It seems as if fate isn't done putting the Marvel fan base against Scorsese just yet. It has been only a few months since Scorsese criticized Marvel films as a whole. He said that he doesn't think marvel films are cinema. This statement offended a large chunk of Marvel fans all around the world.
Marvel itself broke all box office records with its latest avengers flick, Avengers Endgame. Now at the top of the highest-grossing film ever, Endgame faces Scorcese The Irishman in an interesting place. Both the two films have nominated for the best VFX award at Oscars 2020. This is just the initial list and the official list will come out on January 13, 2020, which will narrow down these 18 films to just 5.
Currently the 18 films that are in the list for the award are Ad Astra, The Aeronauts, Aladdin, Alita: Battle Angel, Captain Marvel, Cats, Dumbo, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, Ford v Ferrari, Gemini Man, Jumanji: The Next Level, The Lion King, Men in Black: International, Midway, 1917, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and Terminator: Dark Fate.
