    Meh. While he did do terrible during the mid to late 00s, he was doing a better job recently.

    I believe that the vast majority of people around these parts will rejoice. People have been ready for this since X-Men: The Last Stand. With that said...

    Rothman's approach of micro-managing directors was ruining the studios relationship with filmmakers and hurting their reputation with directors. He managed to change his attitude over the last few years.


    Tom Rothman did great with Fox Searchlight the studio-brand independent arms. They helped partly fund and distribute alot of Danny Boyles movie.

    But then again he also did things like Dragonball Evolution and change the set of Wolverine behind director Gavin Hoods back.

    Someone who worked with Rothman said

    Eh.... the Rothman hate has gotten pretty old now. Maybe three years ago I would have been more excited but Fox has finally gotten their act together so it's nothing really exciting. I just think this excitement is left over hate from the 2005 - 2009 years.

    Fox hasn't been doing too bad as of late but Rothman must pay for his crimes.

    Well it sounded like other people were responsible for the the last few years at Fox, like doing the Dreamworks Animation deal.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I remember when the headlines read "Avi Arad no Longer Producer at Marvel Studios!" I think just about everyone shat their pants out of excitement... and then upon reading the article we found out he was now acting PRESIDENT. Kevin Feige is much better (aside from the whole Edward Norton crap that happened).

    Hey now, he's written some of my favourite comics. (TV and Movies, not so much...)
