Just out of curiosity: when was this and how was he found out?
He signed up for these boards and someone created a thread for him which was supposed to be an AMA (Ask Me Anything) and essentially never answered anything and just used it to promote his big Super Bowl scoop, his site and get people to join his mailing list.
It was even worse than Woody Harrelson's Reddit AMA promoting Rampart.
Ahh, I see. Thanks.
Its really what started to make people really hate him. He was pretty divisive before but it seems a lot of people were put off by his instragram clues and blatant ****ing for his site for what equated to being, at least IMHO a pretty terrible scoop. And I use scoop very liberally here.
LOl I don't see how his scoop was terrible if it pans out, but that's relative to the person I guess. Latino-Review also used to get a hold of scripts before anyone. You guys may not like the fact that he wouldn't divulge scoops on SHH but the fact is that he's in a business and is not going to reveal scoops on a message board away from his site. He let the Solo scoop fly because it was a way of promoting LR on a broader canvas. I get that you guys may not like his demeanor but that ultimately has little to do with his actual content.
How the content is packaged matters just as much as the content itself. And like it's been shown, he's been hit or miss. For every big scoop you show he got right, there are a lot more he didn't.
Which ones hasn't he gotten right so far?
the skrulls in TA for example. One can argue, that the chitauri were supposed to be skrulls somewhere in preproduction, but at the time elmayimbe posted his 'scoop' as far as we know they switched to chitauri months ago.
also: the planet hulk stuff is utter nonsense. from storytelling and business standpoints. that is clearly made up.
The chitauri are ultimate skrulls so he was right there. And at this point in time, we have no idea if the planet hulk scoop is fake.
Remember when Sam Jackson's script was stolen and someone tried to sell it on web sites? I wonder why Marvel didn't try to make all the sites remove the copy of the pages?
It was clearly the real deal.
For one thing, nobody actually posted the script online. There was part of a page or two in a photo, but the scene and dialogue are meaningless and non-contextual until you've actually seen the movie and understand what is going on there. Had anyone actually taken the thief up on their offer, then civil and criminal charges would've come down, and come down hard.
In the case of the Deep Space Armor, there's nothing shady or illegal going on by the toy company....they're just happily promoting product --- for themselves *and* Marvel. It wasn't until Marvel evidently told them that it was a scene spoiler that they quickly and obligingly removed the image.
Marvel told every site to take down that image *after* LR posted that it was a scene spoiler, lol. Not when a half-dozen other sites ran the toy image a few days before.
So you only learned that that was a movie spoiler due to LR, not sure how you can possibly argue that that's a strike against them
Also, these scripts change so frequently...
- originally set in the time of Vikings for it's Earth scenes.
- Featured Balder, Malekith, Karnilla, and Eric the Red.
- At one point was half WW2/ half Modern day.
- Early incarnations of the current all WW2 movie featured the Barons Zemo and Strucker.
- Featured Hulk as the primary villain at one point.
- Featured Wasp as a hero.
- Might have featured Thanos in a more active role in some draft.
- Might have featured Skrulls in an earlier draft.
The plans for A3 could be WWH. It could also change by 2018.
I loved Kazaam
So Momoa was never confirmed? I guess it was a rumour after all from El Maybe.
It sounded like everyone was reporting "negotiations," so it still possible I would think until we hear someone officially passed
t: ....I guess there *are* a couple of letter missing from Mayimbe.
Just look for the word "exclusive." LR were the first to break the news that Ledger and Routh were cast. That means, they weren't citing some other site. Yes, they report the news reported on other sites just like everyone else, but when they use the word "exclusive," that's what designates one of their scoops. And they've had a lot of 'em. But how many of those have been from El Mayimbe specifically, I have no idea. I know a lot of the more recent Marvel-related stuff came from Da7e.
And that is what makes the Planet Hulk "scoop" such a perfect rumor to float. Even if he's wrong, he can claim that he was right at one time, but Marvel changed their plans. The date of any supposed movie is so far down the line that most people will have forgotten all about mayimbe's scoop by then, anyway. It's so much safer than, say, claiming that Marvel plans a Black Panther movie in 2014 only to be proven wrong a month or two later. He can dine out on this for years without fear of contradiction.
Is this a Guardians of the Galaxy thread or a "Let's ******e the guy from Latino Review!" thread? He already squandered his run here with his dumbass membership drive.
Less El MayWhatthe****ever, more GotG plz.
Rocket from Toy Fair
uh, sorry! wrong picture.
The Real Rocket
Chitauri are Ultimate Skrulls so...no that was right
But when one says "Skrulls" there's an expectation of shape shifting and impersonation. Chitauri in Avengers was probably just a nod to that name, because they weren't anything like Ultimate Skrulls really. It was all nominal and they could've been called anything else.
^^^ That came off harsher than I intended. Sorry yall.
