Legendary director Martin Scorsese has created a whole series of controversies in recent months after sharing his opinion that Marvel superhero movies are “not cinema”. And, for the holiday season, her 20-year-old daughter Francesca decided to have fun wrapping all of her gifts in Marvel wrapping paper.
Francesca went to Instagram on Christmas Eve to share a photo of her gift wrapping session that included Marvel wrapping paper with Captain America, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man and Thor.
In October, Scorsese told Empire Magazine that he didn’t watch Marvel movies, but he made an attempt.
“But it’s not cinema,” said Scorsese, 77. “Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as good as they are, to actors doing their best under the circumstances, these are the theme parks. It is not the cinema of human beings trying to transmit emotional and psychological experiences to another human being. “
After these comments sparked controversy, Scorsese wrote an opinion piece for the New York Times a month later to explain his statement.
Scorsese wrote that the people who make Marvel films have “considerable talent and talent,” which is evident on the screen. And, the fact that the films themselves don’t interest him is a matter of personal taste.
He went on to write that if he was younger, it is possible that the Marvel movies would excite him and he would want to make one himself. But, he grew up when he did and he developed a sense of cinema – of what they were and what they could be. Scorsese said that what he learned was “as far removed from the Marvel universe as we are on Alpha Centauri Earth.
Even though Scorsese isn’t a fan, Marvel movies have grossed billions at the box office over the past decade, including this year’s Avengers: Endgame, which broke all book records by totaling 357.1 million dollars during its opening weekend before bringing in $ 2,779. billions in the world throughout its course in theater.
Scorsese is doing very well without making superhero films, as his latest film The Irishman was a success for Netflix. He also has many projects in the works, including the next biopic Killers of the Flower Moon, on the life of President Theodore Roosevelt.
Martin Scorsese is also attached to the new Hulu series The Devil in the White City with Leonardo DiCaprio.
