Robert Downey Jr. responds to Martin Scorsese's comments about 'Marvel' movies

Obviously, my thoughts on the matter are pretty clear (he's allowed his opinion, but given that he doesn't watch the films, his opinions shouldn't be taken seriously), and there have been others like Karen Gillan and Sam Jackson who have said their piece on the matter.

Legendary director Martin Scorsese, who's preparing to release his highly anticipated mob flick The Irishman in theaters and on Netflix, made waves last week in an interview with comments appearing to denigrate Marvel's superhero movies - in a way that's still resonating days after the fact.

"Because it's his opinion".

Recently, Disney revealed their For Your Consideration page for Avengers: Endgame, and there was a curious omission from the list of potential nominees: Robert Downey Jr. "We need all of the different perspectives so we can come to center and move on".

Disney has high hopes for Avengers: Endgame at the Oscars, but Robert Downey Jr. isn't suggested for a nomination.

However, for Downey, to say the blockbuster films aren't cinema "would be like saying Howard Stern isn't radio". It doesn't make sense.

Downey Jr added: "When you come in like a stomping beast and you eliminate the competition in such a demonstrative way, it's phenomenal". In his mind, Martin Scorsese, like anyone else, is entitled to his opinion and that extends to Marvel and superhero movies.

She went down to her knees for a loose ball just over five minutes into the game, was subbed out, and went straight to the tunnel. Jonquel Jones converted a 3-point play to open the third quarter and cut the lead to 1, but that was as close as CT would get.

Downey Jr. responded to Scorsese's comments during an appearance on a show. Just hit the buttons on the top of this page. " Downey Jr. said before switching his gaze to co-host Robin Quivers, changing the subject - and agreeing to disagree with Stern on a host of topics". Check it out by listening below.

Since then, Samuel L. Jackson, and directors James Gunn and Joss Whedon have all defended the movie series.

He continued: "Of course not, he's Martin Scorsese".

"I don't see them", Scorsese, 76, responded. I mean, that is a profound performance, when you can touch audiences all over the world to that degree. There are a lot of Italian-Americans that don't think he should be making films about them like that.

Downey did make some allowance for the point of view that comic-book and genre movies have taken up a remarkable share of the overall movie experience.

She also answered whether or not she fell into the same way of thinking about film as Scorsese as she said: 'I would absolutely say that Marvel movies are cinema.
