Despite recently calling Marvel Studios movies "despicable," acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola actually enjoyed 2018's animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, according to one of the film's directors.
"Actually, Francis HAS seen it and was very complimentary and really appreciated the innovation and animated performances," co-director Peter Ramsey said in response to a Twitter post suggesting Coppola would enjoy Into the Spider-Verse. "So, not everything is so cut and dried."
