With TDW it isn't that they didn't find the right guy to direct. It is that we will never know, because Marvel wouldn't stop touching. The script situation is the biggest red flag you can have. It was the "Marvel" vision, not Taylor's.
Now I am not saying they don't have the right to do that, and in some cases such things help a production. But that isn't hands off.
I have said it before and I will say it again, why even hire the GoT guy if you arent going to let him do his thing?
Just doesnt make sense to me, and the movie was the poorer for it.
