Ridley Scott and the grand tradition of big-name directors disparaging superhero movies

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, and Scott is only the latest filmmaker to express his distaste for the caped-hero genre. His take in particular happens to be backed by his films having earned a total of 40 Oscar nominations, nine wins among them. If you don’t trust the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, maybe you defer to its British counterpart — that’s a total of 58 BAFTA nominations, also nine wins among them. If you don’t trust British film organizations, maybe you’ll take the word of their queen, as Scott was knighted years ago for his many contributions to cinema.
