Wellp, it seems that Martin Scorsese is soon not softening his stance on Marvel films. The Irish director once again made his thoughts and feelings known about the effect that Marvel films (and films from their point of view) have on today's BFI London Film Festival on Sunday.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scorsese reiterated his earlier remarks about Marvel films during a press conference on The Irishman featuring two of the movie's stars, Robert De Niro and ] Al Pacino . During the press conference, Scorsese offered some new strong moods.
"This is not a movie, something else," Scorsese says during a press conference. "We don't have to be attacked by it. We need movie theaters to step up and show a movie." These are narrative films. "The director seems to be in tears, with this idea of Marvel films hitting the cinemas only one of the current few times when he broadcast his candid ideas on the subject. It is worth noting that Marvel films are also narrative films and probably not we should be so reducing, but what do I know?
THR also notes that Scorsese also repeated his comparison that Marvel movies are like theme parks during the annual BAFTA David Linn lecture The theme park lifestyle is expanded by Scorset because the theaters are now getting some warmth in addition to Marvel movies.
Theaters have become amusement parks. That's all good and good, but don't go into everything else. That's good and good for those who enjoy this type of movie and by the way, knowing what goes into it now, I admire what they do. It's not my kind, it's just not. It creates another type of audience that thinks that cinema is this .
Well, I'm really nervous that one of our greatest living directors has a fundamental misunderstanding of cinema. The concept of movie theaters as a place for celebration, life, excitement and a place to escape from the troubled everyday life is not a new concept. Movies have always been supreme (hello for 1939 The Wizard of Oz ) and have always been a medium pushing technological boundaries and commenting on these innovations (over time in 19659003) a Hugo ] movie, directed by … Scorsese!). Head of Marvel Studios Kevin Fage and his team not only invent it and use their films to change everything completely.
It is difficult to say what triggered these comments by Scorsese and would be wrong to speculate. However, it is discouraging to see a director being pushed so much into the corner of the market, which, of course, changes the appearance of cinema, but in any case does not pose such a great threat to other types of films that it should be completely ignored.
Previous Scorsese comments have elicited reactions from MCU members James Gunn and Samuel L. Jackson and it's worth checking if you want to know more.
