Marvel’s Kevin Feige Breaks Silence on Scorsese Attack: “It’s Unfortunate” (Exclusive)

In the ensuing weeks, both detractors of Marvel (Francis Ford Coppola) and its defenders (Jon Favreau) have shared their thoughts, with Scorsese expanding upon his comments in a New York Times op-ed published Nov.
