Samuel L Jackson on the Superhero genre, not being surprised by their success

Samuel L. Jackson has been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since day one when he appeared in Iron Man‘s after-credits scene and while promoting Glass, he took minute to say the genre hasn’t really changed.

During an interview with Digital Spy, Jackson said it “took a while to come around and get to those other things.”

“There have always been things like that. Even when I was a kid, we had Buck Rogers and some other things that were super in another kind of way, but not just quite that,” he continued.
“Most times, the super things tended to be monster movies, even the Japanese versions of Godzilla and Rodan, all those things, I always look at those as super movies also in another way. It was just a matter of time for the rest of the world to catch up.”
“I’ve been a comic book fan my whole life,” Jackson revealed, “so I knew there was an appetite for movies about the things that we read that had a space for those particular characters that we loved in those comic books to be realized in a real kind of way for us. So I’m not surprised by the success of them. I’m more surprised by the not success of some of the others.”
Jackson plays a younger version of himself in Captain Marvel, will likely play some sort of role in Endgame (despite his Infinity War demise) and them appear in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
