comic book movies!  
Meshing two timelines in a crossover is always problematic, but man, especially Avengers/Marvel movies stuff. That timeline is TIGHT, y'all. I think I can set the fic in the gap pre-Avengers, which on the one hand will give me even more to talk about than I thought before I realized some of the films overlap, but on the other hand, creates a problem with anyone in his right mind being skeptical when Iron Man is already public and Hulk Smash New York. But the best part is that I wrote about 2K of this PoI/Av fic yesterday. It's pretty fun.

Speaking of comic book movies, I was reading an article about the theoretical Justice League movie and Green Lantern especially. It's really sad when you watch Green Lantern because it's so frakking obvious that a committee was involved. You can tell that every few minutes some idiot DC/WB exec gave a stupid note about wanting more action or more villains or more everything, and left it a horrible convoluted mess to please no one. It's sad because a live-action Green Lantern could be really awesome (outer space! lots of cool aliens!) and there're bits of it that suggest there's a decent movie in there someplace if they'd let it. *sigh* I do not envy anyone writing the Justice League movie that's for sure.

Execs: leave the writing to the writers, especially if they're adapting a pre-existing franchise that they know more about than you do. God.

What is especially maddening is that they know from Nolan and Dark Knight that it works! Way too many cooks in the GL kitchen, that's for sure. What a waste.
