Aniston takes dig at the Marvel films
Los Angeles: Jennifer Aniston is the latest A-list Hollywood figure who has taken a dig at the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The 'Friends' alum shared her two cents on the worldwide hit film franchise in an interview with Variety for its new Power of Women issue, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Aniston, 50, who has starred in blockbusters such as Bruce Almighty, Marley & Me and Horrible Bosses, was asked the reason why she decided to return to TV with Apple TV+'s 'The Morning Show'.
"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', " she said.
Stating that Marvel films are ruining movie-going experience, she said: "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."
After her remarks about MCU were highlighted in a number of articles, people have taken to Twitter to clap back at the actor. "Diminishing Cinema... did she ever go and watch her own movies... that's Diminishing," one user twitted.
Aniston has not responded to the backlash she has caused with her statements. Her comments on Marvel films came several days after Martin Scorsese drew similar outrage for dissing the popular superhero film franchise.
