President Donald Trump is getting his first taste of superhero film superheroes in his first full-scale, blockbuster installment of “Avenger’s” comic book universe.
It will be “bigger than Batman,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday, when asked whether Trump had a sense of what Marvel Studios was trying to accomplish.
“We’re going to make a movie that’s bigger than Batman, and I’m very proud of that,” Sanders said, in an interview on Fox News.
We can speak with their vision.” “
So I think we can speak to their ambition.
We can speak with their vision.”
Trump has expressed a desire to make an Avengers movie that he hopes will be the highest-grossing comic book movie of all time, surpassing the $2.7 billion Marvel’s “The Avengers” took in during its summer run.
The Marvel Studios president told The Associated Press in May that he wanted to make the movie “more cinematic” than “Batman v Superman,” and Sanders told reporters the president is not yet “comfortable” with that approach.
But “we’re going bigger than that,” she said.
“I don’t know how that’s going to be.”
Sanders also said she expects “Aquaman” director James Wan to make “a huge investment” in the film, which has been largely financed by the Justice League.
“He’s made so much money in Hollywood over the last 10 years, that we’re confident he will be able to make something really special and really ambitious,” she told reporters.
“It’s going be a great film.”
She declined to say how much “Averaging Joe” star Anthony Hopkins will be in the movie.
“The movie’s not set in the future, but I can tell you that he’s a big fan of the Marvel universe,” she added.
“And he’s very excited about it.”
The film will focus on a group of heroes who fight alongside a mysterious alien force called the Mephisto that is causing massive global chaos.
“A big part of the film is a very specific character and a very particular story,” said Sanders.
“If you’ve read the comic book, you know that they were able to tell a story with a character who had a specific power and that was the main thing we wanted to capture.”
The “Ascension of Thor” movie, in which Hopkins plays Thor, is set for a 2019 release.
“Thor: Ragnarok,” the Marvel superhero film starring Chris Hemsworth, also stars Hopkins.
“They’re both going to have their own different story to tell,” Sanders added.
Trump was also asked how “Batman vs. Superman” would fit into his agenda as president.
“Batman is very much a Batman character, he’s an iconic character,” Sanders replied.
“You know, he represents the hope and the hope of our country and I think a lot of people want to see that reflected in a big way.”
“It will be an exciting time for ‘Batman vs Superman,'” she said, as she talked about the superhero movie series.
“When I look at the history of ‘Batman’ and the history that it’s been in, I think there’s a lot that is unique about that story and a lot about the characters.
I think that the way it’s told, I don
