It's been a whirlwind few weeks for the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) as it has been making headlines without even a movie releasing! Martin Scorses was recently questioned on his views regarding Marvel movies to which The Irishman director confessed that according to him, such films are like "theme parks" and "not cinema." Further supporting Martin's comment is The Godfather (1972) director Francis Ford Coppola. "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," Francis had shared via AFP.

Furthermore, adding fuel to the fire, Coppola added, "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." Not taking things lying down is fellow MCU actor Mark Ruffalo, who we know as the Hulk in movies like the recently released Avengers: Endgame. Taking to his Twitter account, Mark pointed out the generation gap between Ford and the MCU fanbase.

Ruffalo tweeted, "Back in the day, people thought rock 'n' roll and hip-hop weren't music and despicable too."

However, the tweet has since been deleted!
