Kevin Smith speaks out on Martin Scorsese’s criticism of Marvel movies


Robert Downey Jr then gave his recall on Scorcese's feedback, saying: "I'll repeat you the truth, I didn't question [the Marvel Cinematic Universe] to became what it grew to became and it's this very huge, multi-headed Hydra at this level".

When the actor informed the unnamed exec that his group was taking in the show before going on-air, the executive replied, "Who the f-k are you?"

As you might expect, Robert Downey Jr. doesn't feel insulted and isn't getting all riled up over Martin Scorsese's comments. Phoenix is hanging out there in a vacuum: he has a muddled scenario with no rounded character to play, just a bunch of hazy notions cobbled together from different movies, ultimately meant to forcefit themselves into a pre-existing mythology. "I think we would so love to have the era of Meg Ryan come back", she said. I tried, you know?

That seems like a odd reason to turn down a potential Oscar nom - anyone brought to tears by Iron Man's final moments can't argue that Downey doesn't deserves a nod - but whatever floats your boat. "When he sees those movies, he's like, 'That's a theme park.' When I see those movies, that is the closest I get to being with my dad at a movie theater again", said the filmmaker, who recounted weekly trips to as a child with his father to the cineplex, where they consumed the latest blockbusters. In an interview with "Empire" magazine, the Oscar-winning filmmaker indicated he wasn't a fan of the comic-book genre calling the movies "not cinema" and comparing them to "theme parks". "It isn't the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being".

Although he says Scorsese has a right to his opinion, Tony Stark said that it didn't make sense.

Erdogan added that Turkey "will preserve Syria's territorial integrity and liberate local communities from terrorists". He expected Turkey to protect civilians and religious minorities and to prevent a humanitarian crisis, he said.

Speaking to Howard Stern, he said: "I'm so glad you brought this up because there was some talk about it, and I said, 'Let's not'".

"Films are films. You know, everybody doesn't like his stuff either". Scorsese was immediately ripped for his remarks, with certain Marvel veterans like Joss Whedon and James Gunn coming out particularly strong. That much is fact, but a source also told the publication that Scorsese had also initially considered the film as a potential directing vehicle.

"I mean that's like saying Bugs Bunny ain't amusing". I mean, we happen to, but everybody doesn't. Big studios nearly always campaign their films and the stars of their films, because they figure they have nothing to lose. "Ain't likely to stop nobody from making films", Jackson told Variety.

Whatever Scorsese - who is poised to release new movie The Irishman via Netflix on 27 November - reckons, the MCU is the most successful franchise in cinema history.
