Simu Liu is speaking up after director Quentin Tarantino criticized the "Marvel-ization of Hollywood," saying on a podcast that those who became famous through the superhero franchise are not real movie stars.

Liu, who gained global notoriety for his titular role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," pushed back on this, saying white directors like Tarantino shouldn't have the only say in who becomes famous.

"If the only gatekeepers to movie stardom came from Tarantino and Scorsese, I would never have had the opportunity to lead a $400 million plus movie," Liu tweeted, referring to Hollywood director Martin Scorsese. "I am in awe of their filmmaking genius. They are transcendent auteurs. But they don’t get to point their nose at me or anyone."

The actor also said Tarantino's "Golden Age" of cinema was "white as hell."

During an appearance on the podcast “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast, the “Pulp Fiction” director spoke about his ambivalence toward Marvel movies and the impact he thinks they’re having on the industry.
