Francis Ford Coppola Thinks Marvel Movies Are 'Despicable'

Martin Scorsese previously made headlines for his thoughts on Marvel movies and now his friend Francis Ford Coppola is defending him.

Scorsese previously said that the Marvel movies are “not cinema.” Coppola went even further with his comments and said that movies in the MCU are “despicable.”

“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,” Coppola said (via Yahoo). “Martin was kind when he said it’s not cinema. He didn’t say it’s despicable, which I just say it is.”

There has been a lot of conversation lately about how Marvel movies and other superhero movies are changing the movie theater business for good.

Francis Ford Coppola is not the only star to slam the Marvel movie franchise.
