Martin Scorsese has given us film fanatics some of the greatest pieces of cinema of all-time, Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, along with many others. Recently, the legendary director has made some comments some have deemed as controversial as Scorsese has put forth his opinion that Marvel films are not cinema.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson has provided a rebuttle to Scorsese’s comments, and as you can read down below Jackson doesn’t agree with Scorsese. You can check out what he had to say below.
“Films are films. You know, everybody doesn’t like his stuff either. I mean, we happen to, but everybody doesn’t. There are a lot of Italian-Americans that don’t think he should be making films about them like that. Everybody’s got an opinion, so it’s okay. It’s not going to stop anyone from making movies.”

Personally, I also disagree with Mr. Scorsese, as I believe the two genres are both cinema, granted two very different types of cinema, but to exclude the Marvel films, or any comic book films for that matter, I think is asinine.
Jackson isn’t the only one to have expressed disagreement with Scorsese, as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has put in his two cents as well, along with Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
