stranger to the comedy game, Marvel has outright ruined the genre.Speaking on the This Past Weekend podcast (per Variety), DeVine said, “You watch comedies nowadays and you’re like, this is not a f*cking comedy…Where are the jokes? Where are the jokes? There are still some good
programs, but movie humor…it’s difficult. My theory: I believe Marvel ruined it.” This is a bold statement but DeVine defended this as follows: “I feel that superhero movies have ruined comedies, because when you go to the movies, you expect to see something that costs $200 million to produce, and comedy films aren’t like that. You’re thinking, “Why would I pay the same money to watch a comedy movie in the theatre when I can watch something worth $200 million?” And they still make these movies funny, like ‘Oh my God, is that raccoon speaking?’ It’s hilarious! But it’s not real comedy.” As far as the “real comedy” statement, it wouldn’t be outlandish for a Marvel fan to place Ragnarok[comedy], the Guardians trilogy or
Ant-Man in that realm.Do you agree or disagree with Adam DeVine’s statement that Marvel has killed comedy? What is the funniest Marvel film? Give us your take in the comments section below!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkHktAJDWgg
