Listen, I firmly believe that funny gifts are the best kind of gifts, period. Nodding to a good ole inside joke takes a lot more thought than a generic gift, you know? Well, it seems like Francesca Scorsese — Martin Scorsese’s daughter — agrees.
On her Instagram story, Francesca shared that this year she wrapped all her dad’s Christmas presents in Marvel gift wrap to poke fun at his ~controversial~ opinions about Marvel movies. I’ve gotta be honest here — it’s pretty hilarious.
In case you need a bit of a refresher, earlier this year Martin Scorsese explained that not only does he not watch Marvel movies, but that they were “not cinema” and more like “theme parks.”
After the backlash his comments sparked from Marvel actors and directors alike, it’s nice to see the whole thing come back around as a joke. Even Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn was here for it.
I’ve gotta admit, this whole thing was pretty iconic. Now I just hope one of those gifts was a something like a Marvel movie box-set, too.
