Fast And Furious Star Michelle Rodriguez Trolled For Saying Marvel Makes Too Many Movies

Fast And Furious Star Michelle Rodriguez Trolled For Saying Marvel Makes Too Many Movies Universal Pictures | ExtraTV

“Fast and Furious” actress Michelle Rodriguez has faced some pretty serious trolling after she claimed that Marvel makes too many movies. While at ComicCon in 2022 to promote “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” the star suggested that different movie franchises should get together to make different projects, especially since what’s being made is getting a bit stale.

“There’s so many movies I’d like to see merge, like think about it, the world’s your oyster,” Rodriguez suggested to Extra, saying that “Fast and Furious” could team up with the “Transformers” team. “Where can you go? How many Marvel movies can you make? Like, come on guys, at some point we’ve got to get innovative with this.”

Of course, Marvel fans thought it was a bit rich that Michelle Rodriguez was having a go, especially given that there are about 9,000 “Fast & Furious” movies. It’s like, how many movies can you make about driving fast cars? (The answer is 12 and counting. But hey, at least they’re good movies to watch with your boyfriend.)

Many took to social media to troll Rodriguez for her tone-deaf comments. “Michelle Rodriguez questioning how many Marvel movies could possibly be made when there’s 3,746 Fast & Furious movies is the joke that wrote itself, fr,” one person joked.

Another took the comments a bit more seriously, saying that the actress had “no business coming at Marvel for making too many movies” since it was “one helluva glass house to be throwing stones in.”

However, there were a few people who agreed with Rodriguez and thought she had a point, saying the “MUC can’t last forever.” Well, neither can “Fast & Furious,” right? At the moment, plenty of fans are still buying tickets to Marvel films. That means there’s a huge appetite for the superhero flicks and no need to slow down on making them anytime soon. When they’re no longer profitable, that’s when they’ll go, no doubt.
