Once once more, a Hollywood icon has panned Marvel motion pictures and, as soon as once more, James Gunn has spoken out in protection of them.
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” filmmaker responded in an Instagram put up Sunday to Francis Ford Coppola’s feedback on the Lumiere Festival in France this weekend. Coppola was requested whether or not he agreed with Martin Scorsese’s feedback that Marvel motion pictures weren’t cinema, and the “The Godfather” director mentioned partly, “Martin was kind when he said it’s not cinema. He didn’t say it’s despicable, which I just say it is.”
Gunn didn’t point out Scorsese or Coppola in his put up by title, however did reference the latter’s use of the phrase “despicable” when noting that superhero movies aren’t the primary populist style to obtain derision from extra inventive filmmakers.

Many of our grandfathers thought all gangster motion pictures have been the identical, typically calling them “despicable”. Some of our nice grandfathers thought the identical of westerns, and believed the movies of John Ford, Sam Peckinpah, and Sergio Leone have been all precisely the identical. I keep in mind a fantastic uncle to whom I used to be raving about Star Wars. He responded by saying, “I saw that when it was called 2001, and, boy, was it boring!” Superheroes are merely right this moment’s gangsters/cowboys/outer house adventurers. Some superhero movies are terrible, some are stunning. Like westerns and gangster motion pictures (and earlier than that, simply MOVIES), not everybody will be capable of admire them, even some geniuses. And that’s okay. ❤️
“Many of our grandfathers thought all gangster movies were the same, often calling them ‘despicable,’” Gunn wrote. “Some of our great grandfathers thought the same of westerns, and believed the films of John Ford, Sam Peckinpah, and Sergio Leone were all exactly the same.”
The “Guardians of the Galaxy” filmmaker famous that his nice uncle dismissed his excited response to “Star Wars” by evaluating the long-lasting blockbuster movie to Stanley Kubrick’s way more meditative “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which he known as “boring.”
“Superheroes are simply today’s gangsters/cowboys/outer space adventurers. Some superhero films are awful, some are beautiful. Like westerns and gangster movies (and before that, just MOVIES), not everyone will be able to appreciate them, even some geniuses. And that’s okay.”
Gunn is presently filming the DC movie “The Suicide Squad,” which might be launched by Warner Bros. in 2021. After that, he’s set to return to Marvel Studios to direct “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” which presently has no set launch date.
Coppola, in the meantime, is constant to work on “Megalopolis,” a utopian drama that he has been creating on-and-off for 20 years, and which he says would require a bigger finances than the infamously costly “Apocalypse Now.”
“I wanted to make a film about a human expression of what really is heaven on earth,” Coppola mentioned this weekend.
“I would say it’s the most ambitious film (I’ve worked on) — more than ‘Apocalypse Now’. That’s the problem.”
