The club of directors who criticize Marvel’s formula for filmmaking is increasing more and more. This time it is director Francis Ford Coppola who attacked not only Marvel movies like spider-manbut also against others such as dunes and no time to die. According to the filmmaker, these films lack personality. We could join the sequence of one or the other to reach the same result.
Previously Martin Scorsese had also complained about Marvel movies. For the director of the infiltrators, Marvel movies are just like another game in an amusement park. Now it is Coppola who has the microphones in front with the reason for the re-release of The Godfather in movie theaters. That was when it referred to the topic.
“Before there were studio movies,” he said. “Now there are Marvel movies. And what is a Marvel movie? A Marvel movie is a prototype that is replicated over and over and over and over to make it look different.”
However, the director did not stop there and lashed out at other blockbusters recent. The big hits were Warner’s 10-time Oscar-nominated space epic and the latest James Bond adventure.
“Even talented people — you can take Dunemade by Denis Villeneuve, a gifted and extremely talented artist, orno time to die, directed by… Gary?” the filmmaker asked until someone. more told him the correct name of the director. Cary Fukunaga [corrige]. You can take those two movies, by extremely beautiful, gifted and talented artists, and take the same scene from both of them and put them together. The same sequence with cars colliding. Both have scenes like that, and it has to be that way, to justify their budget. And those are the good movies, the talented directors.”
Francis Ford Coppola is the recognized director of the trilogy The Godfather and the classic war movie Apocalypse Now. However, he is also remembered as one of the club of pioneering filmmakers who shaped today’s film industry. They themselves redefined the true meaning of the word block buster.
The aforementioned club is made up of legends such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. The latter in the same way, a faithful enemy of Marvel and his power within the industry. However, it has also been others like Roland Emmerich who have spoken out against the great franchise of movies adapted from comics.
“Oh yeah. Because naturally Marvel and DC Comics, and Star Wars, have pretty much taken over,” he explained. “They’re screwing up our industry a little bit, because nobody does anything original anymore.”
Do you think these directors are right?
