There is nothing beyond the quotation that a news site could report. It's exciting for fans, boring to ordinary people. "XMDOFP Director Releases Photo of Script cover" doesn't exactly raise eyebrows amongst casual viewers. Every movie has a script, offering photo proof that there is one isn't a big deal. Now if the first 10 pages had been leaked, THAT would've been news worthy.
I didn't think you were attacking me. We just saw it differently.
What I meant is that the cover of the screenplay and that quotation is a factual thing from Singer himself, whereas the Hollywood Reporter (and the sites reporting/twisting what it is reporting) is far more speculative and insubstantial.
I mean, the fact that Joss Whedon handed in his Avengers 2 treatment made major news on some sites today. Uh, yeah, okay, so he handed it in. Yippee! Do I buy fireworks for that celebration?!
I saw the screenplay cover and quote to be indicative of some intelligence in the story and perhaps suggesting the tone or even the theme. Even that somehow seems more solid than this other stuff flying round the net.
