Sebastian Stan Reacts to Francis Ford Coppola Saying Marvel Movies Are 'Despicable'

Sebastian Stan is defending Marvel.

During a panel at the 2019 Fandemic Tour on Sunday afternoon (October 20) in Houston, Texas, the 37-year-old actor defended the superhero movies after director Francis Ford Coppola said Marvel movies were “despicable.”

“He’s one of my heroes and I was listening to him and meanwhile, I just spent the day with all of you,” Sebastian shared (via Comic Book). “People have been going up to me like ‘Thank you so much for this character,’ ‘This movie helped me out so much,’ ‘This movie inspired me. Now I feel better. Now I feel less alone,’ so how can you say these movies are not helping people?”

Martin Scorsese recently criticized Marvel movies saying they were “not cinema” and Francis defended his friend saying, “he’s right because we expect to learn something from cinema, we expect to gain something, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration.” There are numerous other stars who have also slammed Marvel.
