Are Marvel films actual real movies?

    As some of you may already know, a lot of famous Hollywood elites like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have criticized Marvel films recently saying how they're not real films.  Personally, I disagree with that.  Heck if crap like "Carebears:  The Movie", and "Barney's Great Adventure" are considered films, then I don't see why the MCU films wouldn't be considered movies as well. 

    The way I look at  things is like this.  If you eat food at a five star restaurant it's considered food just as much as the crap you order at McDonald's is considered food as well.  Both are considered food.  However, in spite both the Five Star Restaurant and McDonald's serving food, that's not to say both places would be comparable in terms of quality obviously as we all know a five star restaurant's food would be much more higher quality obviously.  Although McDonald's does offer toys with their happy meals so there is that.  XD  lol.

    Anyways, all joking aside the same logic can be applied to movies.  Yes regardless of what you may think about the Marvel movies that have dominated cinemas these days they are in fact actual films just like any movie produced by Scorsese and Coppola is considered an actual film.  Now, that's NOT to say any movie that  the MCU makes is on par with anything like "Goodfellas", "Godfather" and etc, but they're all movies regardless. 

    Anyways, Disney's CEO, Bob Iger, defended his marvel movies echoing the same sentiment basically saying how it takes just as much work to make an MCU film, as it does any other movie that Scorsese and others would make, and how it wasn't fair to say MCU films aren't real movies, which I agree.

    Although I don't agree with his sentiments about "Black Panther" being  up there with anything both Scorsese and Coppola have done, as that's just laughable to me.  And by the way, I'm half Chinese, part Native American and part Hispanic, so you can't call me a racist for saying that either.

    Anyways what are your thoughts on this?  Do you agree with both Scorsese and Coppola that Marvel movies aren't real films, ,or do you agree with Bob Iger?  Also is "Black Panther" really equatable to such films like "Raging Bull?"  "Goodfellas"?  "Taxi Driver"?  Or even the "Godfather"?  please discuss.

      I've been thinking about this actually. I think Scorsese and Coppola may be a little jealous. They focus more on art and may put more into their work and take it a lot more seriously. I love Marvel movies, but the main focus may be for entertainment and cheap thrills. Scorsese and Coppola may do it more for the art of movies and directing. It makes me think of religion...some people like to say that some denominations who profess to be Christian are not because they are a little different than the mainstream. In both cases (movies & religion), who is to say that the work/religion is not valid. I would be offended if I were a Marvel director. You have to enjoy the movies that you are watching and many would find Marvel movies to be more entertaining.

    I think they're just upset because the world isn't into Italian mafia movies that much anymore.
