After Martin Scorsese, filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola has now criticised Marvel films. The director called MCU films ‘despicable’. Guardians of The Galaxy director James Gunn has reacted to Coppola’s comments.
In a long Instagram post, James Gunn has shared his thoughts on Marvel films and responded to Coppola. James wrote, “Many of our grandfathers thought all gangster movies were the same, often calling them “despicable”. Some of our great grandfathers thought the same of westerns, and believed the films of John Ford, Sam Peckinpah, and Sergio Leone were all exactly the same. I remember a great uncle to whom I was raving about Star Wars. He responded by saying, “I saw that when it was called 2001, and, boy, was it boring!” Superheroes are simply today’s gangsters/cowboys/outer space adventurers. Some superhero films are awful, some are beautiful. Like westerns and gangster movies (and before that, just MOVIES), not everyone will be able to appreciate them, even some geniuses. And that’s okay. ❤️”
He shared a picture of Groot and Rocket from the film with his response.
