Chris Hemsworth returns criticism of Scorsese and Coppola about superhero films: ‘They kept people in theaters’

The actor plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films

Chris Hemsworth confessed that he was upset by statements made by some directors about the films of Marvel Cinematic Universe. In an interview with The Times of London (via Variety), Thor’s interpreter recalled comments made by Martin Scorsese It is Francis Ford Coppola: “It was hard and it bothers me, especially coming from [diretores que considero como] heroes.”

“It was an eye roll for me, people criticizing the superhero space,” he continued. “These guys have movies that didn’t work either — we all do. When they talked about what was wrong with superheroes, I thought, ‘Cool, tell that to the billions who watch them. Were they all wrong?'”

Scorsese criticized superhero films in 2019 when he told the magazine Empire (via IndieWire): “I don’t watch those movies. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of to them, as well-made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, are theme parks It’s not the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

Coppola agreed with the filmmaker and stated in 2022, in an interview with GQ (via Variety), that “there used to be studio films. Now there are Marvel. And what is a film? Marvel? A film from Marvel It’s a prototype that’s made once and again and again and again to look different.”

In contrast, Hemsworth assured that superhero films deserve more “appreciation”. “Moviegoing didn’t change because of superheroes, it changed because of smartphones and social media. In fact, superhero movies kept people in theaters during this transition and now people are coming back So, they deserve a little more appreciation”, he pointed out.

“If I went back to [Thor], I would wonder how we could change it again. But there’s a curse of superheroes in that you get pigeonholed, and I felt a little limited in what I could do, so [eu] I desperately wanted something to scare me. AND Angry did that”, continued the actor, who is in the cast of Angrydirected by George Miller.
