Sure, Aubrey Plaza is going to star in a Miracle series, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t love cinema. The actress has been crowned one of the last ~real~ cinephiles, up there with Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg.
“I’m one of the last people flying that theatrical flag,” Plaza said recently Deadline. “Me, Martin Scorsese and Spielberg, just the three of us. I’m romantic about it. I just believe with all my heart that if you make a film that’s undeniably great, people will hear about it and want to see it.”
Scorsese has has been recorded as an outspoken critic of the Marvel machine, likening superhero movies more to “theme parks” than cinema because action movies don’t properly delve into the “emotional, psychological experiences” of the human condition.
Plaza is no stranger to the MCU — she recently joined its cast WandaVision spinoff Agatha: Coven of Chaos. But he has also been involved in several more famous projects of late, including the thriller Emily the Criminal, the dark comedy Spin Me Roundand season 2 of the HBO series The White Lotuswith the latter being done prime prank spot for the actress. Perhaps most exciting for the moviegoer, the Plaza will appear in the upcoming Francis Ford Coppola film Megalopolis. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
