Final September, Pajiba revealed an interesting open letter to Warner Bros’ CEO Kevin Tsujihara, written by a former Warner Bros worker – go right here to learn. The letter went viral, principally as a result of the ex-employee stated a variety of the stuff that the followers had been saying for a very long time: cease screwing up beloved franchises, cease pouring good cash after unhealthy, cease with the infinite reshoots to “repair” problematic movies that ought to have been corrected on the script degree and far, way more. The letter was additionally extensively mentioned as a result of the ex-employee nonetheless had connections and buddies at WB, and people sources stated that WB’s Marvel Girl is definitely an enormous mess.
Personally, I may take or go away most superhero movies. I discover that Marvel movies have dissolved into their insular smugness. The present incarnation of the Batman/Superman franchises have left me chilly too. However I used to be wanting ahead to Marvel Girl, principally based mostly on two excellent-looking trailers. I hoped that WB had no less than gotten Marvel Girl proper, in order that WW wouldn’t be held up for example of “why a stand-alone superheroine movie doesn’t work.” However guess what? There are much more rumors that Marvel Girl is a large number. Sasha Perl-Raver, host of Schmoes Know, advised the viewers:
“So, I don’t wish to throw anybody below the bus. We’ve got any individual inside our group who has gotten insider info that broke my effing coronary heart this week, as a result of I’ve great perception that Marvel Girl is gonna be superior and I heard it stinks from the identical one who advised me that they heard that BvS stinks…The one who I spoke to…their response was ‘I’m very upset in what I noticed, and it looks like all the issues are the identical issues. It’s discombobulated, it doesn’t have narrative circulation. It’s simply very disjointed.”
It wouldn’t shock me if the story doesn’t make a lot sense, as a result of plot holes and superhero movies go collectively like peanut butter M&Ms and disgrace. The optimistic facet says that the movie could be disjointed and nonetheless be good or pleasing. The pessimistic/reasonable facet of me says that the rumors are in all probability true and that the movie is a shambolic mess. In fact, there’s additionally hidden choice #three: the movie is neither a complete mess nor completely wonderful, however Warner Bros is taking part in a PR sport with expectations, attempting to dial it down a notch in order that when the movie doesn’t suck nards, folks might be like, “Yay, go see this!”
