â€œI mean thatâ€™s like saying Bugs Bunny ainâ€™t funny. Films are films. Everybody doesnâ€™t like his stuff either,â€ Jackson told Varietyâ€˜s Angelique Jackson at the grand opening of Tyler Perryâ€™s new studio in Atlanta, Ga. â€œEverybodyâ€™s got an opinion, so I mean itâ€™s okay. Ainâ€™t going to stop nobody from making movies.â€

Jacksonâ€™s comments were in response to an interview Scorsese gave Empire magazine, in which â€œThe Irishmanâ€ filmmaker likened the superhero films to theme parks.
â€œI donâ€™t see them. I tried, you know? But thatâ€™s not cinema,â€Â Scorsese said. â€œHonestly, 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 isnâ€™t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.â€
Earlier on the carpet, Jackson praised Perry, the eveningâ€™s man of the hour, calling him both â€œa real oneâ€ and â€œa real anomaly.â€
â€œEverybody has dreams about things they want to do and what they hope to accomplish. Tyler has been one of those visionaries that taps into his visions and makes them happen,â€ Jackson said. â€œAnd thatâ€™s amazing. Everybody doesnâ€™t have that acumen.â€
â€œHow did Nick Fury not end up in Wakanda?,â€ Jackson said. â€œIâ€™m sure heâ€™s been there, at least to the club.â€
