Read my new spoiler-free interview with #CaptainAmericaCivilWar  writers! (And no, the headline is NOT a spoiler, I promise!)

http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhughes/2016/05/06/captain-america-civil-war-writers-talk-de-powering-cap-introducing-spider-man/

Comedy is probably the hardest of all genres to get right, partly because it defies conventions of usual filmmaking in ways making it hard to predict what audiences will respond to. If a plot is weak and nonsensical, it usually undermines storytelling and the movie suffers. But in comedy, having thin, senseless [...]

The Nice Guys is only Shane Black's third film as feature director, his previous time in the chair being Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3. But before ever donning a director's cap, Black was one of the highest-paid and most influential screenwriters of the last 30 years. Indeed, his sensibilities came to [...]

You obviously didn't even READ the article, or you'd have known (a) it was published BEFORE Wan confirmed he was staying on Aquaman, (b) that I got the rumor from MAINSTREAM PRESS who picked up the rumor from Birth.Movies.Death, (c) that I said it was A RUMOR and not certain, (d) that I thought Wan would stay with WB/DC even if he changed projects, (e) that I'm I've covered WB/DC movies with very positive articles shooting down rumors and telling fans everything is going to be okay, not to worry, not to assume rumors are true, etc.

When you just read a headline and start ranting like you did, you're going to regret it when you figure out you were wrong and just looked silly getting furious for no reason. Calm down and READ before you start talking trash at someone.
