Martin Scorsese taking a swipe at the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a pop culture juggernaut that will probably swallow all of Hollywood at some point, has become a topic of major discussion in the film world. Director Martin Scorsese kicked off the trend, claiming that Marvel movies "are not cinema."
"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."
