With every passing day, one Marvel associated member after the other is coming forward to talk about the outrage that legends like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola have sparked due to the comments they passed on Marvel films.
After Robert Downey Jr, Natalie Portman and others, the man who started it all, Jon Favreau has come forward to talk about the same. "These two guys are my heroes, and they have earned the right to express their opinions,” Favreau told CNBC in an interview on Tuesday morning. “I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing if they didn’t carve the way. They served as a source of inspiration, you can go all the way back to Swingers... They can express whatever opinion they like.”
In the CNBC interview, Favreau also discussed the rapidly changing entertainment landscape, which he says is creating “a great deal of uncertainty” but also “a lot of opportunity.”
As an example, he used Scorsese’s The Irishman.
“You see Scorsese with The Irishman, I don’t know that that would have been possible, with that budget level, and the technology required to tell that story, in a more traditional model,” Favreau said.
