If you're a critic of the superhero genre — or Marvel movies, in particular — it would seem October is as good of a month as any to voice your distaste. Acclaimed filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have each spoken out against the blockbuster films, with the latter of two going the length to call Marvel films despicable. "I don't know that anyone gets anything out of seeing the same movie over and over again," Coppola recently told French reporters. "Martin was kind when he said it's not cinema. He didn't say it's despicable, which I just say it is."
Suffice to say, Marvel fans haven't been thrilled with the latest comments. Keep scrolling to see some of the best responses from Marvel fans regarding the topic. What are your thoughts on the situation? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

So Francis Ford Coppola is siding with all the jealous directors that want to trash #Marvel movies. Envious much? Let's do something, I'll ban in my household the Scorcese. Cameron and Coppola's films and I'll convince my friends to do the same. Jerks! pic.twitter.com/thsMMmzATJ— Lily (@Lily_Rosse7) October 20, 2019
