Figs. In 2007, it looked like they were trying to get Thor together. They had a screenwriter and a director. The script had a really good buzz around it. People here that managed to read it really seemed to like it. Matthew Vaughn was set to direct.

Then the strike happened, and it suddenly moved to a halt. And Matthew Vaughn's directing deal expired during the strike. Just saying its not like they weren't working trying to get this stuff done. Every indication seems to be that they were. Then they had two huge movies coming out this summer and had to see how they would perform. Hulk is still yet to be released.

Wow, Don Murphy sounds like a jealous and spiteful little douche bag.

And he uses as his excuse for mocking Favreau "Transfomers 2?" Well the first one, even if you like it, doesn't hold a spot on Iron Man and the sequel to TF began production and pre-principal photography shooting without a freaking screenplay because of the writer's strike!

If that's the model Marvel wants to use I'd be worried. Mind you Spider-Man 2 was done as a fast-tracked 2 year sequel, but I'm going to say we got really lucky that the right writers rewrote early drafts and Raimi had a good idea what he wanted to do with that movie in 2002.

I don't want to make that the model. Three years makes more sense. But Marvel wants to make as much money as possible, which I think is what caused Norton to turn his back on TIH. We'll see if this business strategy of quick and dirty works or backfires on Marvel.

Either way they'll make better pictures than Murphy ever ****ing made.

If Spider-man 2 wouldn't have been done that quickly if there had just been a WGA strike and there was about to be a SAG strike.

Transformers isn't even a fifth of the movie Iron Man is. Let the guy live in denial. It's comedy for the rest of us.

I think he knows exactly how much better Iron Man is then Transformers in quality. That's why he's pissed off.

We know it, he knows it, everyone knows it.

He's just not publically admitting it. All he's doing is projection.

If I ever see Orci at a convention, I will ask him about this.

Jeez, just read some of Murphy's posts.

The guy really does come off as an absolutely arrogant and jealous * hole.
