James Cameron critiqued the movie making of Marvel and DC

In an interview with The New York Times that was published on Tuesday, the three-time Oscar winner James Cameron criticised the Marvel and DC studiosstorytelling.

“When I look at these big, spectacular films I’m looking at you, Marvel and DC it doesn’t matter how old the characters are, they all act like they’re in college,” he said. “They have relationships, but they really don’t. They never hang up their spurs because of their kids. The things that really ground us and give us power, love, and a purpose? Those characters don’t experience it, and I think that’s not the way to make movies.”

 “I don’t see [Marvel films]. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema,” Scorsese in 2019 “Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

Coppola was among many who supported Scorsese at the time, despite the fact that filmmakers like James Gunn disagreed with his outlook.

“When Martin Scorsese says that the Marvel pictures are not cinema, he’s right, because we expect to learn something from cinema, we expect to gain something, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration,” said Coppola while in France to accept the Prix Lumiere for his contributions to cinema. “I don’t know that anyone gets anything out of seeing the same movie over and over again. Martin was kind when he said it’s not cinema. He didn’t say it’s despicable, which I just say it is.”
