Michael Gondry did not have the best experience at Comic-Con last July. Instead of cheers and nerdgasms being heard Gondry was drowned out by the deafening roar of the crowd as they walked out on his The Green Hornet panel. In a recent interview he was finally able to share his thoughts about the experience.
Here is what Gondry had to say about the situation to The Guardian.
"I usually identify with the nerds," the director is reported as saying, "but these ones just reinforce the social rules. Their values are fascistic. All those people marching around in capes and masks and boots. The superhero imagery is totally fascist! When you step into this genre, they feel it belongs to them. They want you to conform, or they won't like you. They want the conventional."
The Green Hornet will be released January 14, 2011 in both 2D and 3D.
