But the Super Bowl ads didn't help either of those films. In the case of John Carter, Disney already knew it was going to bomb horribly yet they bought a 60 second spot for one of the worst movie ads in recent history. It's like the Mouse dug itself a rathole and couldn't stop pissing money down it.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
