Re: Captain America 2: News and Speculation - Part 8
I don't know about Thor, but Cap sounds really intriguing, positioning itself apart of the glut of mediocre comic book films in the conception stage alone. And I thought Iron Man, for it's insubstantial villain (Killian, not Slattery), was a well done comic book film with an admirable unity of vision. The director Shane Black's stamp was all over the film like glue. It is very interesting to see a director driven film in a genre that is dominated by films that feel like they are made by a committee.
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.
