Seth Rogen won't work with Marvel or DC 'out of fear'

Seth Rogen won't work with Marvel or DC 'out of fear'

The comedian and writer has said he is not keen on working with Marvel and DC

Seth Rogen has revealed that he won't work with Marvel or DC 'out of fear'.

In a recent interview with Polygon, Rogen revealed that fear is his particular reason why he would choose not to work with either of the huge studios.

It can't be an aversion to superheroes specifically either, as Rogen has previously had an executive producer role on the hit Amazon Prime series The Boys, which takes a rather darker and perhaps more real world approach of how superheroes might behave.

So if it's not the content of the movies which is putting Rogen off working on them, what exactly is the reason?

It's actually quite a specific one, but one which has something to do with how he actually works as a writer and comedian.

He explained that he and Evan Goldberg have worked together for a very long time, some twenty years in fact. Over that length pop working with someone you can develop a strong professional relationship.

With writing that means that you can develop your own way of doing things.

Rogen explained to Polygon the reason he won't work with Marvel or DC, saying: "Honestly, probably fear. [laughs] We really have a pretty specific way we work; me and Evan have been writers for 20 years at this point.

"It's a fear of the process, honestly. And I say that knowing nothing about the process. There are a lot of Marvel things I love.

"It's mostly a fear of how would we plug into the system they have in place, which seems like a very good system, and a system that serves them very well.

"But is it a system that we would ultimately get really frustrated with?"

He was worried his writing precess might conflict with the studios'.

The writer of This is the End and Sausage Party seemed to be worried that he would find it difficult to work with a very particular way of writing a movie for Marvel.

There's one other reason as well, which is the target audience for the movie. Rogen revealed this in a separate interview with Total Film.

Rogen said: "As someone who doesn't have children... It is [all] kind of geared towards kids, you know? There are times where I will forget. I'll watch one of these things, as an adult with no kids, and be like, 'Oh, this is just not for me.'"

Rogen's latest movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is set to hit cinemas on 2 August.
