  4. I use my twitter to post all of my thoughts that aren't refined (or clean) enough for Facebook. So I use it for shitposting.
  5. Can this thread reach 1000 pages before it evens starts filming? I'm sure it has at least 4-5 years to do so.
  6. Yeah, because it was only going to get continually delayed regardless.
  7. From a TV perspective though missing your fall season (or simply having a really bad one) could sink the show. That's a big difference this time around. Movies, you can dig up some unused scripts, eat some losses for delaying a few productions, and overall be fine. With so many scripted TV Shows, a struggling TV industry already, and little reality TV to fallback on, these are some pretty heavy short term losses to eat.
  8. Thats about on par with other first outing superhero flicks. I wouldn't expect much more than that for this WW.
  9. From the studio perspective, they'd be better off financially by just giving them the 300m.
  10. I wasn't that aware of everything going on with this, hopefully the negotiations go well.
  11. I understand the purpose, but they seem to skipping the negotiation first step.
  12. I'm not so sure how much I support shutting down industries with a strike. When the WGA strikes is hurts everyone's job in the industry. Unless writers are really getting bad ends of the stick.
