Im sorry that I didnt post about those. I really am sorry. Those movies had its fair share of problems as well, dont play devil advocate with me MR.! Lets take a moment here please. Im not speaking of street fighter as if thats my prob, its movie adaptations of comic books, video games, etc. Dont pick at what im trying to say here by posting those old strange comics. Lets not try to be a-holes about this.
I think we are all smart here. To a limit. I totally understand how an adaptation of a comic to live action do require tweaking here and there. But to abandon certain things. How would you'd feel if they came out with a Batman movie, where he lost his parents in a plane crash? Or to... An O.D?
And agent, for you to insult me on the line about the storyboard thing doesnt mean I have a lack of understanding of either medium. They are like cousins for God sakes. I looked up to you man. How are you going to argue that? Really man? What does a storyboard do in a movie, show? Tells the story in a sequential manner to the director/actor, etc. And a comic book? Im sad.
Back to the story at hand. Im just venting now, because well.. We're going to see a ton load of Movies based on our favortie comic books come to life and well ruined. Wolverine was a horrible movie, but they're going to make more. Why" Because of money. No integrity, no nothing. They made money, but at what expense? So movie based on a comic, with some directors "Interpretation" of the movie. I would argue that most of these people involved has no grasp on the Comics. But you have those that swear that they loved the character, only to butcher the movie. "sigh".
Imagine if one of these Hollywood types took YOUR character and butchered the shit out of it. Yeah you mightve made some dough, but.... Hey, at least you made money.
