Every century calls for a different trend in Hollywood. From comedy duos to gangster movies to musicals, Hollywood has entered the era where superhero movies are more popular than ever. Almost every hero has a movie now, even the less popular ones.

Recently, Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill earlier said that he wants better stories to come out of today’s superhero movies. The actor had established himself as a big screen icon, and his work goes beyond being one of the most popular characters in any sci-fi movie. He, too, was the voice of Joker in “Batman.”

Nowadays, Hamill is busy reprising the role that cemented his name in the industry for the latest “Star Wars” trilogy. However, he has opinions about Hollywood’s latest trend, and they are not exactly warm.

Talking to USA Today, he discussed what he thinks about the overcrowded landscape of superhero movies. Marvel and DC have gone full blast in establishing their presence in the cinematic universe and do not plan to stop soon. While fans get their superheroes clad in costume and shining their glory, Hamill said that these movies should shift their focus to actual storytelling.

The actor said that he does not know what is going on with superhero movies. While he thinks these are fantastic, he also believes that producers are already reaching a point of saturation. This is why they have to incorporate better storytelling to set these movies apart from the rest. There are a lot of gimmicks, but they can only take a viewer’s experience to a certain point.

Not everyone may agree that superhero movies need better stories, since these are why viewers watch these movies to begin with. Recently, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II” and DC’s “Wonder Woman” both did phenomenally at the box office. Both were not really competing with one another, but were equally received as they acquired tremendous ratings across all platforms, notes Screen Rant.

In the same interview, Hamill expressed sadness over the passing of one of TV’s most iconic superheroes, Adam West. Hamill remembers him as a nice guy and an iconic figure for everyone back then. Adam West was his childhood Batman and his biggest inspiration when he lent his voice to The Joker.
