”Joker” director: I understand Scorsese criticism of comic book films
“Joker” filmmaker Todd Phillips has given legendary Hollywood filmmaker Martin Scorsese a pass on what he said about comic book movie blockbusters, saying he understood what he was trying to say.
Scorsese recently took a jibe at Marvel movies, saying these efforts were “not cinema”.
Phillips accepts his fellow filmmaker was making a fair point, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Joining Scorsese for The Hollywood Reporter’s directors roundtable chat, Phillips said: “Marty got a lot of heat for that (what he said), but I understand it fully. We were struggling to get ”Joker” made, which sounds funny because it exists in the superhero world, but it”s really not one of those movies.”
