Directing legend Francis Ford Coppola has thrown a chair into the film legends vs MCU death match, backing up Martin Scorsese. While speaking to journalists in the French city of Lyon, where he has just been awarded the Prix Lumiere, he was asked about Scorsese's previous comments on Marvel films. He responded with 'fuck them movies':
"When Martin Scorsese says that the Marvel pictures are not cinema, he's right because we expect to learn something from cinema, we expect to gain something, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration.
I don't know that anyone gets anything out of seeing the same movie over and over again. Martin was kind when he said it's not cinema. He didn't say it's despicable, which I just say it is."
MCU fans are predictably trashing Coppola and saying he doesn't understand movies.
