Martin Scorsese, the Oscar-winning filmmaker, has made some harsh comments against Marvel movies. Several artists have responded to the criticism by Scorsese. Another big artist that joined the bandwagon is Samuel L. Jackson.
Martin’s comments on Marvel movies
Martin Scorsese expressed his opinion on the Marvel Movies in an interview with Empire Magazine. He said that he doesn’t watch them and that he doesn’t think that these movies are real cinema. According to him, the movies are theme parks at best. He thinks that Marvel movies are not “cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.” James Gunn expressed his sadness that the Oscar-winning filmmaker was judging his movies without even watching them. Joss Whedon, Peter Ramsey, and Leigh Whannell are some othe writers and directors who have responded to the comments of Scorsese. The opinion of Scorsese caused such a stir because he is an honored filmmaker who has great work to his credit. However, he is not the first one to hold such an opinion. In the past, Jodie Foster and James Cameron have also held their own similar opinions.
Samuel L. Jackson expresses his sentiments
Samuel L. Jackson is one of the first actors to have joined the MCU. He has been a part of the MCU since its first movie. He played a role in all four blockbuster Avengers movies. Here is what he had to say:
“I mean that’s like saying Bugs Bunny ain’t funny. Films are films. Everybody doesn’t like his stuff either. Everybody’s got an opinion, so I mean it’s okay. Ain’t going to stop nobody from making movies.”
People at Marvel are maintaining their stance that the movies must not be dismissed in such a flippant manner.
