Instead of criticizing the MCU, James Cameron backtracks on his past comments and decides to congratulate Marvel Studios on Avengers: Endgame success.
For the second weekend in theaters, Avengers: Endgame was able to dethrone Cameron’s Titanic to become the second highest grossing movie of all time. Continue on…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest from James Cameron in regards to Avengers: Endgame taking over his Titanic at the box office.
Currently Avengers: Endgame box office is reigning in at $2.3 billion globally and has its eyes set on taking down Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all time.
Marvel fans are said to really want Endgame to overthrow Avatar and its $2.78 billion box office.
James Cameron had this to say.
To (Marvel Studios boss) Kevin (Feige) and everybody at Marvel, An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement. You’ve shown the movie industry is not only alive and well, it’s bigger than ever!
What James Cameron said about Superhero Movies:
Over the years, Cameron has been a bit dismissive of the MCU and DC. Last year when Infinity War was dominating the box office and becoming a worldwide phenomenon, Cameron admitted to feeling like he was ready for something else to dominate.
To recap here is what Cameron said in 2018:
I’m hoping we’ll start getting Avenger fatigue here pretty soon. Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!
But that wasn’t the first time James Cameron has dismissed the comic book movie genre publicly. James implied that Terminator 2 did a better job of handling a strong female lead than Wonder Woman.
He had this to say about Wonder Woman.
All of the self-congratulatory back-patting Hollywood’s been doing over Wonder Woman has been so misguided. She’s an objectified icon, and it’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing! I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backward. Sarah Connor was not a beauty icon. She was strong, she was troubled, she was a terrible mother, and she earned the respect of the audience through pure grit. And to me, (the benefit of characters like Sarah) is so obvious. I mean, half the audience is female!
