In the past few weeks, Marvel has been facing some criticisms from renowned directors regarding their comic book and superhero movies. And adding fuel to the fire is yet another director, Ken Loach, who also has something to say about the supposed "art of cinema."

In a recent interview with Sky News, the Sorry We Missed You director revealed that he finds Marvel movies "boring." He added that their movies are "made as commodities like hamburgers." Seeing that "it's not about communicating" and that they're "not about sharing our imagination."

Loach went on to elaborate saying superhero movies are about "making a commodity which will make a profit for a big corporation." He claims that these are just "market exercises" and Marvel movies got "nothing to do with the art of cinema." You can check out his full interview below.
