He had been quoted as stating, “Frankly, the nearest that I could think of these, also produced as they are, together with celebrities doing the very best they could under the conditions, is theme parks. It is not the cinema of human beings seeking to communicate psychological, emotional experiences to a different human being.”

Taking to Twitter, Whedon wrote, “I think of @JamesGunn, the way his heart & courage are packed to GOTG. I revere Marty, and I do see his point, but… Well, there is a reason why’ I am always mad’.” Whedon led the second and first Avengers movies, while Gunn led the 2 Guardians of the Galaxy films. He’ll next direct a Suicide Squad follow-up, and will subsequently return to helm Guardians 3.

I am saddened he’s now estimating my movies in precisely the same manner. Nevertheless, I shall always love Scorsese, be thankful for his contribution to theatre, and can not wait to find The Irishman.”

Recently throw celebrity of Marvel’s Shang Chi film, Simu Liu, also provided his 2 cents on the topic, also wrote, “I have always loved theme parks. Theme parks are all-inclusive; theme parks are all filled with joy and joy and laughter and dance. Did I mention they’ve churros?! Just my 2 pennies:-RRB-.”
