"We’re being robbed. By bards. I’m as surprised as you are."
this is my new favorite video
Hercules reads his script entirely wrong
(reads the word disappointed, when he was supposed to sound disappointed)
New favorite thing to say when disappointed.
I shout this all the time and I am only 70% sure people understand the reference
I FORGOT ABOUT THIS
FUCK OH MY GOD
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.
"Who are the flowers for?"
"What’s your favorite thing about yourself?"
"I guess I always try to be honest."
"What’s a time you weren’t as honest as you’d have liked?"
"It took me too long to come out of the closet."
"I guess I just didn’t know for sure."
"And when did you settle on it?"
"Honestly, when society’s expectation is that you’re straight, I think you constantly have to settle on it."
This is not an April Fools joke.
Above, you’ll see John Romita’s original art for the cover to Amazing Spider-Man #121. That issue contains one of the most important stories in the history of Marvel Comics; if you’re not familiar with it, you can read plenty about it at its Wikipedia page. It was written by Gerry Conway.
It’s also the basis for the next Spider-Man movie, which comes out next month.
Now, you’d think that Sony Pictures could find a seat for Gerry Conway. But according to the author of “The Night Gwen Stacy Died,” Sony has yet to acknowledge him.
Last year I went to a press screening of Fox Entertainment’s THE WOLVERINE with Chris Claremont, the writer of the movie’s source material. Claremont was my plus one—he hadn’t been invited to a premiere or a screening. We watched the closing credits together, searching in vain for his name. (Marvel Entertainment and its parent corporation, The Walt Disney Company, have their own checkered history with treatment of talent, but neither THE WOLVERINE nor AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 were produced by them.)
Do you think this is acceptable behavior toward creators? Should Gerry Conway have to take to social media to get an invitation the premiere of a movie based on his work? It’s not like he’s asking for any of the QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS the movie is expected to bring in at the box office.
Here’s Gerry Conway’s Twitter account; have a look. And please consider helping him get the word out.
