Martin Scorsese is one of cinema’s most influential and revered filmmakers. He has given films like Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Shutter Island, and many more. The filmmaker recently criticized Marvel films and shared his thoughts on comic book moviemaking.

Upon the debut of his latest epic historical film, The Killers of the Flower Moon, the revered figure of cinema found himself facing inquiries about the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Although he has been known to offer critiques of the film industry that he once helped shape, this marks the first time he openly mentioned Marvel by name. Notably, a high-ranking Marvel executive has now responded to his criticism.

Martin Scorsese has once again ignited the ire of comic book enthusiasts by reiterating his critique of comic book movies, labeling them a threat to the cinematic art form. In response to the legendary filmmaker’s controversial remarks, Kevin Wright, a Marvel executive and producer of Loki, staunchly defended the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

During a conversation with Geeks of Color, Wright said, “[‘Loki’] is being built with a lot of love and care and an eye for the cinematic. Any of these shows, movies, or anything in this world is about making a character-focused story that audiences can connect with. I would challenge anyone watching to say that [this show] is not cinematic, and it’s not built with the highest craftsmanship and care.”

Kevin Wright further said, “Frankly, people just want to see good stories. If you build something beautiful, [the audience is] going to enjoy it, whether it’s a show like this, or an indie film.”

As for Martin Scorsese referring to comic book fare as a “danger” to culture, Marvel executive and Loki producer said, “The danger there is what it’s doing to our culture. Because there are going to be generations now that think movies are only those—that’s what movies are. They already think that. Which means that we have to then fight back stronger. And it’s got to come from the grassroots level. It’s gotta come from the filmmakers themselves. And you’ll have, you know, the Safdie brothers, and you’ll have Chris Nolan, you know what I mean? And hit ’em from all sides. Hit ’em from all sides, and don’t give up. Let’s see what you got. Go out there and do it. Go reinvent. Don’t complain about it. But it’s true because we’ve got to save the cinema. I do think that the manufactured content isn’t really cinema.”
