Marvel star Natalie Portman and director James Gunn defend MCU films from criticism


James Gunn leapt into Marvel's defense once again after Francis Ford Coppola branded "despicable" superhero films.

Coppola, director of The Godfather is Apocalypse Now, joined forces with Martin Scorsese to criticize the Marvel film universe. According to a report in Agence France-Presse, he said: "When (he) says that the images of Marvel are not cinema, he is right because we expect to learn something from the cinema, we expect to get something, an illumination, a knowledge, an inspiration ".

He added: "Martin was kind when he said it is not the cinema. He did not say that it is despicable, that I only say that it is."

While Guardians of the Galaxy director Gunn received a negative reaction to his criticism of Scorsese's initial comments, he spoke again in an Instagram post that says "many of our grandparents thought that all gangster moves" were not very good.

"Some of our great-grandparents thought the same about westerns and believed that the films of John Ford, Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone were all exactly the same. I remember a great uncle I was raving about Star Wars. He replied by saying: "I saw that when it was called 2001, and, boy, it was boring!" Superheroes are simply the gangsters / cowboys / adventurers in today's space, "wrote Gunn.

He continued: "Some superhero films are terrible, others are beautiful. Like westerns and gangsters (and before that, only FILM), not everyone will be able to appreciate them, even some genes. Alright then. "

Natalie Portman, who will play a female superhero Thor: Love and Thunder, He also defended the Marvel films among the new criticisms.

"I think there is room for all types of cinema," he told the LA Dance Project's sixth annual gala in Los Angeles, adding "It's not a way to make art."
