“You could ask Scorsese, ‘Would you like to make a Marvel movie?'” “But he doesn’t know what it’s like because he didn’t make one,” Holland said.

“Marvel movies have made and I’ve also made movies that have been in conversation in the Oscars world, and the only difference, really, is that one is a lot more expensive than the other.”

He continued, “But the way I break the character, the way the director has drawn the plot of the story and the characters – everything is the same, it’s done on a different scale. So I think they’re real art.”
