Speaking with Howard Stern, Downey has since responded to the comments, and while he clearly doesn't agree with Martin Scorsese, he takes the diplomatic approach and says he appreciates the difference of opinion. Here's what Downey had to say on Stern's radio show about Marvel and their place in cinematic history.
"It's his opinion. I mean, well, it plays in theaters. I appreciate his opinion, because it's like anything, we need all of the different perspectives so we can come to center and move on."
Feeling Downey is being too kind, Howard Stern presses him on the issue.
