Independence Day: Resurgence director Roland Emmerich has proclaimed that super hero movies are silly. He made this proclamation during an interview with The Guardian as part of his promotional tour for his new alien invasion sequel. While the comments don’t reference Marvel directly Marvel is, at least for now, the most successful producer of said silly movies. He says this his films feature just your typical guy as the hero:

When you look at my movies it’s always the regular Joe Schmo that’s the unlikely hero. A lot of Marvel movies, they show people in funny suits running around. I don’t like people in capes. I find it silly when someone dons a superhero suit and flies. I don’t understand it. I grew up in Germany, that’s probably why.

This seems like trolling considering the director’s movies have included various aliens with ridiculous technology, giant monsters, super soldiers (super…powered), and a bevy of other bizarrely powered folks. Sure, he doesn’t seemed to have the capes thing happening. Well he was successful at his troll because we are reporting it and now we’ve gone and said the name of his movie! Fine, we’ve been had…
