‘It’s ruining viewing habits’: Jodie Foster slams superhero movies as cinematic equivalent of fracking uperheroes may have met their greatest adversary — Jodie Foster.

The 55-year-old has claimed Comic book movies are ruining cinema.

In an interview with Radio Times Magazine, the actor and director slammed the likes of Marvel and DC production as the cinematic equivalent of fracking.

‘Going to the movies has become like a theme park,’ she said.

‘Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking  — you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth.’

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast with guest correspodent Victor Dandridge Jr.:

Michael Dolce: So you got to get in there, we want to know the Hall H, from all my expert analysis and studying the Twitter chatter, Thor: Ragnarok was the big buzz, am I correct? What was the feeling on the floor?

VD: Warner Brothers is in the morning. Marvel is in the evening, so its the last one to close it out. You got people in Hall H waiting all day for the Marvel Studio crowd, so you got the lasting impression and the thing you talk about the most. So while your in there, yeah you can tweet, but your trying to pay attention on whats happening or whats going to happen. It’s a genius move by Marvel and I do feel bad for Warner Bros because they do get overlooked. From my position and first time being there, Warner Bros gave a better presentation.
