Marvel Cinematic Universe has an enormous fan following all over the world. This year, MCU’s film Avengers: Endgame turned out to be one of the blockbusters in the world. A few days ago, Martin Scorsese criticised Marvel films. Now, filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola thinks Marvel films are despicable.
In an interview with Yahoo News, he said, “When Martin Scorsese says that the Marvel pictures are not cinema, he’s right because we expect to learn something from cinema, we expect to gain something, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration… I don’t know that anyone gets anything out of seeing the same movie over and over again.”
The veteran filmmaker added, “Martin was kind when he said it’s not cinema. He didn’t say it’s despicable, which I just say it is.”
Well, we wonder what the actors who have worked in Marvel films have to say about Francis Ford Coppola’s statement.
A few days ago, actor Robert Downey Jr who played the role of Iron Man in MCU films had reacted to Scorsese’s comments. He said, “’ll tell you the truth, I didn’t expect (MCU) to become what it became and it is this very large, multi-headed Hydra at this point. I’ve always had other interests, and according to Scorsese, it’s not cinema so I have to take a look at that, you know?”
