“I feel like superhero movies kind of ruined comedies” says Adam DeVine on how Marvel is ruining comedy genre

According to the Modern Family star, Adam DeVine, “Superhero movies kind of ruined comedies.” The Pitch Perfect actor made an appearance on “This Past Weekend with Theo Von,” where he stated that television shows have the best deliverance of comedy while the same can’t be said for films. “My theory is I think, I think like Marvel ruined it,” he shared. “I feel like superhero movies kind of ruined comedies because people go to the theater and you expect to watch something that costs $200 million to make, and comedy movies aren’t that.”

The actor claimed that pitching a comedy film to studio executives is much more difficult these days.“You have to, like mask it. This is why it’s a big action-comedy because you really have to go like action, action, and then it’s a comedy,” he referred to his last project “The Out-Laws.”

“You watch comedies nowadays and you’re like, ‘This isn’t a fucking comedy. Where are the jokes? Where’s the bits?” he added. However, DeVine is not the first actor to discuss Marvel’s influence on Hollywood in public.

In 2019, Jennifer Aniston publicly expressed her opinion, telling Variety that Marvel was “diminishing” the film industry, which finally led to her decision to go back to television. She said, “It wasn’t until the last couple of years when these streaming services were just sort of exploding with this amount of quality that I actually started to think, Wow, that’s better than what I just did, And then you’re seeing what’s available out there and it’s just diminishing and diminishing in terms of, it’s big Marvel movies. Or things that I’m not just asked to do or really that interested in living in a green screen.”

In the same year, Jennifer Lopez agreed with Aniston that it was getting more difficult to produce films that didn’t follow the superhero franchise’s formula. She shared, “But the smaller more movies about humanity and people and life and struggles, you don’t get that as much unless you do that for nothing and there’s no budget and you’re like scraping it together. On top of the movies themselves, then when you have women characters at the front of it, it’s a whole another battle. It’s a whole new layer, and it’s hard to get them made.”
