Default Re: The "Keep Hope Alive" (that the rights can revert back to Marvel) thread

- By all acounts was a prima donna on the set of Iron Man 1 and was very difficult to work with. Also, he refused to make less money per picture than Robert Downey Jr., who was playing IRON MAN!! Howard was subsequently dropped for any further films.

- Much like Norton, was unhappy with the final product of the film and how his role was treated in it. Before being cast, Rourke apparently balked at the amount Marvel offered him but ended up taking the role anyway. Rourke, by all accounts, appears to be yet another actor that is notoriously difficult to work with.

- Left the Thor sequel project based on creative differences with Marvel. By all accounts, she split on very good terms and even said that she would like to direct another Marvel Studios film someday.

"Because as we all know Marvel Studios never screws up. Just ask these guys"


Game, set and match. Well played, sir.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
