American Today News

I think, you know, the usage of celebrity, the idea of being in these big Marvel movies, is so people … who become fans of yours will come to see the smaller movies. The movies where the subject matter in the story directly affects them. So… I’m excited for all these people to be out here and be so excited about the movie and hopefully they’ll see it. – You know, a lot of people don’t feel comfortable talking about what’s going on in our country, in our society, in this day and age.

A lot of people don’t… feel that they have the right to talk about it. And, the great thing about this movie is is coming out, giving people equal platform. And understanding to be able to come out and talk about the subject matter that this movie addresses. – Are you at all surprised that Fox would take a chance on… what is guaranteed to be kind of a controversial topic and a controversial film. – Uh.. very surprised. You know this, in the 80s and 90s, these were the type of movies we grew accustomed to. And now, people don’t make movies like this anymore. People don’t make movies that 20, 30 years from now we’ll watch and still talk about, you know. And… that’s why I say kudos to Fox for stepping up to the plate and doing it under all costs. – It’s a real pleasure talking to you, man. Thank you for taking the time.
