“Marvel movies are pathetic”: The next master-director hands out – and James Gunn counters!
even still have something to do comic book movies such as Marvel with cinema? The recently wondered Martin Scorsese, who so lostrat a heated debate. Now also “Godfather” -Macher Francis Ford Coppola and James Gunn expressed ( “GOTG”) to do so.
With the statement, the adventures of superheroes like Iron Man and Co. did not have much to do with cinema, but would rather reminiscent of amusement parks, made legendary director Martin Scorsese ( “The Departed”) recently stir. Not only many movie fans finally commented on his statement, more and more Hollywood stars give their two cents.
Martin Scorsese: “Marvel movies have nothing to do with cinema”
While about Robert Downey Jr. and Samuel L. Jackson take sides for their Marvel Adventure, Scorsese now receives support from another great filmmakers of the 20th century: Francis Ford Coppola goes one step further and called superhero movies now even as pathetic.

Backing for Martin Scorsese
“Martin was nice when he said it would be no cinema. He did not say that it is pathetic that I hereby do, “said the director of masterpieces such as” Apocalypse Now “and the” Godfather “trilogy on the Lumiere Festival in Lyon, where he received an award. He took the opportunity to clarify what he did not understand in terms of the superhero hype:
At the same time, he also made it clear that it at that, strictly speaking not a question that the films per se are bad, but they are simply not meet the expectations that he and Scorsese to a movie: “We expect from the cinema something to learn, to experience a kind of enlightenment, knowledge and inspiration. “All this seems to have lost him to the comic film wave in the course.
But not everybody goes with these expectations in a movie. And apart from the cinema and the art is constantly changing in general – that knows “Guardians Of The Galaxy” director James Gunn, who now spoke up.
Super Heroes: The new gangsters or cowboys?
Gunn shared his thoughts via Twitter, referring, in a similar genre trends from the past that were not always popular:
“Many of our grandfathers also found that all gangster movies were the same, they often found even pathetic, ‘” says Gunn, who is also called the Western by John Ford, Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone in the same breath the same. Because at the time these classics were also considered by many to be “equal”.
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. ❤️

but does not want to rail against the directorial legends Gunn. He also knew that there were terrible and wonderful superhero films, but ultimately not everyone – appreciates – even some genius in all about movies. “And that’s okay.”
Even Marvel Actress Natalie Portman, whose Jane Foster in “Thor 4: Love And Thunder” to become the female Thor, defended the comic blockbuster (as expected). “I think there is room for all kinds of cinema,” she told the Hollywood Reporter. “I think Marvel movies are so popular because they entertain and the people after a hard working day on which they had to deal with their real problems, want just that.”
