“Not quite sure how I can make this better for you. It's a gigantic machine, and they make movies at a certain size. And you know, I've experienced that on the DC side with Man of Steel, Zack Snyder, and I've experienced it on the Marvel side via Disney with : and Thunder.

“And I've also experienced the [Sony-produced] Marvel dark universe with Kraven the Hunter.”

Crowe claCrowe stated that he considers working on superhero movies or comic-book adaptations as ‘jobs'.

He stated that if actors think those kinds of films will be ‘life-altering experiences', then they are participating for the incorrect motives.
