Scorsese's Marvel Musings: Nanjiani Weighs In
In the glistening Hollywood universe, a battle of cosmic proportions has been unfolding. At its heart is film luminary Martin Scorsese and his stance on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Kumail Nanjiani, star of the cinematic spectacle "Eternals", recently dished his insights into this debate, as reported by Business Insider.
Icons in Isolation: Marvel vs. Masters
It was back in 2019 that Scorsese stirred the cinematic cauldron with his comments on the Marvel franchise, questioning its artistry. Reigniting the flame, Quentin Tarantino remarked that films today neglect the essence of actor-driven narratives.
Jumping into the fray, Nanjiani, in a candid chat with Esquire, expressed his admiration for both Scorsese and Tarantino. While not aligning with their views, he defended their prerogative to opine. "I may disagree with Scorsese's opinion on superhero movies, but I mean, who else has earned the right to have an opinion?" he remarked, throwing a rhetorical gauntlet.
And he didn't stop there. "If Scorsese hasn't earned the right to have an opinion on movies, then none of us should have an opinion on movies," Nanjiani declared, emphasizing Scorsese's legendary directorial dossier, spanning awards from Oscars to Emmys.
Marvel, Movies, & Modern Times
Amidst the swirling storm of criticism, Nanjiani pondered the perplexing public outrage. He found it "so strange that people get upset about" the MCU's critique. But his reflections extended beyond just Marvel musings.
A nostalgic Nanjiani lamented the bygone era of mature, budget-friendly movies featuring stalwart stars, gracing the big screens. Sharing insights on his 2017 hit, "The Big Sick", he mused how its success might have been elusive in the current cinema scape. In the age of omnipresent streaming, he opined that audiences selectively grace theaters, restricting their choices majorly to action and horror genres.
