Opening up his thoughts about the Marvel movies

He said that he doesn’t hate them but he also doesn’t love them. He said that he used to collect Marvel comics like crazy when he was a kid, even in his 20s if these movies were coming out he would totally love them but now in his 60s, he is not quite excited about them.
