Robert Downey Jr is the latest Marvel star to weigh in on Martin Scorsese’s recent criticism of the superhero franchise.

Downey, who plays Iron Man in the Avengers series – addressed Scorsese’s remarks, saying he “appreciates” the filmmaker’s opinion. 

“I’ll tell you the truth, I didn’t expect [the Marvel Cinematic Universe] to become what it became and it is this very large, multi-headed Hydra at this point,” Downey told Stern at the start of the clip, which was released on YouTube early October 7. “I’ve always had other interests, and according to Scorsese, it’s not cinema so I have to take a look at that, you know?”

He continued, “I appreciate his opinion because I think, it’s like anything, we need all of the different perspectives so we can come to centre and move on.” Downey later added that though he wasn’t offended by Scorsese’s claims, saying Marvel movies were not cinema “makes no sense”.

Downey also believed that Scorsese’s remarks weren’t fuelled by any sort of jealousy. “Of course not, he’s Martin Scorsese,” the actor said. “By the way, there’s a lot to be said about how these genre movies — and I was happy to be a part of the ‘problem’, if there is one — denigrated the art form of cinema. When you come in like a stomping beast and you eliminate the competition in such a demonstrative way, it’s phenomenal.”

Previously, it was reported that Downey will make a cameo appearance in the Black Widow. The actor is also awaiting the release of Dr. John Dolittle.
