In a new interview, the actor, who just worked on the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem film and owns the production firm that helps produce for Amazon Prime’s The Boys, was asked what has kept him “turned off” from joining other film franchises like the two comic-based giants.
“Honestly, probably fear. We really have a pretty specific way we work; me and Evan [Goldberg] have been writers for 20 years at this point. It’s a fear of the process, honestly. And I say that knowing nothing about the process. There are a lot of Marvel things I love,” he explains to Polygon.
“It’s mostly a fear of how would we plug into the system they have in place, which seems like a very good system, and a system that serves them very well. But is it a system that we would ultimately get really frustrated with?”
“And what’s nice about [Mutant Mayhem] is that we’re the producers of this. So we dictated the system, and we dictated the process in a lot of ways. We are creating the infrastructure and process for them, not plugging into someone else’s infrastructure and process. We’re control freaks!”
It comes after he earlier stated that Marvel films are primarily aimed at children.
“I think that Kevin Feige is a brilliant guy, and I think a lot of the filmmakers he’s hired to make these movies are great filmmakers,” Rogen stated at the time. “But as someone who doesn’t have children… It is [all] kind of geared toward kids, you know?”
He goes on to add: “There are times where I will forget. I’ll watch one of these things, as an adult with no kids, and be like, ‘Oh, this is just not for me.’”
But he also maintained that The Boys would not exist if Marvel didn’t.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is already in UK theaters and will be released in the US on August 2.
