OK, this is my first post, not just off the year but in general. Regarding Jodie Foster's claims regarding comic book films while I largely disagree, I do think there are some problems with the genre. For one, studio interference. Justice League, while a largely competent movie, suffered heavily from studio meddling in my opinion. From the mandate to keep the film under 2 hours to the often memed "Whedon cut", I do believe not just WB, but all studios should put at least some faith in the directors they hired and not interfere with their artistic view. On the Marvel side, I feel as if their films, while largely consistent in quality, have become more like commercials for the next film, rather than strong, standalone stories which connect to the overarching narrative. But those are my thoughts, puts yours down in the comments.
