Wait a minute, a falcon nurses a human being back to health? The telepathic bond is fine, but the rest gives me nightmare visions of Sam sitting in a giant nest with Redwing dropping chunks of carrion into his open mouth.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
