She defended the comic book adaptations, saying that movies allow viewers a chance to escape from their day-to-day lives.

“I think that Marvel films are so popular because they’re really entertaining and people desire entertainment when they have their special time after work, after dealing with their hardships in real life,” said Portman.

Earlier this month, Scorsese spoke with Empire magazine about his views towards the Marvel movies, expressing that he regards them as “not cinema” and likens them to “theme parks”. Since his initial remarks, Scorsese repeated the “theme parks” analogy at the BFI London Film Festival.
