    Marvel hubris. I think they thought the brand was so strong that even C and D list characters would perform, just like they did with GOTG, and so they could avoid using all of their top options all at once which would, in turn, create more demand for them when they finally were made. Instead they killed their own brand and the likelihood of success even for those unused A list properties.

    Seems like Marvel Studios is taking a page out of the Jets playbook, and are hoping that Deadpool can save their entire nightmare disaster shitpile of a franchise. Better hope Ryan Reynolds has a better OC. Every movie they have lined up (aside from DP3) looks like a giraffe fucking a hippo.

    I’m not even joking when I say - I would pay 50X more to sit in on a Disney Pictures creative meeting than I would to sit through just about any movie they produce. I want to watch the retard-pageant in process. Not that we don’t know how it happens. I just need the full experience.

    I bet they have the most robust focus group facilities in the world. Next to One Jets Drive anyway. Woody has focus groups to help him decide on breakfast.

    Hah.

    Side note - a new game show idea: match the meeting to the catering platter. A few options - sustainable anything, organic vegetable bullshit, swimming yesterday sushi, cured meats in intestines, pork underthings and “looks like vagina”.

    I’d bet anything there’s a correlation between success and food spread.

    Noticing a distinct lack of buzz surrounding the new "Dune" movie. I saw it and honestly, it felt just like the middle movie in a trilogy. Long movie for sure and if you've read the books or seen prior "Dunes", you'll notice a distinct departure from what you've already saw or read.

    No where near as bad as "Madame Web", but as far as "Dune" movies go, this one is beige.

    It was inevitable when that many dbag movie execs are around the number of 0's in the production budget. Shit wipes off on everything.
