Marvel films are benchmark for comedies today: Seth Rogen

Actor Seth Rogen says the success of Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has made it difficult to make comedy films.

In an interview with Games Radar, the 38-year-old actor-writer said the audiences nowadays wants comedies to be in the same vein as big-budget MCU movies Thor: Ragnarok and Ant-Man. “Something that me and (regular collaborator Evan Goldberg) talk about a lot is how Marvel movies are comedies. Thor: Ragnarok is a comedy. Ant-Man is a comedy at its core. So that’s what’s out there.

He added comedy filmmakers must realise that their main competitor now is Marvel, which is very well funded. (PTI)
