Re: Madame Web (Sony, 2024)

Marvel/Disney are trying to scapegoat Dakota Jackson as the cause. She did seem to be taking PR lessons from Bree Larsen and anyone who is most known for 50 Shades of Grey should not throw stones at superhero movies https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/madame-web-star-dakota-johnsons-unhinged-pres...

Re: Better adaptions and remakes

Lynch's is definitely more interesting visually, and it's weirder. But I think once the pair of Dune movies are out it won't be much of a contest, the new ones have a lot more to them.

The Boys is a much better TV show than a comic book. The recent Punisher series was better than a lot of the comics too.

Re: Madame Web (Sony, 2024)

The problem which all these projects have is that unless you've got Tom Hardy, nobody gives a shit about a Spider-Man movie without Spider-Man.

And to be honest, I'm not sure folks care that much about Spider-Man movies with Spider-Man either.

They don't want you in the audience. Classic Who may not have been 100% diverse but it most certainly never actively alienated an audience segment. I mean it sort of never had to. It's audience of nerds was self-selecting and massively underserved. Most people weren't into it, didn't watch it.
