Kevin Smith Defends Comic Book Films; Argues Scorsese Made "Biggest Superhero Movie Ever"

Smith, a well-known comic book fan, who’s worked on a few film and TV adaptations, was aware of the recent jabs Martin Scorsese threw at Marvel movies — and he took offense, both personally and on behalf of fandom, he told The Hollywood Reporter

“Martin Scorsese is a genius. But to be fair, my entire film career — even prior to my film career — he’s been pretty much saying the same thing about action movies,” Smith told THR outside the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Scorsese made headlines weeks back when he told Empire that Marvel Studios films are, in his opinion, “not cinema.” The Oscar-winning director proceeded to double-down on the comment shortly thereafter and said at the BFI London Film Festival, “It’s not cinema, it’s something else. We shouldn’t be invaded by it. We need cinemas to step up and show films that are narrative films.”

There was immediate backlash to all the comments both from fans, but also actors and filmmakers who have worked on Marvel films.
