Bruce Campbell is a legendary horror actor best known for his role as Ash Williams in the Evil Dead trilogy and the TV show Burn Notice. He also had cameos in the first Spider-Man trilogy due to his friendship with director Sam Raimi.
He recently gave an interview to i09 and among the things he expressed his dislike for (money in Hollywood, heavy costumes, excessive green screening) was superhero movies.
But these guys who have this special superhero power, to me that’s Snoresville. If you don’t have kryptonite, then—Batman v Superman. Stupid, stupid, stupid concept. Never should’ve been made. Superman who can like, make the world go backwards with centrifugal force.
He also went on to imitate how big budget superhero movies are slapped together with green screens and without the actors all in the same location.
“Okay, Scarlett Johansson. Here’s your mark on the floor. We already filmed all the other people. We already put them here. So you have to be here because that’s where your places on storyboard two eighty-six dash nine that we’re shooting you in Iceland in the Saturday afternoon.”
But Campbell doesn’t mind lower budget movies.
I’m good. I’m going back to low budget movies for the SyFy channel.
Campbell is currently hosting a new version of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on Travel Channel.
