Debate on whether Marvel movies even count as pieces of cinema
(KUSI) – Martin Scorsese’s recently attacked Marvel movies calling them “not cinema.” At a recent press conference in France, Francis Ford Coppola said he agreed with Scorsese calling the popular superhero films “the same movie over and over again” and “despicable.”
The debate began earlier this month when Scorsese was interviewed by Empire Magazine and said that he couldn’t sit through a Marvel movie.
James Gunn, who directed Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2, posted about Scorsese and Coppola’s remarks on his Instagram.
On Saturday, Natalie Portman who appeared in Thor 1 and 2 told The Hollywood Reporter that she thinks there’s room for all types of cinema. “I think that Marvel films are so popular because they’re really entertaining and people desire entertainment when they have their special time after work, after dealing with their hardships in real life,” said Portman
