During a recent interview, actor Jason Statham dissed modern superhero movies by saying “I could take my grandma and put her in a cape, and they’ll put her on a green screen and they’ll have stunt doubles come in and do all the action. Anybody can do it ...... it’s all CGI created. To me, it’s not authentic.”
And it reminded me of that one artist who turned his grandmother into a superhero by doing essentially the same. I think it’s actually an awesome idea to have kickass grandmas in movies — CG or no CG — like that badass SSR gatekeeper lady in the first Captain America movie.
If it were up to the Odeck, which comic book grandmas would you adapt into movie heroes?
