Default Re: James Mangold will direct The Wolverine

Drive lays bare the nature of heroism of the sort of love stricken protagonists you would see in Hollywood movies. Drive presents the hero to be as sociopathic in his brutality and lack of mercy as the bad guys. Enemies who are only his enemies because of his attachment to a woman. Were this woman a heiress of a mob empire he could be swinging his club of brutality to the same people his enemies did.

Drive is quite a thoughtful film that expresses its ideas in audiovisual terms than through exposition and dialogue.

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
