Leonardo DiCaprio Is Too Good For Your Franchise Film Bullshit

Leo points out how shitty a lot of superhero movies have been in the most diplomatic way. What a classy gentleman. Let me break this down for you.

He turned down the chance to play Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels (good look, bruh). Leo confirmed that he met with George Lucas to discuss it.

“I did have a meeting with George Lucas about that, yes. I just didn’t feel ready to take that dive. At that point.”

Of course what he means by that is that he didn’t feel ready to take the dive into utter and complete fucking garbage.

DiCaprio, who is basically like the bomb sniffing dog of Hollywood s**t shows, and can probably smell storms before they come, also turned down the chance to play Robin in Batman Forever and Spider-Man ahead of Tobey Maguire.

“But Spider-Man was good!” I can hear you say. Ok, but Spider-Man 3.

Yeah. That’s what I thought. And Leo too. He told Shortlist:

“That (Spider-Man) was another one of those situations, similar to Robin, where I didn’t feel ready to put on that suit yet. They got in touch with me.”

The suit of derivative garbage, yes. Let’s take a second to appreciate Leo not only throwing shade, but casting an eclipse with this last remark on whether or not he would ever play a superhero.

“You never know, you never know. They’re getting better and better as far as complex characters in these movies. I haven’t yet. But no, I don’t rule out anything.”

Superhero films confirmed as previously flat and disinteresting by Leonardo DiCaprio, ladies and gents. He thinks that what you like is stupid.
