Joaquin was asked how he feels about working in a comics movie, he said  “I see it as any other movie,” he said. “I wouldn’t say… ‘I won’t do Westerns.’ It depends on what it is. I don’t really care about the genre. I care about the character and the filmmaker. If you have the ability to transcend the genre, then that’s what you want to do. So I wouldn’t say, hands down, no – I wouldn’t do that kind of movie. There are things where I’ve flirted with the possibility where there was the potential for this to be… something that’s actually interesting to me. But then for whatever reason, they never got to that place where everyone else feels the same way. And that’s key. Everyone has to want to explore the same thing or else it just doesn’t f**king work. I’m not opposed to it. I don’t make decisions on the budget or things like that – it’s really the filmmaker and the character.”

He shared that they can laugh at times but ultimately they have to rate it which required a lot of introspection. He has said  “Every new show teaches you a lot – about the world and who you are. Doing Comicstaan was a great experience completely. We all secretly judge comedy, but it was a challenge to do it publicly as your opinions really matter. You can laugh but to come down to a number and rate an act, it needed a lot of introspection.”
