The Marvel Cinematic Universe has received some criticism lately, most notably from legendary director Martin Scorsese. When asked about superhero films in an interview with Empire earlier this month, Scorsese explained that he isn't a fan.
"I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being."
He doubled down at the BFI London Film Festival while promoting The Irishman.
"It’s not cinema, it’s something else. We shouldn’t be invaded by it. We need cinemas to step up and show films that are narrative films."
