What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• He already did this in that awful movie with Rachel MacAdams. Harrison Ford signs up for Anchorman sequel
• Another reason to hate the Hangover series: they’re so desperate they are besmirching the good name of *Enemy Mine.* Despicable.
• The fallout begins… Artist Quits Superman Project After Outcry Over Writer’s Marriage Views
(hat-tip for today’s links: bronxbee)
Others see the Hangover III poster as ripping of this Harry Potter poster (mixed with the background of the Star Trek Into Darkness poster) => http://pmchollywoodlife.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/032911_harry_potter_poster_teaser_544110329133505.jpg?w=544
I don’t think a lot of people remember Enemy Mine (a very good movie in my opinion), so I don’t think they were targetting that poster.
I’ll gladly support Hangover III if they promise never to make any more. But I fear it’s too late…
I think this is more a case of MaryAnn exercising her right to sarcasm.
Apropros of the bit about Chris Sprouse quitting, it seems like this version of Superman is attracting odd homophobes…here’s a link to Towleroad where the relevant part is at the bottom before the jump: http://www.towleroad.com/2013/03/sidewalkbigot.html#more
“On the bright side, this charmer is already in talks with DC Comics to illustrate Orson Scott Card’s Superman story.”
