The only reason I'm claiming that there's no substantiating evidence in any of the articles that claim this deal was offered is because THERE WAS NO SUBSTANTIATING EVIDENCE THAT THIS DEAL WAS OFFERED!
The articles only ever state "sources". Now, sources could be Kevin Feige, or sources could be toilet paper in your bathroom. "Sources" means exactly diddly. How I feel about what was reported makes no difference. The fact is, the only sources actually named in regards to this supposed "deal" were the ones who were denying anything of the sort had taken place.
Also, interesting that you completely sidestepped trying to explain how losing the DD rights was a "calculated maneuver" that somehow helped them in regards to keeping the FF rights...
Still waiting on that, btw.
