Avengers: Endgame filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo have finally broken their silence on the Martin Scorsese-Marvel controversy. The Russo brothers, who have worked on four Marvel Cinematic Universe movies as directors, weighed in on Scorsese's comments that superhero films were "theme park experience" and "not cinema."

Referring to cinema as a community experience, Joe shared that the box-office returns of their films is not just a measure of financial success but about the impact on audiences around the world.

Earlier, Scorsese had said that he has not seen the MCU films. The Russo brothers felt that it was not possible to have a dialogue about cinema if Scorsese had not seen the films.

"But, at the end of the day, what do we know?" Joe joked. "We're just two guys from Cleveland, Ohio, and 'cinema' is a New York word. In Cleveland, we call them movies," he said, in an interview to Hollywood Reporter, as he took a dig at Scorsese's New York roots.

Anthony added no one owned cinema, not even the illustrious filmmaker. "The other way to think about it, too, is nobody owns cinema. We don't own cinema. You don't own cinema. Scorsese doesn't own cinema," he said.
