'Godfather' Director Francis Ford Coppola Calls Marvel Films 'Despicable'.

While recently in France, the legendary filmmaker backed up Martin Scorsese's criticisms of the MCU.

When Martin Scorsese says that the Marvel pictures are not cinema, he's right because we expect to learn something from cinema, we expect to gain something, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration, Francis Ford Coppola, via France 24.

Martin was kind when he said it's not cinema.

He didn't say it's despicable, which I just say it is, Francis Ford Coppola, via France 24.

Marvel fans soon took to social media to rip the 80-year-old Coppola.

Sorry gentlemen, struggling to stay relevant by being a bitter old curmudgeon and complaining about successful movies is just sad, @Ghostboy67, via Twitter.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn also let his thoughts known, but did not directly reference Coppola.

Some superhero films are awful, some are beautiful.

Like westerns and gangster movies (and before that, just MOVIES), not everyone will be able to appreciate them, even some geniuses.

And that’s okay, James Gunn, via Instagram
