"Dark Knight Rises" Star Cillian Murphy Is Tired of Superhero Films

Though Cillian Murphy appeared as Scarecrow in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" film trilogy, don't expect to see him another superhero movie anytime soon. Speaking to Vulture, Murphy weighed in on the current glut of superhero films and explained what sets Nolan's "Dark Knight" films apart.

"Have they exhausted every single comic book ever?" Murphy inquired. "I don't know where they're coming from anymore."

"It was a different time back when we made 'Batman Begins,'" he went on to say. "I think that Chris [Nolan] has to take credit for making that trilogy of films. I think they're so grounded in a relatable reality."

"Nobody in those films ever had a superpower," he explained. "Do you know what I mean? It's a slightly heightened level of storytelling, where New York is Gotham, and no one did anything magical. Batman in his movies just did a lot of pushups and was, like, British. So that's what I loved about them. My kids love the Marvel movies, but I don't know. I don't watch them."

Murphy will next appear in "Dunkirk," another Nolan film, which is scheduled to open on July 21, 2017.
