Denis Villeneuve has joined Scorsese in openly slamming the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This, just as his sci-fi epic Dune adaptation is about to hit theaters following rave reviews.

The comments have drawn ire from Marvel fans and support from others with similar takes.

Aside of the overwhelmingly positive reactions from critics to Dune, Villeneuve started making headlines after his interview with French outlet Premiere.

"[...]all these films are made from the same mold," he stated.

Villeneuve's 'roast' is a great deal more tame than what Scorsese said about the MCU films.

Many unhappy MCU fans have posted comments of varying degrees of civility condemning the director's statements.

The backlash spilled over into review bombing.

Dune will hit theatres and HBO Max on the 22nd of October.
