Anthrax's Scott Ian Talks Horror and Superheroes With Little Punk People


(Metal Hammer) Anthrax mainman Scott Ian has discussed his love of superheroes and horror movies in an interview with Little Punk People. And the guitarist also recalls how he thought he'd missed his chance to meet his hero Robert De Niro, only to finally get his wish thanks to drummer Charlie Benante.

Elliott Fullam from Little Punk People started off the interview with a question about superheroes. Ian says: "As a kid growing up, my favorite superhero was always the Hulk. And I really love the way they've done the Hulk in The Avengers movie. I think Mark Ruffalo is great as Bruce Banner. I think they finally represent him correctly in The Avengers movies compared to the other Hulk movies that they made before."

He also discusses the new season of The Walking Dead and says he "loved" the first episode. Anthrax were recently joined on stage by The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus.

Asked which horror movie scared him most as a kid, Ian insists he never got scared, although he loves the genre. "Horror doesn't scare me, real life scares me," he says. "My favorite horror movie of all time is John Carpenter's The Thing.

"As much as I love horror, I never really got scared. I started as young because my mum was a horror fan. As a really young kid I would watch horror movies that came on Saturday and Sunday mornings on TV in New York on a thing called Chiller Theatre and Creature Feature. I loved them so much, but they never really scared me." Read more and watch the clip here.
