Filmmakers as Comic Book Fans Raises Red Flag, Marvel Producer Says

Marvel Comics has many fans, but producer Nate Moore says that movies made by some of those fans are not always a good idea.


You would think that anyone heading into Marvel Studios to make an MCU movie should have some idea of the characters they are about to work with.

However, according to Marvel producer Nate Moore, it can be much more of a hindrance than a help. Moore recently told The Town with Matt Belloni that for

him, there is a “red flag” moment when writers come in with specific detailed knowledge of Marvel Comics. He said:

The producer cited certain people who have made a significant impact on the MCU recently without being heavily invested in the world of comics and therefore

were not afraid to bring something different to the characters they were putting on screen. He continued:


Clearly, some canon changes work for the best, and others simply seem to rile up long-term Marvel Comics fans. Obviously, some changes are out of the

hands of everyone, such as those seen in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever following the death of Chadwick Boseman. The handover of the Black Panther

mantle happens much later in the comics, but due to circumstances, the replacement of T’Challa as Black Panther needed to happen now in the MCU.


When it comes down to it, the MCU is an adaptation of a long history of Marvel Comics, which has seen some characters being reinterpreted several times by

different writers and artists. The MCU is an extension of that, so having writers and directors who are not excessively invested in a particular comic book

version of a character will bring something new to the party. As long as the majority of these changes land well with MCU fans, we can expect more surprises

for those who know the comics and those who don’t.
