Seth Rogen Says Marvel Films Are Competition for His Big Comedies: 'They Are Legitimately Funny'

Rogen listed his 2019 film Good Boys as an example of a comedic film with a smaller scope than Marvel that offers something different to audiences.

"What we're offering is pure comedy and emotion and relatability and nostalgia. That's the trade-off," he said. "You don't get to see the God of Thunder being hilarious, but you get to see something that maybe represents your actual life, and that's very gratifying in another way."

Rogen has been busy promoting his new HBO Max movie An American Pickle, in which he stars as a Polish immigrant, Herschel Greenbaum, who is preserved in a vat of pickle brine after an accident in the early 1900s only to wake up in the 21st century.

In modern-day Brooklyn, Herschel meets his great-grandson Ben, also played by Rogen, promising a funny — and emotional — fish-out-of-water story about the American Dream.

An American Pickle is available to stream on HBO Max now.
