As dark as the Batman and Man Of Steel movies have been lately, we didn't think it was even possible to throw shade on them!
But leave it to the biggest villain at Marvel to make that slam a reality.
DC has suffered some shame for backing off from a Marvel showdown, and Guardians Of The Galaxy's Josh Brolin quickly added insult to injury.
As he explained what drew him to Marvel, he couldn't help but point out what the competitors are doing wrong! He said:
"There's something about [Marvel] that's so insular and so geeky and so real. I loved it — because I've turned down a lot of those types of movies. Not Marvel, but I've turned down a lot of those types of movies. When they started telling me the story about them getting together in Palm Springs, nine of them flipping burgers and talking about what Thanos was going to do and going, 'What do you think?' like, 'Captain America's going to show up here!' Then, 'Oh my God, what if the Hulk came in at that point?' and all that — I love that s**t. I love it, because those guys are absolutely saturated with that world, and they love story. Another thing that I really loved is, they said that they didn't use directors that did music videos and all that in the past. They would always look for people who had done stories. If you look at James Gunn's oeuvre, he's done even web series, but they're all stories."
That comment could DEF be a reference to Zack Snyder, director of Man Of Steel, a former music video director who is often criticized for putting style over substance.
Josh has admitted previously to almost portraying Batman for Zack's upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice but said the two couldn't see eye to eye on the character.
He then added, "I will bathe the starways in Superman's blood."
OK, that may have been paraphrasing his Thanos character. But box office wise, we're pretty sure that's what he meant! LOLz!
