Earlier, Martin Scorsese expressed his disdain for that, saying that the films of one of the biggest franchises are not cinema. While some people agreed with his comments, many MCU fans think otherwise. Now Coppola has something to say about the franchise.
Speaking to GQ, Francis Ford Coppola, the acclaimed filmmaker says the MCU makes the same kind of movies and ruins studio movies like Dune and No Time To Die. “There used to be studio films. Now there are Marvel pictures. And what is a Marvel picture? A Marvel picture is a prototype film that is made over and over and over again to look different,” he said.
“Even the talented people – you could take Dune, created by Denis Villeneuve, an extremely talented, gifted artist, and you could take No Time to Die, directed by… Gary? Cary Fukunaga – extraordinarily gifted, talented, beautiful artists, and you could take both movies, and you and I could take the same series from both and put them together,” Francis Ford Coppola added while doing Marvel.
Several people have pointed to the same thing, but the MCU is now expanding its horizons, especially since the start of Phase 4. The film not only features its first s*x scene, but also showed an openly gay superhero in Eternals.
Marvel has also stretched its hands east in Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings and has included martial arts in the film. While Francis Ford Coppola isn’t wrong to say that the films are similar, the films have an element that draws in viewers more and more.
