George R.R. Martin is a proud Marvel fanboy, as he admits in his most recent post on his "Not a Blog" LiveJournal. And while the Song of Ice and Fire author initially had his doubts about Paul Rudd's "Ant-Man," he was pretty pleased with the film, writing that it was "right up there" with some of the studio's best. There's one thing, though, Martin doesn't like about Marvel's movies.
In his post about "Ant-Man" from Tuesday, Martin wrote that one of his "quibbles" with the Marvel franchise is its villains. "I am tired of this Marvel movie trope where the bad guy has the same powers as the hero," Martin wrote, citing examples of the Hulk vs. Abomination and Spider-Man vs. Venom. "I want more films where the hero and the villain have wildly different powers," Martin wrote. "That makes the action much more interesting."
If anyone knows bad guys, it's Martin, who has created a fair share of despicable and evil characters in his book series alone. (Think Joffrey and Ramsay.) Maybe Marvel should commission Martin to pen one of their superhero films.
