John Waters Talks About Martin Scorsese and Marvel Comics Movies

Legendary film director and producer John Waters attended the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival where he is the guest of honour, and he was asked about the comments from Martin Scorsese and other film directors regarding the Marvel and DC moves that have hit so many headlines.
