Director James Gunn takes umbrage with some shots taken at superhero films during the last few days of awards season. First, at the Independent Spirit Awards, Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy—whose wife, Rene Russo, starred in two Thor films—decried the "tsunami of superhero films" that has hit the industry. Then, during the opening musical number of the Academy Awards, Jack Black sang, "Opening with lots of zeroes, all we get are superheroes: Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, Jedi Man, Sequel Man, Prequel Man, formulaic scripts!" On Monday, Gunn responded to these comments via a Facebook post.
