Renowned actor Sir Anthony Hopkins has expressed criticism about his roles in Marvel’s movies, describing them as “meaningless acting.”
The respected Oscar winner, who is 85, first made his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011, portraying the Norse god Odin in Thor alongside Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.
He later reprised his role in Thor: The Dark World in 2013 and then in Thor: Ragnarok in 2017.
However, it seems he did not exactly pour his heart into these performances.
In an in-depth critique about how the MCU has ‘consumed Hollywood’, he mentioned to the New Yorker, ‘I was put in armor and had a beard glued onto my face. I just had to sit on the throne and yell a bit.’
‘If all you’re doing is acting in front of a green screen, it becomes meaningless acting,’ he further commented.
