In response to acclaimed director Martin Scorsese’s criticism that Marvel’s film “is not a movie, it’s a theme park,” “Avengers 4” screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely responded for the first time on the red carpet at the Academy Awards for Lifetime Achievement, contradicting Scorsese’s comments and strongly championing Marvel’s film.
“Everyone has their own opinion,” Markus said, “and obviously the movie, “Avengers 4″, has affected a lot of people and pleased a lot of people, and I have to say, in a way, there hasn’t been such a movie for a long time.” If it’s not a movie, I don’t know what it is. It’s a global collective emotional experience. McFeely agrees, saying that Hollywood is inclusive of all kinds of people, “and all kinds of movies are suitable for all kinds of people.” The film is aimed at a large audience. “
Martin Scorsese’s criticism first appeared in an interview with Empire magazine, where he said the Marvel movie was not part of the film: “I tried to see it, you know? But it’s not a movie,” he said. “To be honest, the closest thing I can think of is the theme park, and even though they’re well-made and the actors do their best in this situation, it’s not a movie that tries to convey emotional and psychological experience stos to the audience.” “
Recently, Scorsese also responded to the “Marvel Movie is a theme park” remark, he explained, “A family to a theme park, which is a good thing.” In this theme park, there are many ways of expressing movies, and this is a new art form. But at the end of the day, it’s a far cry from the movies of today… It’s also a great experience to go to thetheme parks, but don’t say Greta Gerwig, Paul Thomas Anderson or Noah Baumbach are part of the park, and they’re all being squeezed out. “
“Avengers 4” has grossed $2.79 billion worldwide, beating Avatar to become the world’s highest-grossing film of all time, but the criticism of Marvel’s film, launched by Martin Scorsese, continues, with the film’s bombshell and “The Godfather” director Coppola, and British director Ken. Rocky, etc.
