Hollywood has brainwashed a lot of America of their “importance” to society while the rest of us see right through that nonsense.
From way up high on their pedestal, these overpaid Hollywood elitists condescend moral authority over working-class America, but they need to look right in the mirror because considering the flux in “shoot’em up” movies and the Me Too Movement, they’re just hypocritical.
And that was on full display Monday night when these A-list actors deluded themselves of their cultural importance to America.
Filmmakers can be unbearably self-righteous about the current climate in America, whether it be through social justice causes or politics.
They actually believe their artwork serves as a cultural change to American society, but what they fail to realize is that only few people actually consider them cultural icons. They’re just people but they think they’re superheroes.
That’s ironic because it’s what happened during the premiere for Marvel’s upcoming superhero movie “Avengers: Endgame,” which will be loaded with a bunch of egomaniacal actors who think they’re God’s gift to the world.
To be fair, “Avengers: Endgame” is on pace to shatter box-office records and that’s undoubtedly an indication this worldwide phenomenon is the finale of twenty-one different Marvel movies – ushering in a new era, which is phase 4.
But these actors portraying these superheroes has unequivocally gone to their heads and inflated egos to match the characters they play.
On the red carpet, Captain America himself, Chris Evans, said, “I have a lot of my friends and family here tonight, and a lot of them are right up here. We have this bond that transcends what we do for a living … I cried like six times [tonight].”
Evans cried at his own work? It’s been long rumored that he dies in the “Avengers: Endgame” will be the final time he plays Captain America and what other way to extinguish that character once and for all but to kill him off? It’s likely to happen.
That means he probably choked up at the demise of his own character, which should tell you a lot about his conceitedness.
Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Tony Stark’s wife, Pepper Potts, in the Marvel movies told Variety – remembering the phone call from Jon Favreau to play the part in the first place, “I thought, ‘Really, you want me to be in this movie?’ He explained that he really wanted, what he considered, great actors to revolutionize how people perceive these big-budget superhero movies.”
What’s the counterpoint to this? The director only wants bad actors for their movie? But do you notice the air of entitlement disguised as humility with her comment? She essentially called herself a “great actor,” by saying it through “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau.
Disney CEO Bob Iger might have stole the title for the most delusional of cultural importance when he arrogantly screamed back to the crowd, “We’ve got a lot of parties and after parties to get to, so we’re just going to say we love you.”
The Hollywood hype train surrounding this movie will certainly get people off the couch mainly because of the curiosity of how it all ends but they are hyperbolizing this movie as such a massive cultural impact on society when it’s just a movie.
