I don't line up for a superhero movie because it's art. I line up because it's--hopefully--a good time. Beyond the technical aspect of CGI and green screen technology, they aren't exactly pushing the art form of cinematic story telling forward. That assumes that his goal IS to make a movie that makes 2 billion dollars. Which, I doubt is true. However, what he has accomplished is more staggering than making 2 billions dollars at the box office. He's created some legendary movies (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, for example) that have influenced countless artists. His films will be continued to be studied and watched. And fuck, he's someone whose opinion on something is headline news... The Russo Brothers can barely open a movie that doesn't have Marvel attached. The guy, regardless of your personal opinion, is a legendary filmmaker.
