The harsh criticism that Martin Scorsese He made Marvel more than three years ago and it’s still kicking. The filmmaker himself clarified his position shortly after and since then he has received several replies, from Tom Holland stating that that studio’s films “they are true art” until simu liu highlighting that if it were for Scorsese he would never have been able to lead a blockbuster. Well, it seems that they have convinced him, since Scorsese has just signed for Marvel.
“A transgressive evolution of the seventh art”
The director himself has recognized that during this time he has reflected a lot on the matter, especially as a result of certain comments received in the videos that he has starred in with his daughter for TikTok. That has led him to give Marvel cinema a new opportunity and this time his impressions are very different:
I was very wrong. Superhero movies are the superior way of making movies, a transgressive evolution of the seventh art that allows us to explore the human condition beyond what has been seen up to now. That was what I didn’t understand, but these types of characters are as complex as those in the best works of John Ford or Alfred Hitchcock.
The great director of ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ has also revealed that it was Marvel’s Phase 4 that has managed to change his opinion and that ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'”He made me cry from minute 1 of the movieAlso, ‘She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk’ became her new favorite series, stating that “I haven’t laughed so much since the best Billy Wilder movies“.
Obviously, at Marvel they couldn’t pass up an opportunity like this, since a signing of this caliber will make many viewers reluctant to see their films want to give them a second chance. In fact, Kevin Feige has stated the following in this regard:
We want the new public to arrive through Martin Scorsese and stay with us forever. We don’t care what movie he makes and how much money we lose on it. We are even considering renaming Phase 7 as the Scorsese Phase.
And it is that Marvel has had to have everything closed for a long time for the next two Phases of its superhero universe, so everything indicates that we will not see the film directed by Scorsese until 2027 as soon. By then he will already be 85 years old, but hey, Ridley Scott plans to shoot ‘Gladiator 2’ at that same age…
