Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, the most successful producer in Hollywood history, addresses Scorsese’s comments about the Marvel Cinematic Universe not being cinema.
For over a month, Film Twitter has obsessed over Martin Scorsese’s comments about Marvel movies not being cinema — along with The Irishman director’s recent New York Times op-ed further explaining his problematic position. Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has finally spoken out about the Oscar-winners divisive opinions on his and Marvel’s historic output of blockbusters. While interviewed for The Hollywood Reporter‘s “Awards Chatter” podcast, Feige disagrees with the Oscar-winning director’s assessments:
“I think that’s not true. I think it’s unfortunate … I think myself and everyone who works on these movies loves cinema, loves movies, loves going to the movies, loves to watch a communal experience in a movie theater full of people.”
