With Disney+ increasing the Marvel empire into the realm of digital short-form content, I have been doing a lot of research into the happenings in the House of Mouse. One interesting debate that caught my eye is a wave of some of modern day cinematic auteurs bashing on Marvel films. From Scorsese’s comparison to “cinematic amusement parks” to Francis Ford Coppola calling them “despicable”, the Marvel films have not been given any slack. As a consumer a bit tired of Marvel domination, it has me wondering whether these auteurs are right in calling it a new art form in and of itself separate from cinema or they are just too old for the modern times. Would love to here all of your thoughts on this issue!
