Damon Lindelof (Lost, HBOs Watchmen) is a big fan of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and series Disney releases. However, sometimes, he wishes the MCU would come to an end or at least slow down to make each individual film a little more special.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been gaining momentum and showing no signs of slowing down since Iron Man teased the concept of an interconnected universe in 2008. This year alone, we had Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Ms. Marvel, and I Am Groot, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special still to come.
From a slightly more cynical perspective, this is a business. It's an industry. We need to expand this. And I have this internal feeling of like, 'Wow, I wish they made less because it would make each one that came out a little bit more special.'
Lindelof explains how it's difficult to put things to a stop in Hollywood, a multibillion-dollar industry that wants to keep its most profitable IPs for as long as possible.
It's always going to be difficult because once you've got someone's attention, you want to keep it. And so the idea of letting it go and not knowing if youre ever going to get it back again is, in a way, opposite to the way we've always wired.
Lindelof's statements may appear harsh, but they are genuine admiration. During the discussion, he mentioned how he keeps watching every Marvel production and, in general, enjoying them. However, he wished that Marvel Studios would concentrate on fewer productions so that they all have the time needed to become exceptional. Ive made prequels, sequels, and reboots, so I can't be a hypocrite and say, God, bring an original idea. Prometheus and two Star Trek films
