Chris Rock Talks Smack About ‘Batman v Superman,’ ‘Fantastic Four’ to JJ Abrams

Tribeca Film Festival 2016: The directors of “Top Five” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” have a candid chat about comic book movies

Chris Rock is one of the greatest comedians of all-time precisely because he speaks his mind, and he didn’t hold back while discussing “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” or last year’s “Fantastic Four” with fellow filmmaker J.J. Abrams at the Tribeca Film Festival this week.

In a candid conversation between the directors of “Top Five” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Rock asked Abrams whether he had seen “Batman v Superman.”

“Did you see that Superman-Batman shit? What the fuck was that? I can’t say anything, they weren’t going to cast me anyway,” said Rock, according to Vulture.com.

The comedian, who is well known for his unique observational humor, suggested it was ridiculous that a human being like Batman could hold his own against a super-powered alien like Superman.

“Superman can’t fight a guy that drives a car!” Rock said. He gets a flat. Like he’s going to fight Superman. Needs Triple A, but yeah, he can fight Superman. He’s got jumper cables, and he’s going to fight Superman.” You can’t argue with that logic, folks!

Rock later asked Abrams if he could direct the next “Fantastic Four” movie, indicating he was likely a fan of “The Force Awakens.”

“I love the Fantastic Four and they keep fucking it up! Like, goddammit. It’s the Fantastic Four,” said Rock.

Abrams suggested that Rock team up with Denzel Washington to make the movie himself, though Rock demurred, joking he was too old to direct a big-screen “Fantastic Four.”

We don’t know about that.

Chris Rock‘s “Fantastic Four” can’t be any worse than the last one from Josh Trank, right?
