"I mean that's like saying Bugs Bunny ain't funny. Films are films. Everybody doesn't like his stuff either. I mean, we happen to, but everybody doesn't," Jackson said

In a recent interview, legendary director Martin Scorsese let the world know that he thinks Marvel movies aren’t cinema. Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the MCU responded to Scorsese's comments

At a recent event, the Avengers: Endgame star was asked if he’d heard about Scorsese’s comment on Marvel movies.  Jackson, who seemed pretty upset by the comment, made sure to point out not everyone happens to be a fan of all things Scorsese either.

"I mean that's like saying Bugs Bunny ain't funny. Films are films. Everybody doesn't like his stuff either. I mean, we happen to, but everybody doesn't," Jackson said

"Everybody's got an opinion, so I mean it's okay. Ain't going to stop nobody from making movies," Jackson added.

Scorsese had dismissed the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as "not cinema" during an interview while promoting his upcoming movie The Irishman. On being asked if he has watched the films, the director told Empire, "I don't see them. I tried, you know? But that's not cinema."

"Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn't the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being," he added.
