In the ongoing debate over the course of Marvel movies where many actors had critisized Marvel movies Benedict Cumberbatch is the latest to join the movement.
Benedict is in full support of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola’s criticism of the franchise.
The star says that he “agrees” with the pair of directors, and that there should not be “one king to rule it all” in the film industry.
Scorsese began a war of words as of late when he said that Marvel movies were “not film”, while Coppola went much further, calling the movies “abominable” and in any event, saying that Scorsese was “kind” in his judgment of the movies.
Cumberbatch talked about the discussion saying: “I know there’s been a great deal of discussion as of late with some exceptionally fine producers going to the fore saying these film establishments are taking over everything.
“I agree,” he proceeded. “We don’t need one ruler to govern everything and have a restraining infrastructure and all that, and it’s ideally not the case and we should investigate proceeding to help auteur movie producers at each level.”
Cumberbatch follows the likes of Iron Man director Jon Favreau in criticising Marvel, after the director said that Scorsese and Coppola have “earned the right” to criticise the franchise.
Many have guarded Marvel in the wake of the remarks, however, including executives Taika Waititi and James Gunn.
