I noticed it, too, and I used to be like, ‘That was the dumbest, most contrived—’ And he or she’s like, ‘Don’t get me began.’ She discovered it condescending and I agreed.”
“In order that simply created for us a goal, a satirical goal. When there’s one thing actually ridiculous in both superhero or movie star or Hollywood tradition, we’ll instantly go after it. It’s a simple shot,” he remarked.
