Jane Campion he is not a fan of superhero movies. “I hate them,” the Oscar-winning woman told me at the AFI Fest screening of her new drama, “The Power of the Dog.” “I really hate them.”
Campion said her thoughts when I asked her if she would be interested in directing a superhero movie. “I think it’s safe to say I will never do that,” he said, adding, “They are so noisy and ridiculous. Sometimes you laugh well, but I do not know what happens to capes, an adult man in tights. I feel it must have come from pantomime. “
