Hollywood star Mel Gibson blasted “Batman v Superman” saying he is not interested in fake superheros.
The 60-year-old director said making a film with big budget does not guarantee it to be a good work, reported Deadline.
“Im not interested in the stuff. Do you know what the difference between real superheroes and comic-book superheroes is? Real superheroes didnt wear spandex. So I dont know. Spandex must cost a lot,” Gibson said.
The mention of DC Comics blockbuster, which was panned by critics, came up when Gibson revealed the modest budget he worked with on his latest film “Hacksaw Ridge.”
“I look at them and scratch my head. Im really baffled by it. I think theres a lot of waste, but maybe if I did one of those things with the green screens Id find out different.
“It seems to me that you could do it for less…Youre spending outrageous amounts of money, USD 180 million or more, I dont know how you make it back after the tax man gets you, and after you give half to the exhibitors,” he said.
