George Lucas Shares His Thoughts on Martin Scorsese’s Comments on Marvel Movies Not Being “Cinema” — GeekTyrant

Star Wars and Indiana Jones creator George Lucas recently shared his thoughts on director Martin Scorsese‘s opinion that Marvel movies aren’t “cinema”. He talked about this while offering his take on the current state of Hollywood.

During an interview at The Cannes Film Festival, Lucas was asked about Scorsese’s take on superhero movies, he responded:

“Look. Cinema is the art of a moving image. So if the image moves, then it’s cinema. I think Marty has kind of changed his mind a little bit.

Lucas went on to talk about how there’s no original thinking and imagination in the Hollywood studio system: “The stories they’re telling are just old movies. Let’s do a sequel, let’s do another version of this movie. There’s no original thinking. The big studios, they don’t have an imagination.” 

I couldn’t agree with Lucas more. It’s a rare thing to see a major studio greenlight an original movie idea. They just aren’t willing to take risks anymore.

Lucas went on to confirm that he is retired and saying: “The last one I did as a producer was a thing called Strange Magic, which is an animated film. So I was doing movies that I wanted to do rather than…I was financing myself and had my own studio. I am building a museum in Los Angeles. It’s keeping me very busy.”

I’m sure Lucas is keeping himself busy, but I would sure love to see him come out of retirement and make another movie one day.
