Scorcese's comments are no different than jazz musicians claiming other genre's pollute the artform. This insistence that different looks can't exist within the same ecosystem is just nuts... movie goers are not monolithic drones that are turned off by a certain genre simply because something new & shiny shows up, and these legends make themselves look like relics when they think otherwise.

At the end of the day Scorcese comments were right.
Most of those Marvel movies are filmed in front of a green screen which is not real cinema.
Those Marvel movies are still good as fu*k tho but I don't see why people are so concerned what Marty has to say.
Marty is one of the few that can criticize Marvel.

Meat & Comic Book movies. The two things you never bring up unless you want to start a riot.

Sad.

Scorseseís comments represent someone that loves cinema and is disappointed by the MCU, just like many others are disappointed with DCEU films.

Idk why people are still talking about this manís opinion 5 days later.

When did scorsese say they shouldnt be allowed to make comic book movies?

Theyre simple movies for simple people, and theyre entertainment as opposed to art. Thats all. Nobody is really trying to say they shouldnt be allowed to make them

Green screens??? Cmon thats not a good argument point at all

Because Martin is trying to generalize. Comments like his do have weight. All the people claiming its his opinion n its should effect us have it wrong...

Nbody even comic book heads is saying hewack or not great. Legendary

But he knows he speaking from an oceam away. He will never try that genre. Thays the bad thing about it.

Martin movis will NEVER be on a scale like the Mcu. I dont like theMcu but the point of the comics is very deep n well written.

Dont let someone drop that live action Red hood. Or Justice League Metal.

Cause people keep saying all that ADULT HUMOR N GRAOHIC SITUATIONS is too much.

I bet his comment was motivated by the ludcirous addition of BP to best movie at the Oscars last year.

Not real cinema to you....Iím not saying it is or it isnít but since Martin Sorcase didnít create cinema I would say he canít define it..itís his opinion and heís entitled to that...

Lmao why people so butthurt yes avengers is a film but like Martin Scorsese who is Italian and make films as a artwork which is consistent with European films that are made to show real people within their daily lives so I can almost guarantee that their are legendary filmmakers who agree with him same people sh*tting on what he said are the same ones that consider the last 4 fast and furious films artwork or good films

That's bullsh*t because the irishman was filmed using a green screen, cgi and everything else he despised. Scorcese is a one dimentional director coming across with hypocritical statements. All but 3 films that he did are about either mafia like ties that isn't all the way factual or actual gangsters in semi fictitious situations. People creating excuses is either looking for work from him or worse case protecting some of these pedophiles in Hollywood that back him. It is quite dumb that the original point of theater and film is to escape reality and enjoy the ride like a theme park not watch a boring book come to life and be bored to tears but there is an audience for bordem as well.

I think he meant it in terms of SUBSTANCE. Let’s face it, Marvel movies are more about the spectacle than deep character/time period studies. So Scorsese wasn’t necessarily wrong but movies are movies. Either way, gotta love RDJ.

Nah itís not..I think the point is the movies are episodic..one leads to the other...yes there is one overall compelling story in there, but itís a lot of mediocre vehicles sprinkled in there to push the over arching narrative..plus letís be real...iron man became Audi, Coke, and toy commercials by the end..they not true cinema..they they own thing..cuz we all know a great piece of cinema shuts in most comic movies..

Hilarious thing about Martin and Comic Book movies is that “Joker” is pretty much the type of film he would make if given a chance to make an adaptation of that character.

Joker is being viewed in the same light as Taxi Driver & King of Comedy. The timing of his comments couldn’t have been more perfect because now we have a discussion that shows you can do both.

How is it not visual art in the highest form? With all the CGI and green scene at times seemless so flawlessly you donít even really get caught up in it

How is that Avatar is consider art but Infinity wars isnít?

Both used mainly cgi and green screen, so how do they differ? Avatar was a one off, original screen play (if Iím not mistaken)

But Infinity wars was...I mean we all know the movie and comic book history and implications..

Plus the acting done by the actors, to really put heart and feeling into these roles, mind you they doing this with half of set not physically their. Now thatís actions.

And for the hell of it, what about captain American winter soldier? Damn there no cgi, and if not these what, top 2 of the best films in the mcu, you wonít call that a great spy movie?
