A while back, director David Cronenberg had a bit of a dig at The Dark Knight Rises and those that were calling the movie high art. Now, David has decided to try and clear up the point he was trying to make and explain that he was not having a dig at anybody in particular.

Cronenberg told The Playlist, “What I was saying was that a comic book movie is really a comic book movie. Comic books were -- especially those comic books which I was raised on (I loved Captain Marvel) -- created for adolescents and they have a core that is adolescent. To me, that limits the discourse of your movie if you're basing it accurately on that, and you cannot rise to the highest level of cinematic art.”
He added, “That's my take on it. I went on to say that, of course, technically they can be incredibly interesting, since there are very clever people making the movie and of course have a lot of money they are throwing at it. But creatively, artistically, they are incredibly limited. It got bent out of shape that I was dissing Christopher Nolan, which just wasn't the case.”
