    Martin Scorsese's Daughter Wrapped All His Gifts In Marvel Gift Wrap And It's Everything

    I truly aspire to be this level of petty.

    Listen, I firmly believe that funny gifts are the best kind of gifts, period. Nodding to a good ole inside joke takes a lot more thought than a generic gift, you know? Well, it seems like Francesca Scorsese — Martin Scorsese's daughter — agrees.

    On her Instagram story, Francesca shared that this year she wrapped all her dad's Christmas presents in Marvel gift wrap to poke fun at his ~controversial~ opinions about Marvel movies. I've gotta be honest here: It's pretty hilarious.

    This might've been my favorite thing to happen all year, tbh.

    In case you need a bit of a refresher, earlier this year Martin Scorsese explained that he does not watch Marvel movies, and that they were "not cinema" and more like "theme parks."

    After the backlash, his comments sparked from Marvel actors and directors alike, it's nice to see the whole thing come back around as a joke. Even Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn was here for it.

    Makes me feel less embarrassed by that Shutter Island paper my nephew wrapped my gifts in.

    I've gotta admit, this whole thing was pretty iconic. Now I just hope one of those gifts was a something like a Marvel movie box set, too.
