It seems you can’t be a true “writer” in a certain group of filmmakers unless you join Marvel’s hate train. Francis Ford Coppola – award-winning director of the 1972s The Godfather — added his name to the respected Marvel haters list back in 2019, but more recently he’s made a small caveat. There’s at least one Marvel movie they like, and it’s one that was made with “maximum effort.” That’s right, Francis Ford Coppola is a fan of 2016 Dead Pool.
the godfather The director receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today as he marks the 50th anniversary of the start of his beloved and acclaimed mafia saga. Speaking to Variety ahead of time, Coppola was asked who he thinks is leading the future of cinema. The director took the opportunity to highlight himself dune Director Denis Villeneuve and no time to die‘s Cary Joji Fukunaga as filmmakers whom he thinks are “wonderful” but don’t believe they “necessarily get a chance to make the films they care about. I think they’re being asked to make films that don’t go against the grain. We have a wealth of rich, great talent and I would give them more responsibility because of their ability.” Not to make it seem like they just hated all big budget films, Coppola added, “I liked Dead PoolI thought it was amazing.”
Dead Pool Star Ryan Reynolds was quick to respond godfather Director’s praise. As answer to total movie When he tweeted about the quote, Reynolds retweeted and posted a perfectly Deadpool-esque reply. You can see his tweet under.
Francis Ford Coppola joined the “how cool should it be to hate Marvel” debate back in 2019 when he claimed his fellow gangster-milking colleague Martin Scorsese was “nice” when they got that Marvel movies weren’t cinema. Coppola said they aren’t cinema, but they are “despicable”. More recently, Coppola doubled down on those comments when speaking to GQ (via Variety), saying that Marvel movies are “a prototype movie that’s made over and over and over again to look different.” Words of wisdom from the maker of The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II and The Godfather: Part III.
Back in 2019, The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Director James Gunn argued that what Coppola once said about Marvel movies, about westerns, gangster movies (like The Godfather), and so forth. Gunn’s comments apparently did little to change Coppola’s mind, though it may have helped him soften enough to appreciate Wade Wilson’s bloodletting. It’s good to know that Coppol isn’t completely closed to superhero cinema. Perhaps more Marvel films featuring heroes cutting off their own limbs would live up to the standards of the man who cast Keanu Reeves as a 19th-century Englishman Bram Stoker’s Dracula and forgot to ask him to use an accent.
Along with giving Dead Pool a passage that godfather The director told Variety he thinks there are other directors more deserving of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. During a break from pretense to speak for Denis Villeneuve and Cary Joji Fukunaga and every other number of directors who have not sought his endorsement – or while he hasn’t bothered to portray his own family as the future of cinema – They tapped George Lucas as a guy they’d gladly give his star to if he could. That’s right. The guy who hates formulaic big-budget movies told the creator of war of stars.
