As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a superhero.

I'm not the biggest fan of either, but Scorsese's work is more varied and interesting overall. I do think it's nonsense to try and disqualify things you don't like as "not cinema", though.

The greatest Superhero movie, but pulling it from the sub-genre is like pulling GoodFellas apart from Scorsese.

One made Silence, the other has a movie that ends with a racoon crying. So both.

I'll rewatch Into the Spider-Verse more than all the Scorsese and Marvel/DC films combined so... Superheroes it is.
