Mintz was interviewed by Deadline... it's an interesting read

Post by darkwingdan »

So Dan Mintz was interviewed regarding Valiant's future in movies. I know this needs no repeating here, but he comes off like a complete tool. Delusional too. However, as previously reported he does seem to have an affinity for the Anni-Padda bros, which could bode well for bringing them to the big screen. Anyways, here's the whole thing if you're interested:

He still doesn’t answer the questions when asked. He dances around it and reflects to something related to it. Remember he’s the one who pushed out all the Psiots and Harbinger references in Bloodshot to get a more favorable deal for him. Not what was right for the characters.

DMG/Valiant aside, I think this guy is an idiot, and suprised he was able to talk himself into being a player. *SQUEE* idiot. And I haven't seen an interview with him where he actually answers a question. Some people do that well. He does not. Perhaps there is some gift he has, but it is not apparent to me.

He says things like I want to make a shared movie universe and we know for a fact he killed the one that VEI spent a decade building up to because he needed more credit. He has micro dick energy if you ask me.

There is zero need for me to add to all the deserved loathing sent Dan's way, but I'm glad to see it. Well more correctly, I'm sad to see it because it means this our situation. But glad to see people see through him.

But, anyways, I thought it was funny that the article talks about Mary-Maria like she was a tentpole hero. I actually wish she was. I'd be a fine sight more interesting than either Visitor or Witness. There'd certainly be more of a generator of fan interest. Mary-Maria rocked when she infiltrated BOTH the One Percent and PRS. And with the ghosts of her parents bouncing around in her head, and her position with the assassin nuns, I think we'd have a very unique character on our hands.
I've been looking everywhere for the ultra-rare Turok vs Blister issue. Anybody able to help me out?
