Gwyneth Paltrow on Superhero Films: ‘You Can Only Make So Many Good Ones’

When speaking about Hollywood’s overabundance of superhero flicks, Gwyneth Paltrow recently observed that “you can only make so many good” pictures in that category.

In the most recent episode of ‘Hot Ones,’ Paltrow addressed a point raised by Cord Jefferson in his acceptance speech for the Oscar. Jefferson argued that instead of investing in a small number of big-budget films, executives in the business should focus on producing several smaller-budget films.

Paltrow acknowledged the difficulty of preserving originality and quality in the plethora of superhero films, but she also agreed, stressing the significance of guaranteeing a robust return on investment.

Though she is most recognised for her part as Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Paltrow first gained notoriety in the 1990s for her work in low-budget films like ‘Shakespeare in Love’, for which she won an Oscar. 

Looking back on her career, she bemoaned how the focus on high-stakes projects has reduced the opportunity for broad artistic expression in today’s market.

Paltrow’s comments join an increasing number of actors, such as Taika Waititi and Paul Dano, who have voiced worries about the phenomenon of superhero weariness in the film business. 

Dano recently made remarks on how Marvel and DC Studios’ output prioritises quantity over quality, implying that to revitalise the business and draw in viewers, creative thinking outside of the superhero genre is necessary.
