Iron Man director Jon Favreau had a great response to Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola’s recent criticism of Marvel films.
Marvel Studios continues to dominate the box office year in and year out, which all started with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man back in 2008. Martin Scorsese broke the internet when he recently stated that he believes Marvel films should not be considered “cinema.” Martin Scorsese was later backed by The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola.
Many Marvel filmmakers such as James Gunn and Taika Waititi have weighted in on what legendary filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have said. One of the founding members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jon Favreau, is currently promoting his upcoming Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. In a recent interview with CNBC, Jon Favreau was the latest Marvel filmmaker to be asked what he thought of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola’s recent comments:
“These two guys are my heroes, and they have earned the right to express their opinions. I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing if they didn’t carve the way. They served as a source of inspiration, you can go all the way back to Swingers. They can express whatever opinion they like.”

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte. The series was written by Jon Favreau, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist is also on board as a co-executive producer.
