This weekend, Martin Scorsese doubled-down on comments he made comparing Marvel's stream of superhero films to "theme parks," proving that he doesn't really care about any past and future backlash from angry fans.

Scorsese's latest comments came during a press conference alongside Al Pacino and Robert De Niro on Sunday, to promote their future classic, The Irishman, which screened at the BFI London Film Festival.

"It's not cinema, it’s something else," Scorsese said of the popular blockbusters. "We shouldn’t be invaded by it. We need cinemas to step up and show films that are narrative films."

If it's any consolation to offended parties, the Oscar-winning director did offer up somewhat of an olive branch during BAFTA’s annual David Lean lecture, by saying that he'd heard the response from people who think the same way as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

"Theaters have become amusement parks. That is all fine and good but don’t invade everything else in that sense," Scorsese said on Saturday. "That is fine and good for those who enjoy that type of film and, by the way, knowing what goes into them now, I admire what they do. It’s not my kind of thing, it simply is not. It’s creating another kind of audience that thinks cinema is that."
