We don't know the detail, but I am betting that in the end Marvel and Sony split the differences and ended up in the middle. No one really "won" over the other.

And you inabltiy to admit that the Zack Snyder DC films got a very mixed reaction from DC fans is incredible.

The box office numbers speak for themselves.

Just saw that Todd Phillips blamed the "far left" for the controversy over Joker, lol. Couple that with his "real movie" comments and basically calling Keanu a white man and I'm even more convinced that this man has no thoughtful social commentary to offer with this movie. It's good that WB isn't allowing interviews at the premiere because he's very likely to say something ignorant or cringey. 

Yeah it's telling the narrative went from "Isn't it good we're asking these kinds of questions?" To "We've banned the press from interviewing us at he premiere to avoid these kinds of questions." In the span of about two days.

Far left outlets are responsible for causing all these controversies around the movie, so he is absolutely right. And "real movie" phrase was taken out of context, he said that to Phoenix to convince him to do the movie because he didn't want to do comic book movie. But I'm not surprised at all that you side with those morons considering you are a part of woke crowd and you have been shitting on this movie from the very beginning.

Nobody stops you or anyone else to ask these kind of questions and have big discussions, all they did is banned idiots from provoking the cast by asking idiotic questions like "do you think this movie will kill anybody?" to create more clickbait headlines and cause more controversy around it.

If Todd Phillips is so intent on making a "real movie" he should be prepared to actually answer real questions, especially when the government and police also have expressed very real concerns as well. The Trump DoD is not the "far left" by any stretch of the imagination. Unless you think they're in on the plot to orchestrate mass shootings like the press supposedly is?

He already answered them many times, they've been showing the movie to press since August 31 on many screenings and a couple of festivals, there's no reason to asnwer those moronic questions again and give them more fuel to continue these controversies.

They didn't express any real concerns, they said they found no credible threats, the only reason they did a statement at all is because io9 leaked the info and they had to comment on the whole panic and mass histeria the press has been spreading.

Again, they said there's no real threats, they issued a warning to their troops because of the whole mass histeria around the movie. The press is just stupid.

Lol 

 

It truly is something to see you lot resort to name calling because you can't handle criticism of this movie.  Pretty clear that Phillips himself wanted this awards bait rip off to be seen as a "real movie" which makes it all the more hilarious to see him complain about no one questioning "white man" Keanu killing peope in John Wick. Lol!

Lol!

You mean, award-winning. And didn't you make fun of people judging the quality of the movie before watching it?

Speaking of answering the real questions, why don't you answer for the fact that you purposely misconstrued what victims of a shooting had said so that you could create a false narrative just because you're a fanboy. Why don't you answer for this? Do you have no ethics?

John Wick is white though. And I'm sure you were convinced you weren't going to like this movie before those comments. It's just that what he said now gives you a reason to voice your bias.

The Irishman already certified fresh at 41 reviews, while fellow De Niro joint Joker still hasn't got it at 127 reviews. Sad!

What a disgrace. The Irishman should be banned in all countries. A movie that glorifies crime and gang life for 3 hours and 20 minutes. We can deal with it being 3 hours, but the extra 20 minutes will ensure that the ignorant white man will now try to become a gangster and commit crimes! Disgusting! /s

Gotta add extra security to all the home theaters playing Irishman on their Netflix accounts. Also it's 3 hours 29 minutes... get it right.

I believe the Rotten Tomatoes criteria states that non theatrical or limited release movies can be certified fresh with only 40 or so reviews.

Joker could be considered awards bait in 70s-early 2000s, but 2019 oscar bait is a completely different movie. There's no legit criticism from your woke friends, just absurd controversy and headlines for clicks and traffic.

The Irishman is the first certified fresh De Niro movie in 6 years, not poor Joker.

On a lighter note (I hope), I noticed an interesting parallel between Batman and Spider-Man. Back in the Summer of 2012, we got a Spider-Man reboot and a third Batman movie that were released a few weeks apart from each other. In the Summer of 2021, we’ll be getting a Batman reboot and a third Spider-Man movie released a few weeks apart. 

 

Just thought that was fun to point out.

First of many... Irishman, then Joker, then his team up with DiCaprio in 2021 (or 2022 depending on how long Marty edits). Career retrospectives will say he just took a very long break between Jackie Brown and Joker, thereby preserving his filmography as being untouchable (and including De Palma's The Untouchables)
