"Martin Scorsese trashed the Marvel movies in an interview with Empire magazine. "Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being," Scorsese said."
Quote
"Francis Ford Coppola followed suit this weekend, backing up Scorsese's comments at the Lumière Film Festival. "When Martin Scorsese says that Marvel pictures are not cinema, he’s right, because we expect to learn something from cinema. We expect to gain something—some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration. I don’t know that anyone gets anything out of seeing the same movie over and over again. Martin was kind when he said it’s not cinema. He didn’t say it’s despicable, which I just say it is," Coppola said."

"“You’re seeing what’s available out there and it’s just diminishing and diminishing in terms of, it’s big Marvel movies, or things that I’m not just asked to do or really that interested in living in a green screen,” Aniston told the show business daily.Aniston harkened back to a previous generation of films.  “I think we would so love to have the era of Meg Ryan come back,” she said. “I just think it would be nice to go into a movie theater, sit cozy. I think we should have a resurgence. Let’s get the ‘Terms of Endearment’ back out there. You know, ‘Heaven Can Wait,’ ‘Young Frankenstein,’ ‘Blazing Saddles,’ ‘Goodbye Girl.’ ”"

So, this begs to question..

Sure they are. It's all art. I enjoy all sorts of movies. Just like I enjoy jazz, baroque classical and house music ( and a bit of reggae too ). :)

Granted, marvel movies will not win best picture for drama or anything like that but yes, it is entertainment and as such, it is cinematic. :)
