I've only started Episode 7 "The Marvel Method" of Marvel's 616 documentary series, and this episode highlights a broken aspect of the comic book industry.

Everyone over at Marvel breaking their backs to accommodate one white mediocre writer who fails to meet deadlines.
Why Marvel thought this documentary in particular would be something to show off to the world is beyond me.

Honestly, there are far better writers in Marvel's lineup that could've made them look great, but they chose the incompetence of Slott.
Also, it's worth noting that the intro of the episode is Slott attempting to write a comic and then getting distracted by a tweet notification.

The same Slott who is notorious for getting into twitter fights, blocking people, and talking shit.

The man is so incompetent that they needed to bring in another writer to pick up the slack so that they could meet the deadlines Slott was missing.

Marvel made a documentary about how bad one of their writers is. You can't make this shit up!
This documentary is wild.
According to the doc, the "Marvel Method" of putting half the story on the artist and not working full script slows things down tremendously and makes meeting deadlines almost impossible.

So why the hell are they allowing Slott to continue this? Why are they indulging him?
The documentary actually focused on the letterers and how they have it the worst. They even edited it in a comedic way with comedic timing beats and music.
How is this real?!
My respect for comic book letterers is through the roof now. They really are the backbone of the comic book world that gets the shit end of the stick.

This is insanity. Why do they let this go on?
My god. The documentary actually ends with Slott and Brevoort, the editor, joking about how all of that insanity only amounted to 1 single issue and now they need to repeat it for 5 more.

The B&W Justice League trailer made me want to watch BvS in B&W as well, so I turned off the color on the tv.

BvS was already a gorgeous film, but holy shit is it truly awesome in B&W, especially the Batman shots. They're so beautifully lit like a noir film.
Larry Fong did a phenomenal job lighting the Batman scenes. He used the high contrast noir aesthetic to his advantage, always keeping Batman in the shadows and the light just giving us enough to get a glimpse of his presence.
The entire film is great in B&W. The only thing that loses context because of the lack of color is the Kryptonite gas.

The Kryptonite spear and Superman's heat vision look phenomenal, but the Kryptonite gas just looks like normal gas and it's weird for a second.

My preferred ending for the Winchester bros would've been Sam ending up with Eileen and Dean not knowing what to do with his life, so he wanders around until he accidentally bumps into Lisa again.
After all these years, they meet again for the first time. Just like strangers. They flirt, and as Dean begins to walks away, he realizes he can finally choose.

In that quiet moment, Dean choses to be happy, to live. So, he turns around and the screen cuts to black.
All his life Dean was forced to fight to protect others and never allowing himself to be happy. Sam always had that choice, Dean didn't.

This would've been him allowing himself to live and be happy. His freedom from Chuck, from the hunt. An unrelenting weight off his shoulders.

I'm going to be tweeting everything Zack Snyder says during his Justice League trailer breakdown in this thread!

(1/- )
Zack, for a long time, watched and edited his movie on his computer in black and white.
The history lesson was always Uxas (Young Darkseid), mo-capped by Richard Cetrone, Ben Affleck's Batman stunt double.

He pounded the Earth with his staff to reveal the Anti-Life equation because he thinks it's on Earth. The symbols from the ground (lava) need to be deciphered!
