Los Angeles: Martin Scorsese may have been critical about superhero movies but that didn’t deter his daughter Francesca Scorsese from pulling a little Marvel-themed prank on him.
Francesca, 19, playfully trolled her father as she shared a photo of the Avengers-themed wrapping paper she is using for her Scorsese’s gifts.
“Look what I’m wrapping my dad’s XMas gifts in,” she captioned the photo posted on her Instagram story.
The veteran filmmaker had recently started a debate around Marvel movies after he branded them as ‘theme park experience’ and ‘not cinema’.
“I don’t see them. I tried, you know? But that’s not cinema. Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks,” the filmmaker told Empire.
He later elaborated on his comment in a New York Times op-ed, saying he was not questioning the talent of the people behind superhero films but the absence of ‘revelation, mystery or genuine emotional danger’ in the movies.
